DS2 is 8 weeks. We've been in cloth for about a month now. Some of the newborn nappies I bought were too small by the time we started. I really liked the swaddlebee simplex but only have one of those and it won't fit for much longer. We've mainly used ME Sandy XS's but he soaks them very quickly and we have to change clothes most of the time. I think they are getting a bit small so I might try the small sandys I have. He was over 12lbs 2 weeks ago and has quite chunky thighs but is also long. The water here is hard and we do have a tumble drier but I prefer to air dry. Any suggestions for nappies to try? 2 parters or aio's or even pockets though I never liked pockets with my other 2. I have an aversion to microfibres, it sets my teeth on edge. Thanks in advance x
You would use wool instead of a pul cover. It basically allows the mositure to evaporate so the wool outer stays dry. It helps with heavy wetters because the excess wee that would cause a leak evaporates slowly instead.
If you're looking for more AIO's I can highly reccomend more simplex. Lola is a whopping 23lb already and just outgrowing the rise on a medium, but still have loads of room in the one size. She is a heavy wetter too and i have no problem with them,
I am getting back into line drying them now the sun is out, so they are great to dry that way too.
Hiya, I never got on with the Sandies with duo or rikki wrap combination as the extra material at the legs in the Sandies would stick out and wick. Perhaps this is what is happening to you too? Those wraps never leaked with any of my other nappies or prefolds. Hth X
