"diasana tie on nappies"

Fantastic! I don't use anything else.... I have been using these nappies since my son was 6 weeks old. We never have leaks or spills! They look nice and slim on even as a toddler.

If you are on a budget then these are for you, the most expensive ones i have found are £1.60 each! Okay so you then need wool wraps (2 of each size at about £8/£10, but do have a very good resell value). You do also need boosters, but if it is absorbant then you can put it in! I use the hush cloths that go with them, as well as home made boosters, and muslins

Don't be put of by the fact they need tieing, as once you have done one you will find it as quick and easy as any other nappy.

These nappies get my vote every time

Washing instructions - couldn't be easier !

I store used nappies using a "dry pail" system, so they all go into a large bucket with a sealble lid. No water is added, as who wants smelly water hanging around! All solid waste goes down the toilet, and to make that easier I use recycled fleece nappy liners. (Fleece allow smoisture to pass though, but does not wick backwards so keeps your babies bottom perfectly dry - plaese email me if you would like to know where you can buy these -

I do two washes a week, using the prewash and 60C wash cycle on the machine, i usually let this happen over night. The nappies can then be dryed on the line, remember sunlight bleaches any stains. Or on the radiator, or in the tumble dryer. They can be dry in less than 1/2 hour on the radiator or washing line, and I am sure less in the tumble dryer.

The wool pants need to be relanolised every 6 -8 weeks and this is very easy to do, but you need about 24 hours for the process.
They are made of organic cotton and the hush cloths are either cotton or hemp.

I hope this all helps others try the best nappy system around
