Recommend me something reliable for a 9lb baby boy please

Postby mummysab » Thu Jun 16, 2011 9:13 am

Im using itti AIO's and Thirsties duo diapers atm, and finding neither last all that long, although the thirstes fit alot better than the ittis, they are both leaking. The legs are gaping around the ittis, but the thirsties fit well.
thanks x

Have you tried the easyfits? When Darcie started out pee'ing the teenyfits I was lost for AIO ideas but we love the easyfits! :thumbsup: You can easily boost them with a bamboo little lamb booster too which adds next to no bulk at all but offers more absorbancy if you need it :wink:

Are the easyfits huge on a littly though? I like nappies to be quite slim fitting xx

BG aio smalls are a fab fit on Lucas still (at 13lb 4 this morning) and worked easily from 8lb. They lasted Ryan til he was 4 months old as well and probably 16-17lbs. I bought a nappy cut of zorb from Lush Tush and cut boosters for my teenyfits, I now use them in the aio as he's starting to wet through them quicker and they'll last 3-4hrs.

Hi Hun I use thirsties duo on my LO but size 2. Where was it leaking from and do you mean wee leaks or the other :giggle: ? Where is it leaking from?
My DD wee s forwards iykwim so we always need boosting at the front, the back is always dry. With the duos I fold the hemp/cotton insert in half and put it under the microfibre bit, then put the doubled up bit at the front. Works a treat for us so might be worth a try?
I ve just tried a bitti tutto and it wicked wee out for us :(

You may have a heavy wetter, if so you ll need to look for bamboo, hemp, zorb type materials, you ll not be able to get away with microfibre alone but microfibre boosted with a good soaking material booster. The duo should be ok with the cotton/hemp bit.

Good luck xxx

Jake was 9lb at birth and he fitted in Teenyfits but looking back, we could have just gone straight into Easyfits I think. I second what Tory said, Easyfits are fab, lots of room for boosting too!

Some people find they dont get a good fit with Ittis for a while and then later on they suddenly start fitting better. We get on better with the SIO than the AIO. I am also loving Weenotions pockets. I think apart from that though we mainly use fitteds and wool/fleece.

Next

Return to AIO's (All in ones)
