After buying a beautiful stash of WNOS DD has decided to become a super soaker
and I mean big time she drenched a pocket stuffed with 8 layers of bamboo terry and a 3 layer hemp booster in wait for it.............one hour
As for all the lovely minkee stay dry linings forget it! they are drenched too, which means what happens? they wick like mad
and I have to change her whole outfit. At home I change DD EVERY 2 hours and even then that might not been soon enough. When we are out that's when things get even worse, as I never seem to make it in time to change her so have to do the full outfit change aswell.
I'm getting really fed up of all the leaks but I don't want to give up my cloth that I love so much, I just want the problem to disappear or for DD to be a normal wetter
I decided to try stuffing a BG thinking it wouldn't wick, well it didn't wick but the inserts were so soaked and heavy they dragged the nappy down so in theory she could pee out the side, but technically we didn't have a leak.
Now I am seriously considering going back to fitteds, we do fitteds at night with wool with no issues whatsoever. I'm just so frustrated that I bought this beautiful stash that I now can't use on DD
and can't really afford to re-buy a whole stash at once. I am pinning all my hopes on the new Flutterby Fluff 12 layer bamboo fleece fitted as this is the best fabric for DD which really lasts. We used to use BBH at night till her thighs got too chunky
and I loved them. I purposely bought GN OS with the hopes of using them on #2 (if and when) but I hate having things that are not used sitting in the cupboard but on the other hand I can't bear to part with these gorgeous nappies, I am so fickle
I use bamboo inserts (petite dessous short loop terry) and hemp boosters to stuff the pockets as I always find bamboo more absorbent over hemp, I tried adding a fleece liner to the minkee lined pockets but I can't say it really made much difference. I also use Itti Bitti's (which prior to the super soaker I loved and still do) but they are even worse than the pockets. Basically I consider making it to the 2 hour mark without wet clothes an achievement
Help meeeeeeeeeee!!!! I'm buying some longies for daywear as I only have nighttime soakers, but I also need some PUL wraps, I didn't think I'd be going back here, so recommendations welcome, I prefer poppers, I really detest applix. As for the stay dry linings DD having a wet bum is a real hang up of mine, as I just think I'd hate to be sat in wet pants, but when used in fitted will they make a difference with my super soaker? or will they just wimp out and drown like the pocket linings?
Sorry for the novel
and thanks for reading.
