Cloth nappies. I had toyed with the idea of them when Isaac became a toddler but the thought of all the washing and extra work really didn't appeal to me as a first time mum, even when the guilt of using disposables ate away at me.

A Background on Chinese Confinement
Chinese confinement is a practice that has been ingrained in Chinese culture for thousands of years. From pregnancy to giving birth, a woman's body uses up a lot of nutrition to grow the baby and birthing the baby is believed to weaken the body further and therefore there is a need to recuperate through bedrest and eat nourishing food during the postpartum period. This confinement period typically last for 30-40 days right after the baby has been delivered.
