Help me find the nappy I need!

Postby Bobble Boy's Mum » Sun Nov 01, 2009 2:09 pm

Providing he's strong enough Findlay will be going into hospital on November 16th for open surgery and also having a feeding tube fitted in his stomach. Due to this for the time he's in intensive care we don't want to be moving him too much so I am planning on putting him in night nappies however my current ones are too high in the rise for where his G Tube will be (about an inch or so above his belly button).

Does anyone know of any night nappies or super absorbant nappies that have got about a 15 inch rise? Or that might be a bit higher in the rise but have got a popper down section like the small WNNL have?

I will drop Weenotions an email but obviously the chances of managing to get anything made in time to be able to prewash them a couple of times before he will go into hospital are pretty non existent which is why I was wondering if anyone knew of anything that I am likely to be able to find in stock anywhere?

Thanks ever so much xx

Hya hun,
Dunk and fluff have a low rise imo...i think there are some small ones for sale on the classifieds from the recent co-op...we have a medium and its well bellow kierens belly button so the smalls could be good, they are also fab for absorbancy...

FC he is strong enough hun!! I was gonna suggest newborn nappies with the umblical cut out but they wont be absorbant enough!!

We've got a Cloth Canoe night nappy that has a much lower rise than any of our other night nappies, No idea about sizing though I'm afraid, I bought ours pre-loved

Thanks for the suggestions so far. I've have a look in the classifieds and see if I can find any DnF or BBH for sale :D

If you have any Nappi Nippa fastening nappy, you could always roll or fold the front over but keep the back high, and secure in place with the Nippa.
