Every baby guide I have used so far has either recommended cotton or non-wovens, so I was very confused. Read more at Wild at Heart blog. I usually buy non-washable brands as I hate the thought of wearing dirty nappies. As a baby I am tired of the mess and feel uncomfortable. But what I didn’t realize is that to make my child safe I should use a woman’s fertility guide.
There are many reasons why I should use a woman’s fertility guide. For one thing you can use the best washable nappies with the best benefits. It’s also an extra layer of protection from chemicals and mould. It will help with any illness and flu, you might be having as well. And you will be helping your body have the best nutrition it can get to help the pregnancy.
I’ve always had problems with washing washable nappies and trying to make them dry. They get all wrinkled and soiled. When it gets all wrinkled it makes it hard to clean the legs when you have to wear them, especially when you have a small baby.
Baby guide recommends washable maternity cotton and has made some changes to the product so that it is easy to use. The solution is now a special wrinkle free cotton which has all the qualities I want in a washable nappy.
The reason why I prefer washable nappies over non-wovens is because the fabric is softer and has a higher absorbency than a non-woven. Both materials are designed to absorb moisture and keep the baby dry. But a synthetic/non-woven can’t do this.
But even with washable nappies, the best part is the ability to wash and dry them easily. So you don’t have to run back to the shops and back to the changing cubicle every time you have to wash a nappy. I am really lucky to have a kitchen computer and so I can just make a batch of washable nappies using nothing more than an electric bowl and washing machine.
My best advice for using baby guides is to make sure the instructions are written by a professional and that they provide you with a cream to put on your hands before using. Some womb baby guides have only a simple spread of pictures and not enough information to make sure that you don’t make a mistake. Make sure they include videos too as the videos are really the best thing for explaining how to do things.
My best advice for using a woman’s fertility guide is to read it in the first three pages and then it should say the risk factors and side effects. I am sure that if I knew what I was getting into that I would have read the full manual, but at the end of the day if I was pregnant it was for my baby. If I didn’t read the manual correctly and I thought I would need to buy a few more things than what I actually needed I probably would have bought a lot more.
Baby guide doesn’t tell you everything you need to know about carrying your baby. Many women’s fertility guides have some rather strange notions on what is suitable to wear and when. It doesn’t talk about how many hours on your feet should be or what kind of swimwear to wear when you are swimming and giving birth.
If you have read reviews on baby guides and the ones that I have seen, you should make sure that the one you are reading has lots of positive reviews. These reviews will give you a clear idea of how much experience the companies have and how knowledgeable they are.
You might want to talk to friends who have made the transition from nursing to nappies and see how they did. Make sure you check out baby product forums too, which can be really helpful when you need a second opinion. The best thing you can do is really think about what you really want to achieve in regards to washing and drying your own nappies and how to do it.
