I have always found pamper to be rubbish and my friend has had 4 burst on her recently :puke: We always used Tesco own brand (not the value ones) and they have always been reliable. Boots eco sposies are also good but not sure what size they go up to :-?

And Isabelle's nappies really really stink of ammonia in the mornings and they're washed the same as Grace's and hers are fine... :?

That makes perfect sense now thinking about it as when Evie was younger and in day cloth we never got the rashes like we did later with just night nappies. She never gets sore in disps ever so think i just have to accept that we stay the way we've been doing and not worry about it too much!! :oops:


I think that's a sensible decision. Out of interest what disps to you use? On the odd occasion where Ryan wears disps when he goes to work with DH we get major leaks. :-?


I use Asdas own, the ones we have at the moment are Asdas little angels action fit and we have no leaks at all, very good on price too.

IF they wet at the same time every night then sure you'll avoid a wet bed by emptying the bladder but that's not really night dry is it...

Also it is NOT recommended to restrict drinks over several hours before bed - sure in the hour before bed but no more...

Oh and Isabelle gets very thirsty at bedtime and it would be extremely cruel to deny her quenching her thirst!


WSS! My eldest son tyler whos 8 has only just stopped wetting the bed. And I tried the lifting and it made no difference at all. just wore me out trying to lift an 8 year old! And resticting dri nks can result in an infection which defeats the object really. Los can be normal and wet the bed up till age 7. thats when the docs will help out but not before then. Nic, don't stress about using disps once a day, you used cloth till now so I think we all can forgive you :wink: And no one wants evie to be sore now do we? :D I recommend Tescos own in the green pack. Work well for us and thats with dans mega explosive bottom right now :puke:
