Soakers/Pilchers/Longies etc Whats the difference?

Postby elliebelly » Sun Oct 24, 2010 7:22 pm

Hello all,

Im still very new to fabric nappies and so far have tots bots bamboozles and a load of fluffles (which im loving both of them!) We did start off with a set of One Life cotton nappies with the One lIfe wraps.

Ive been reading about fleece wraps and i have 3 Starbunz wraps which are fleece with a mesh inside which i am using for night time.

Ive been reading about soakers, longies, flongies, skorties etc....

Basically, Im confuzzled! :shock: :shock: :shock:

What are the differences in these and in what situations can you NOT use them?

Thanks

Alex

Soakers are wool nappy covers
Longies are wool nappy covers that double as trousers
Flongies are fleece longies
Skirties are wool nappy covers with a skirt attachment
Shorties are a short version of longies

Wool is fantastic as a nappy cover, breathable, natural, it looks good, helps regulate body temperature. I can't really think of a time it couldn't be used. In the swimming pool perhaps :giggle:

I *think* pilcher is an Australian term for a nappy cover. Sorry, I don't know more than that though.
