Hoping someone out there can give me some advice regarding using cloth nappies (mcns) while we are camping over the whole Bluesfest. This will be our first time there with our little fella, and am weighing up whether to take our normal nappies or just use disposables. Wondering if anyone can tell me what the washing machines are like?

The Green Party rule Byron Bay,and rightly so.
Using disposables is evading your parental duties and taking the easy way out,as well as not being environmentally friendly.

Sorry peta, Mr Ranger is a prickly customer
I really do not know but would guess for everyone hygiene and health disposables are the logical products for your bub
I would think as water points are limited and designed for food and drink use, carrying around soiled nappies in crowed tents
either for 8, 10 even 12 hours and soaking in the limited area of tents is so inconvenient

Cotton has it's own environmental problems

Are there washing machines at the campgrounds???
Well you learn something new every day...

I would use disposables, why make extra work for yourself ((your on holidays))
Keeping it simple is the best way, it can be very busy trying to catch all the great music.
Anything that costs you time is a liability, you will find yourself working your schedules out to the bands.

In the camping areas there is only a couple of feet between tent sites.
Not much room to hang nappies but I have seen it done before (those tied dyed hippy ones)
So yes its possible but I would be redeeming my time in other ways.

I'd lean towards using disposables..

Water points are few and far between

The old Greybeard would have suggested using EBay before Easter
Babies bring a nice price for some reason

I'm green-minded myself as well, so when my littl'uns were littl'uns I did research this issue fairly extensively.
The growing of the cotton is only the first half of the story. The second half is the bleach for sanitising them between uses.
Could be Greybeard has nailed it, Peta?
Send the anklebiter offshore.
