first I have a variety of pockets each with different issues!
Minkis/slinki minkis velcro and weenotions poppers fab fit on Isobella but they leak, i have been using microfibre inserts and also tried folding up terrys, do you think i need more absorbancy? any recomendations
i dont find microfibre very absorbent, it tends to squish out wee - try going for Hemp and bamboo on top this works well for us!
blueberry and itti bittis smalls this is soooo gorgeous and seems like it would not leak but..... its too baggy on the belly, and too snug on the legs? argghhhhhhh so leaks out the top Do i but mediums in hope for a better fit?
can you do these up on different popper settings on the legs and waist? meaning the waist is tighter and the legs a bit more loose?
Similar probs with wraps gaps on the belly with rubbing on the legs, do i just get mediums! - i find WN medium wraps brill as the poppers can easily go on different settings! my DD has really chunky thighs and a small waist lol
My little lambs are not really absorbant enough now she is a biit older and going longer at night sleeping any recommendations for boosters? as i love these nappies so much and they are fab for containment but just soakijng wet in the morning
we didnt last long with LL/totsbots etc over night as they cant hold that much i found, we moved to medium night nappies when dd was 3 months old and they do the trick and only leaked poo a few times when she was a bit on the small side in the legs but they are great now, she is 5 months and 15lbs ish - we rate UDNN, WNNN, FFN and Bedbugs
Isobella is quite skinny on the belly but hasnt got particularly chunky thighs either
Any advise ? ha ha one day i will be able to help others out with their questions!!!!!

So what really works well is itti bitti, going to get some mediums for the day. does anyone know what boosters i can get that are similar to itti inserts that i can boost/stuff my other nappies with
Where can I but some decent boosters! preferably preloved but last resort new but as cheap as poss.
Would love some night nappies but cannnot afford just now so want to boost what i already have. But for future which night nappies shall I aim for!
