Disposable question

Postby freckle » Sat Aug 29, 2009 9:21 pm

I know this is all about cloth chat but wondered if anyone might be able to answer a question.

We only have one night nappy at the moment so we are still using disposables most nights. Oz tends to get a bit unsettled from 3ish onwards and on the nights I change his nappy he goes on to sleep a lot better but when I do change his nappy it wakes him up so takes a while to get back to sleep so would rather not have to change it everynight.

Anyway my question is do you think you could put a fleece liner in a disposable to hopefully take away the wet/cold feeling? Not sure if it would effect the way the nappy works?

Not sure really. Can't really see why not, try it & see.

What night nappy are you using? I find a standard minki is really good at night & it's quick drying too, so I am getting away with just 2 of them at the moment & not a disposable in the house :wine: As it's fleece it keeps the wet away from him obviously.

I've got a WNNN but have a puddlekins night and UDNN on the way. But also waiting on some longies as all my wraps are too small for the night nappies.

Will have a look at the minki - could do with one that I know will dry very quickly.

I'll stick a liner in tomorrow and try it though.

I used fleece liners in sposies a few times before I found night nappies that worked for us, as I wanted to keep J's bottom away from contact with nasty gel. They didn't affect the way the nappy worked at all.

Do minki's come with all the boosters/inserts you need or do you need to buy them on top of it?

Thanks Francis! Nice to hear that it worked for someone else. :)

Minkis don't come with inserts so you would need to buy some, unless you are buying pre-loved, someone might include some for you
