Newbie late convert!

Postby Charlootle » Mon Feb 08, 2010 1:00 pm

Hello!

I'm Charlotte and I have a little boy called Jaden who is 2 on the 5th of March. I've just started using cloth nappies as had a bit of a epiphany, it's rather late in the day I know but if/when I have any more children I'd like to use them again. I think the reason Ive come so late to it is lack of information, no-one has ever mentioned cloth nappies to me and I don't know anyone who uses them! Hence I am very uneducated! So far Jaden is using bumgenius Flips, bumgenius v3, a bamboozle (with a motherease airflow) and a tots bots flexitot. I've had good success with all of them although did get some wicking with the flip because hes been poorly and lain next to me in one position on the sofa for an extended period of time, so I'm guessing these wouldn;t make good night nappies?

I've yet to try a real nappy over night so any thoughts would be much appreciated! Shape wise Jaden is quite little, still has a baby pot belly but quite skinny legs. The bamboozle size 2 is on the second smallest waist setting.

So that's me, looking forward to getting to know you all :-)

Welcome to the tree :cnthug: for us the best night nappy is the wee notions night nappy, we absolutely love them :) either that or we use a fuzzi bunz stuffed with 2 hemp inserts and a microfibre :)

hi :idea: welcome to the tree
I only ever use Wee Notions Night Nnotions or HL Bedbugs at night covered with wool or fleece at night and find that the WNNN are best since they are usually dry to the touch in the mornings :D

:idea: Welcome to CNT. For a 2 year old you'll probably need to get a dedicated night nappy as I doubt you'll get any others to work succesfully without leaking. Have fun finding the ones that work for you.
