Fleece soaker on top of disposable at night?

Postby Zimbah » Wed Jan 18, 2012 9:44 pm

I use disposables at night (cloth in the day) but DD is currently feeding all night long and weeing so much it soaks through the nappy. Sometimes her vest and babygro are wet up to the armpits, plus her grobag is wet and the bed a bit too. I had what seems to be a PUL/fleece night time type wrap that I was given second-hand in a bag of stuff, I'm not sure exactly what it is, it's PUL/plasticky all over but with fleece leg holes and waist. It does up with poppers on both sides (rather than at the front). Anyway last night I put that on over her disposable, together with a thin terry booster between the disposable and the wrap. Success! This morning the booster was damp, the vest etc was dry. As the wrap is PUL/plastic I just rinsed it off and hung to dry. I'm doing the same tonight, but clearly if this works I will have to get more than one wrap so that I can put them through the wash.

That was a very longwinded way of saying, does anyone know what my wrap is :-? ? Where I can get more? Or, if not, would a fleece soaker do the same job on top of a disposable if I stuff a booster between the two??

I love those wraps :-)

I would think a fleece soaker would probably work as well.

It sounds like a lovebums to me. Unfortunately they are no longer made. Stacinator wraps are probably the most similar you will get now but a wool or fleece soaker will work just as well.

Ah, lovebums would make sense as there's also a lovebums fitted nappy in the bundle, which I'm using. Those stacinators are expensive, I'll have a look for some fleece soakers on FSOT. Thanks everyone for your help :thumbsup:

Fleece soakers are great, how often do you change your lo at night?

I would just change the nappy more often tbh. We have always (until recently) used sposies at night and the only time we had one like that the gel stuff had leaked out everywhere and it stunk to high heaven! I would hate to have left Austin like that every night.

That's true, the gel stuff is disgusting and I hate getting any on dd's skin. How old / big is your lo? Perhaps we can help you find a cloth solution that works for nights : wink:
