1st of April - but Benjamin came 5 days early, so never know!
It was supposed to be a medium but I think it'd been shrunk a bit by previous owner
Yes, I have one that *was* a large (or maybe even XL!) but it's tiny now - hardly a medium I'd have thought. So I think they must be fairly easy to shrink. I've got an orange one already (which I bought unused but dyed - I think by Kool Aid - from someone else) and it has one leg hole slightly smaller than the other one (almost like the stitching of the cuff got twisted)!
Otherwise it's a lovely fit for Benjamin and worked very well covering his night nappies. But once I lanolised it again, it was leaving marks on his legs. So must try to do lots of stretching and have him wear it during the day a bit to see if we can get it less tight on the leg.

I guess it's quite expensive to get Kool Aid from here in the UK? Guess you just need friends/family in USA to post it to you!
You can often get packs of it over there 10 for $1 - and I only needed 2 packs for what I did yesterday. So worked out very cheap for me - but then again, I got mine direct and without any postage!
