Bamboo terry suitable for heavy wetter?

Postby hobbitfoot » Wed Apr 07, 2010 10:30 pm

Hi,

I currently use bamboo fitteds on my 6 (nearly 7) mth old but want to try terries cos I'm a bit of a nerd & want to try them just cos I can :wink:

Will a 60x60cm square be enough for him? He outpees everything except WNNN, baby beehind bamboo & bamboozles/little lamb with 2 added boosters in a couple of hours.

Can you put boosters inside a terry?

I am totally ignorant to this flat nappy malarkey, enlighten my dark mind :notworthy:

Really want to get stuck into all the different folds, geeeeeeeeeeek!

There's nothing wrong with being a nappy geek!

I wouldn't have thought they'd last a heavy wetter v long.we boost pockets with a terry folded into lots of layers and 2 ep hemp to last 2 to 3 hours.

Get the right fold and add boosters and you should be fine, especially with bamboo. Depending on which fold you use you can add boosters inside the folds, between nappy and skin or depending on wraps you could add them between nappy and wrap. You could also try wool backed boosters for extra absorbency.
