Hi, I have just joined this forum and started using reusable for the first time 4 months ago. Still very confused but getting there. I am doing a combination of terry cloths and AIO (was given these by a friend). I tend to use terries throughout the day as I find them easier to use and dry.
I will need to move onto medium wraps soon and wondering what I should get ( given mother ease small). I have yet to venture into night time wearing and would like too but not sure what wraps and would I just have to add extra boaster to keep her dry?
Thank you.

Depending on your LO I think you may find a terry won't last the night without a huge amount of boosting, but it could, are you using bamboo ir cotton terries? Is your LO still fed through the night? And how big is she? My DD was a light wetter and when she was small I could get away with a bamboo terry and a easy peasy hemp booster, but that would only last a couple of hrs on DS2.

As for wraps, motherease are great and very reliable so if your getting on with them stick with them if you want something a bit prettier you could try a WN wrap

Thanks for your reply. They are cotton. She still feeds at night and is tiny at 11lb after 4 months. Hence why I started using terries as the other types I was given were massive on her. I might then look into a night nappy for her then instead. Like mother ease so will stick with them as they has been fine, may be in summer I might look at the other wraps when her bottom is on show as would like something cute.

If she doesn't wee too much you may get away with a bamboo baby beehind, I think they are called multifits now, but I could be wrong, bibsnbots sell them, these were what I used on my DD for nights, she was probably about 11lb at 4 months if not smaller ;) also we managed to get away with wee notions northern lights (their day fitteds) at night with her, sadly they don't do their night nappies in a small AFAIK.

I would double up your terries and try that oven night and then just check how wet she is at one of her night feeds, at least then you will know if you can get away with it, depending on what size terries you have you could pad fold one into the middle of a jo fold, worth a try.

Oh and welcome to the tree :D
