Ooh yes well size 1s arent really newborn so should def still be fitting those. And even with boosting theyre not lasting? :(

No idea, i guess he must be a very heavy wetter. Scarlett was fine in her Tots Bots size 1s until about 4-5months i think, maybe longer - with boosting added as she needed it.

Not sure what to suggest other than more boosting maybe with something like hemp or zorb?

im boosting with 1LL bamboo and a BG NB insert, and they are still sodden. I think he does just pee alot! I dont think it will be that long before bgs fit... hes a big boy!

I would think that you might need something more absorbent than those tbh - the BG NB insert is microfiber if i remember correctly which basically acts as a sponge so pretty useless for boosting as it just squeezes the water back out if compressed. The LL bamboo booster might not be enough on its own. Something that locks wetness away like an Easy Peasy hemp booster would be good between the nappy and the wrap, this will help lock the wetness away from his skin x

You could add the bamboo booster ontop of that too to help draw it all away towards the wrap rather than his bum.

I agree with Rox-we've been using 2 little lamb boosters since about 5-6 weeks and this lasts 2 hours usually. Zorb boosters a bit longer. I have found microfibre useless for heavy wetters.

Did you buy them new? if so how many times were they washed because it takes 6-8 washes for them to reach full absorbency xx

Lauren was 6lb 11oz and fitted Teenyfits, xs BG AIO and xs Real Easy from birth. We used fitteds as well, but not as much as our AIOs.

He's out grown his aois almost, he's 12lb now! But the aoi does seem to suit better. And yes I did buy new but they've had a fair few washes now so should be up to full absorbency
