Argggh - soaking through her fitteds now :(

Postby tanya » Sat May 16, 2009 10:38 am

Well, Bella was in a Hollow Oak fitted (usually uber absorbant) for 2.5 hours this morning, and when I just changed it, the nappy was absolutely soaked as were her woollies :( I've recently stripped all the nappies so I know it's not that.

I'm at a bit of a loss of what to do now... I have a pretty good stash of absorbant nappies - JRs, HO, WNNL etc, but she is still wetting through them soooo quickly.

Luckily we have some new longies from Ali turning up soon, so we can change her longes during the day. Atm she has to wear the same pair all day - which is fine with her other Pixie Knits longies, but if I use her interlock from HO, they are soaked within hours. It's not as if she could wear her HO longies for half the day and then her PK for the other half as the interlock just won't last that long. DH doesn't actually use the interlock for that very reason.

I think I need to start boosting the nappies. But most of the hemp pieces I have are too wide to fit inside the fitteds I have.

Short of having a stash completely made of night nappies for use during the day, I don't know what else to do.

Another problem is her NEW night nappies are no longer working properly and need serious boosting to last the night. I've been putting an EP hemp insert + 2 bamboo boosters in with the normal inserts in her night nappy.

How much more can this baby wet??? :shock: :shock:

Perhaps it is teeth? I know occasionally I am at my wits end and then it stops after a couple of days. Hopefully it will be the same for you....

Could you maybe buy some hemp material and make your own boosters for the nappies? That way you could make them the right width for each nappy and it shouldn't be too expensive either.

She does have teeth coming through atm, but this has been going on for a while - at least since she came back from holiday. I know she's drinking more, but I'm not about to start restricting her drinks.

Nice idea, but I have absolutely no sewing skills whatsoever. So many of my coats are missing buttons cos either I don't sew them back on or I do, and they fall off again a couple of weeks later.

I have some really narrow hemp boosters that I use in Katie's bedbugs, can't remember the name of them. If I can remember or find some similar I'll let you know. Peachy Cheeks bamboo boosters fit nicely in JR's and HO's as they're hourglass shaped.

oh no Tanya, can't believe she's wetting even more than before. I'm luck that Anna really doens't drink loads during the day (well she would if i gave her squash) so she wees enough but not too much. i use Greenkids boosters in my fitteds when they need boosting.

Bella does have squash, but it's the sugar-free high juice stuff and she literally has a splash in the bottom of her cup to give it a little flavour and colours the water a little, but not enough for strong flavour.

Neither DH or I want to restrict her drinks - she's always drank a lot, even when she was only on water she'd get through a lot of cups in a day.

I would try giving her just water. You won't be restricting her drinks but she might just drink what she needs rather than lots becasue she likes the taste.
