Dumb question: what do I do with 55X55 cm terries?

Postby ameliepoulin » Wed Aug 03, 2011 6:23 am

I warned you, this is a very dumb question, but I bought some medium preloved terries (Green Baby) and I seem not to be able to do anything with them on my 11 week-old large baby. I tried to fold them but I can barely get them round her, hence my suspicion that they might simply be the wrong size for her. I am confessing my love for prefolds in wraps, but then it is too big. Is there a solution to this or I simply got the wrong size for her?

Sell them,
Cut them and make wipes or inserts with them.
I used mine to make a nappy and some inserts.

Have you tried different folds?

I use them on the changing mat cause she usually tiddles and they are so absorbent.

The only fold I can do with the 50x50's is the kite fold, boosted, and keeping the 'kite' quite long.I don't think they'll fit Sarah (nearly 10 weeks) much longer this way, so they'll be made into boosters or used pad folded.

Well, it looks like pad folded it is :(. Really wanted to use them as flat nappies but no chance, she is definitely too big for them.
Many thanks for your ideas on this.

hee hee I had never even realised there were different sizes of terries!! My mum gave me the ones I was in when I told her I was pregnant, I think only once has 1 been anywhere near ds' bottom as a nappy. They have been used for lots of other purposes though, burp cloths, cleaning up sick, floor cloths, comforters, you name it we've done it!
