Hello. My name is Mrs K and I am addicted to cloth nappies! There, I said it! They say that admitting it is the first step but do you know what, I don’t want to be cured!
I love my cloth nappies. Oh, I mean baby boy’s cloth nappies! I love the patterns and colours and the way they keep him without nappy rash (except when teething) and the absorbency and the fit and how we have never had a poo leak … I could go on forever. I also love how they could work out over time cheaper than disposables. I say could because anyone who uses cloth nappies knows that it is almost impossible to refuse either a cloth nappy bargain or a new print!
Take the recent limited edition Chaplin print by Bum Genius. Apparently it sold out in the UK in just 6 minutes! We were all warned that there would not be many arriving to these shores. It was in such high demand that some stockists ended up with draws just to decide who could buy one! Now, what’s a girl to do in these circumstances? Call upon family and friends in the USA of course! With the help of a very kind family member I am now the lucky owner of a brand new chaplin print. But do you know what, I don’t love it! I went to all the trouble of getting it and having it shipped over to me and when it arrived I have to say I was ambivalent at best. It is growing on me but I can’t bring myself to remove it from the packet just in case I can’t grow to love it! I need help I know!
These limited edition prints are in demand though. I saw a Tots Bots Royal Flush sell on eBay for £190 the other day! Bum Genius Irwin and Jules often sell for twice the rrp. The world has gone crazy! But people do say, something is only worth what someone will pay for it.
Now yes I do feel that I am addicted to cloth nappies but I would never pay over the odds. In fact the majority of my stash are eBay cheapies so maybe there is hope for me yet!
Are you addicted to cloth nappies? Have you ever paid more than you should have for a nappy?
