Fleece sleepsuit as nappy wrap?

Postby little1 » Fri May 25, 2012 8:04 pm

HI, just a quick question. Bubs is due in october and i have been offered a bundle of newborn fleece sleepsuits from a friend. I was wondering if with them being fleece i could get away with fitted nappies with no wrap in the very early days??

Also i was possibly thinking i could sew an extra layer of fleece into the nappy area to act as a soaker? The only reason i am keen to do this is that DH hates 2 parters and i can't really afford a lot of wool atm and i am keen to use some fitteds if possible.

Should work. I use a fleece wrap and a fleece sleepsuit with my 14mth dd and it works. Don't know about a newborn though but seeing as you will probably be changing nappies more frequently, at night with a newborn, then I think it will work.

yep it is fine, i used fleece pj's on Grace with a fitted and no wrap and on William a fleece sleepsuit with just a nappy under and he was a mega piddler when he was teeny, never had any problems at all xx

And for all these winters i've always used a PUL wrap under a fleece sleepsuit! Now I know!
