I have a Large UDMinkee Aplix which fits like a dream. Also the Swaddlebees wraps with aplix fit Dawnie too. So they're probably best bets! One life in size 4 also fits her thighs.
I'm finding wool and fleece much better, as it doesnt leave red marks etc


Not keen on aplix as it used to rub Ty so avoid it with Roxy just incase :oops:. I love wool and fleece at night but don't fancy it for in the sling as don't fancy compression wicking on me. Thanks for suggestions though.

I've spoken to pocket bots before, and cant remember what their Large size went up to in the thighs. it was only just too small for Dawn i think... so will be in the low teens?


Sounds like we would need med then, I tought as much but was hoping for that price would be ok, oh well. Thanks you saved me money trying it and it not fitting.

You could always try the poppered versions? But I've never had the aplix rub on Dawnie, and you've seen how big her budda belly is :giggle:
If only she was a bit bigger, you could have borrowed a couple of my wraps lol. Or if Dawn was a more 'normal' size lol! But thinking about it, the aplix on my UD lets you cross the tabs over... Hmmm...... I'll measure it and see what it comes up as if you like? It might be a bit big, but you'll get an idea of how the aplix would be on her?

I found that double layering the wool when Katie is in the sling/pushchair prevents wicking so I use a soaker with longies/skirtie/shorties over the top. :wink:

ETA I think an extra layer/panel in the crotch in woollies helps too. :D

Our Tykie Diapers felted wool wrap would be perfect for a baby with chunky thighs - Jules you're welcome to come round and try the fit...
The legs are quite loose on Grace on the tightest setting but we've never had a leak from it yet...
I'm guessing the fit of the PUL ones would be similar...

I also find the legs on blueberry wraps pretty roomy...

Kirsty, she is desciptive like that, think it is because she is quite long with it so can hide it :giggle:.
Louise thanks for tips about woolies didn't think of doing that, will definatly try it.
Steph What size do you have? as I looked at them think med may fit but don't know how long for seeing as the max size of leg hole is only just bigger than Roxy but think L may swamp her going by other nappies etc we have.

Thanks all,

Some good suggestions to think about. Tonight she is in a little lamb size 2 wrap which is a nice fit and very soft, will see how it is in the morning but its BORING :giggle: :giggle: :giggle:

I think I should try and sell the WN wraps TBH as I can't see her thighs thining out to fit in them ever!!! <SIGH>
