eek, as pp have said just try her with water so she only drinks what she needs. As Louise said the peach cheek boosters are great and fit inside all of our fitteds so I would recommend them, I use them daily, the website is rubbish though!! x

No advice, but just wanted to send some :hug: - you must be so frustrated! Just when you think you have it cracked, she changes the goalposts again.

Just out of interest, how much does Bella drink during the day? (A friend commented today on how much Iris drinks, that's all. I thought she drank a normal amount, but my friend seemed to think she drinks a lot. Iris tends to go through about 3 TT cups of water, plus is BF on demand during the day.)

Lottie drinks loads and is a very heavy wetter. I have found boosting a HO with an easy peasy or the fleece topped ellas house hemp inserts helps, sometimes I use two to get it to last 3 hours. I also found double layering her woolies with a wool or fleece soaker and then longies over the top helped. I won't restrict her fluid intake and she doesn't drink just water (takes after me) so she has either watered down OJ or very weak squash. I also find Bamboo sandies with an added bamboo and hemp booster will work. Alternatively if you use pul wraps WN and motherease worked for us, even overnight.

I find stuffies fab for night as they can take a lot.

Hope you manage to sort something.

TBH, I know you say you don't want to limit the amount of fluids but that is alot of drink and no wonder she is soaking through. As Ali says, I would probably change to plain water and then maybe she will just drink what she needs rather than for the taste.

Ben only drinks water and milk and has 1 cup of water and about 3 large cups of milk in a day. Charlotte I haven't really thought about it but I know at night occasionally if she wakes she will ask for some juice and we refuse and offer her some water - she sometimes refuses this so we know she isn't really thirsty iykwim.

Gracie has 6oz bottles of milk and sometimes a 4oz one in the afternoon and 1 TT cup of very weak fresh orange but doesn't always drink all of it. Her HO NN was really wet this am, even the tabs were wet and I had added extra bamboo, will try and easy peasy next time, Sandys are def our most reliable nn just now
