At the beginning of this term, I started sending my wee one year old to care two days a week so that I could start getting a bit more work done. I did the same at some point or other with my older two children, and had always sent them with cloth nappies, so it didn’t even cross my mind to go out and buy disposables for childcare’s sake. I set him up with a small stash of secondhand AIOs and SIOs as I figured these would be easiest (foolproof, so I thought). So off my little Leo went on his first day with a bag of cloth wipes & cloth nappies & a little nappy bin.
Third child syndrome manifests in the fact that there are no cute pictures stuck all over his childcare nappy bin. On the flip side he has the best baby book. Swings and roundabouts 😉
They seem to have gotten themselves into the ‘child in cloth’ groove now, nothing remotely interesting has come home on his cute wee butt for a couple of weeks.
Do you send cloth to childcare? Had any problems or interesting experiences? What’s your “nappy bin” set up at childcare? (I send supermarket bags in to line it, leave the bin there and just bring the bag home. I realise this is not the most environmentally friendly solution. Do you do something better? Do tell!)
