My LL freebie doesn't fit!

Postby Zingylemontart » Wed May 13, 2009 9:19 am

:( :( :( DS is only 12 weeks old, so when I requested the free nappy from Little Lamb, I opted for the 0-9 months size. It came the other day, I managed to get it on him, (barely), but it's so tiny it leaked in no time. I'm fed up, 'cos they look so cute. :doh: Plus it was meant to be my "try out" of two parters.

Can you tell I'm hacked off?! :roll:

Hun I've used LL's from birth with lo and since she was a few weeks old, I've ALWAYS had to boost them with hemp under the inserts. Which material did u get? If u got bamboo, it'll take a good few washes to get the absorbency up. Could also be that the nappy is faulty if it's not fitting ur lo, our size 1 still fit lo and she's 16.5lbs now - I'd contact them, I'm sure they'd rather send u another than lose a potential customer :)
TBH they're not my nappy of choice, they're just used if all the others are being washed/dried.

Thanks Chelle

He's 16lb 15oz (yes, I know - :shock: :shock: ). The nappy would barely go round him. (It's cotton, BTW)

I'd feel a bit cheeky contacting them and saying the freebie you sent me isn't right! :oops:

I'll give it some thought.

:shock: :shock: Wow I'm not suprised it doesn't fit...

I doubt it's faulty - You could contact them and they might let you have a larger one for the postage cost...

Wow, thats an impressive weight for 12wks :) I love cuddly babies!
I see what u mean about contacting them, didn't think of it that way lol. Why don't u put it in the classifieds are see if anyone wants to swap for a size 2? U never know :)

Am glad I'm not the only one with this problem. I got a free size 1 bamboo for my boy to try (he's 16.5lb too) thinking because it was okay upto 9 months size wouldn't be a problem. Silly not to measure him etc... anyway I had the same it leaked everywhere after a few hours and his clothes were soaking. Wishing I'd ordered a size 2 as well.

Mind you in the nappy's defence only washed it and inserts once so maybe it's not up to speed yet!

It is lovely and soft though and I prefer the wrap to the baby beehinds ones I have just because of the cuff bit seems a bit neater to me.

It's been one of those nappy days he weed all over himself twice too so I'm on my 3rd set of clothes!!

Bamboo takes quite a lot of washes (around 6-8 IIRC) to reach full absorbency...

Even cotton takes 3+ washes to get to full absorbancy

Wow to these cuddly babies, I can still squeeze Finn into his size 1 LLs :giggle: I found a size 1 tots rainbow fleece lurking at the back of a drawer a couple of days ago and I can still get that over his LLs too!

I really like them and find them very reliable, might be worth asking them if they'd do a swap as Steph suggested, especially if you tell them you're hoping to buy a few if the size 2 fit better :wink:
