Iris seems to be going through a super-wetting stage. I just can't make nappies last on her.
I'm hoping it's just because it's been a bit warmer of late ... She usually drinks 3-4 full TT cups of water a day. I only give her water, no juice, so I know she's drinking because she's thirsty, rather than because she likes the taste. Over the past few weeks, she's upped her number of BFs too. She was happy enough with just first thing in a morning and last thing at night, but she's now BF about four times a day and draining both breasts each time. This in addition to her usual TT cups of water. I'm stuffing all our pockets with a combo of either Big Weeds and Babeco bamboo boosters or hemp Wonderfulls and the bamboo boosters (not enough Big Weeds!), but I'm lucky if that lasts 3 hours. I put her in a minkee Green Kids pocket this morning with the Wonderfull/bamboo stuffing and we had compression wicking just 2 hours later. I'm planning to strip the nappies, but I only did that quite recently, so I don't think it will help. But I'm going to try anyway.
Any suggestions? Is it just that she's getting bigger and learning some bladder control, so flooding the nappies? Am I going to have to change exclusively to fitteds? (Please no! Too many pretty pockets and DH doesn't like two parters.) Or is it just the change in weather and she might wet less when it turns cooler again? (Not that I'm trying to wish summer away!) I'm trying to use fitteds and wool as much as I can, but I'm worried about her being too warm with the wool ... Oh, and I also struggle with more boosting in pockets, 'cause she has really, really skinny thighs and so we get leg gapes if I over-stuff.
The thing that confuses me is that she's quite a light wetter overnight. I don't even have to boost a Baby Beehinds; it lasts 11 hours.
I guess I'm just after some help/reassurance.
