wee notions -help

Postby fleur08 » Mon Nov 10, 2008 11:14 am

hello, im a newbie and recently addicted to cloth - daughter is 15 weeks old and have been using for last 5 weeks.
well i dared to have a look at wee notions site - and i want them !!!!!!!!!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

what i would like to know is whats the difference between the minky + cuddlesoft ? is one better for a heavy wetter + do they only make wraps with the side snaps, coz i dont like them, prefer front fastening.

thinking of a btp pocket but cant decide on what to have, why did they have to have so much choice.................

:hohoho: :hohoho: never look at Wee Notions unless you want to spend lots of money :hohoho:

The cuddlesoft and the minkee are both polyester fabrics so should both be suitable for a heavy wetter, they are just a different feel.

The wraps are only in the side snap design I am afraid. If you prefer front fastening then I really like Nature Babies wraps, they have some lovely designs, although is a bit more limited than Wee Notions.

I have a couple of btp pockets on order to try out as they look fab and have had really good reviews.

Good luck with making your choices :D

IMO the cuddlesoft and minkee are very similar, nearly identical, just cuddlesoft is cheaper! The OS pockets are FANTASTIC!!!!

Butting in...what does cuddlesoft feel like? Do you have a cuddlesoft nappy/wrap? How does it differ from Minkee?

oooh you poor thing, discovering nappy addiction!! lol, its like a support group here sometimes!! >:D<

i love WN nappies - and the OS nappy is BRILLIANT!! i find it a better fit than the side snap pockets and good value as you dont have to buy several sizes. it takes me at least an hour to look through the embroidery and decide what i want!!

also, inserts dont come with the pockets, but they can be stuffed with most things - my favourite is a blueberry onesize insert (Babykind sell them) or WN sell their own inserts, but ive not tried them!

Weenotions are also what inspired me to try cloth sanpro; good luck if you get addicted to that!! :D
