Got mine today (amazing peachy tots!!!!)

Im not sure if it's from the wrap but she has red sores on her legs now, it may have been from her night nappy though. The leg bindings were wet after 3 hours but didnt leak....

The only wraps I found to be soft enough on the skin at night was WN wraps :lol:

When I first used wraps I found wraps would leave a mark if too tight but also if too loose because they rub! I put a finger in the leg holes at the sides & run them round the back & then upto the front, making sure there is just over a finger's width all the way round. This also help to make sure the elastic is evenly stretched all the way round & not pulling in any places! :lol:

What are you using under the wrap hun? is it sopping wet when you take it off?

3 hours isnt bad considering how much of a heavy wetter she is surley? i change K every 3 hours during the day (maybe more) and he isnt a heavy wetter?

Could it be that the wrap is too big and covering a lot of leg, not just nappy? I'm thinking it could be getting wet and rubbing her skin making it sore.

It is pretty huge :hohoho: It's on the med setting and getting wing droop a bit, but i had to put it in the med setting as she has a large nappy on :roll:

She is having a rough time with some sort of allergy at the moment and her skin is bad, her guts are bad too :(
