Large fleece wraps - where to start?

Postby ilovemyoboes » Sat Aug 28, 2010 8:58 pm

Having issues with PUL wraps marking my little man's legs as he has very chunky thighs but a slim-ish waist. Never used any fleece wraps though and have no idea where to start looking or which to choose for a large, active 16month old. Any recommendations ladies?

Will fleece wraps 'breathe'? (Don't like it when the nappy under the PUL is really soggy after a nap.) Can you use fleece wraps when the child is sleeping?

My son only has fleece or wool on a night now (more fleece than wool) and they suit him (heavy wetter) I highly recommend The Nappy Garden as her customer serivice is great and she stocks several makes (i love the pumpkin pants ones) :wink:

Totsbots fleece wraps get my vote if you want something that isn't pull up like a fleece soaker.
If you want to buy WAHM, I love our Snugglebots snap up fleece soaker :D

Fleece is ideal for night use as it allows the moisture to evaporate, so the nappy shouldn't be as wet in the morning.
As fleece isn't waterproof you may find that the outside is very slightly damp in the morning, not wet or leaking, just where the moisture is evaporating.

Natures Babies do a Multiwrap which is a double layer fleece wrap with side snap poppers & let gussets to help with any poo leaks! Or you could get a fleece soaker or flongies (fleece trousers) that he could wear with a t-shirt as pyjamas. Jabula Baby & Bespoke Baby Room stock some lovely ones incl Pumpkinpants.

Hope that Helps! :D

Yes, that does help, thanks zoeyboo. Will have a look at those websites. Tried the snugglebots site and it's down for maintenance which is a shame.
