The services that do it for you sound like a good idea though.

Only I'd be slightly concerned about the storage (don't some collect 2x a week) and whether you get your own stuff back or is it a sort of communal wash?

Easier said from this distance with no children though!

fair enough.

Mind you in some areas there are people who will do all the washing for you and they collect the dirty ones.

Sleep deprivation is just the tip of the iceberg, they're like a tag team at the moment, one stops crying the next one starts, I have to tread carefully

The scheme we're on collects/delivers once a week, provides a flip top bin and bag. They do some sorting becasue we get back vests and other bits and pices that have accidently found there way into the bin (nicely washed). I'm not sure if we get the same nappies back, I doubt it as part of the efficiency of the process is that large quantites are boil washed at the same time. The only thing we have to do is to remeber to wash the wraps. Occasionally, if she's been fruit assisted it can get messy but that's no different from using disposables. So far very impressed.

It's in the pipeline, unless we've got loads of material in we tend to put out one article a week.

It's quite high up the pipeline in fact . I think there are two more articles before it, so we're looking at mid-next week - is that's OK?

If there's a queue that's fantastic! Pleased to see that so much stuff is coming in. No probs just didn't want it to be lost in the ether.

Definitely not lost! I enjoyed (if enjoyed is the right word) reading it, and I think it should cause plenty of discussion which will be great. Part of the reason for a slight queue is to make sure people get a proper chance to be seen as well.
