You can get it from Lush Tush (Suzanne) on here :D but mainly it's from the States, I don't know of anyone else selling it. She sells it as a 'Nappy Cut' but this is big enough to use for a number of things. I bought 2 lots & it's a weird felt stuff that you can just cut, no need to hem etc ... I can't sew to save my life so just shopped it into booster size bits & stuff it in my pockets with some hemp or bamboo.

I always get it added to my DnF, GF's and LLS where possible though, really helps for my heavy wetter.



Would you say it can be used as a booster with cotton nappies then? (maybe for nightime if folded, provided it is trim enough in one layer?). I am considering investing in it :sew:

I think you could use it as a booster for anything really, it's just like a piece of felt, no thicker. You could put it under the sewn-in tongue of the cotton little lambs or between the nappy & the wrap. :D

There's places over here that sell it rather than waiting for it from the states - Suzanne (the above post :giggle: ) at www.lushtush.co.uk and also www.ecoearthfabrics.co.uk were selling it too last time I checked.

Yes, thank you, found it eventually :oops: . Can someone translate for me in baby terms what you can do with a 50cmX55cm precut? I am interested mainly in making boosters (maybe night ones), but don't have a clue how long/wide, etc they should be and how many I can make out of a precut :oops:

I just cut this piece into roughly the size of a insert/booster that I had ... I think I got at least 10 from 1 cut, probably more ... I haven't needed to cut up the 2nd piece I have yet. When you have the nappies you are thinking of adding it to you can look & see what size you need to cut the pieces to, it doesn't really matter.
