Wet LO

Postby jennyjanesharp » Sat May 23, 2009 6:50 pm

my LO is very wet, and it seems that the fluffels (tot's bots and little lamb versions) are just not cutting it - even with extra boosters.

she's not very pooey.
She's quite a chunky monkey too - so infuriatingly between size 1 and 2 , and suggestions???

If you have the size 2 fluffles you can fold them over and use them as a bulky size 1, the same with the little lambs.

I remember there was a time around the 5 months that he suddenly started weeing loads and each nappy had an extra 40cm bamboo terry inside just to hold the extra wee

If she's a heavy wetter mf probably isn't a great fabric to choose for her nappies. When the nappy is very wet and gets squished you'll get compression leaks. You'll probably need to invest in some hemp or bamboo nappies. What sort of boosters have you tried using in the nappies so far?

I agree with Louise that bamboo or hemp nappies might suit her better. I personally found fluffles extremely bulky on Matthew when he was little, bamboo or hemp nappies would be a slimmer option too.

Bamboo or hemp nappies are fab, Sandys and baby behinds are great, I use them both overnight, the BBH are slim to and are great for day time as well. x
