Can someone help??

Postby babygrowbelly » Wed Jan 06, 2010 7:32 pm

If I get a weenotions pocket nappy do i want micro-fleece or Minkee on the inside if my little boy is a heavy wetter? Would I need to get anything else aswell as this as in inserts or boosters or whatever (just learning about all the items needed at the moment :-? )

the inner is a personal preference, I prefer minkee as it stays soft, doesn't bobble or stain (cuddlesoft is the same only cheaper) As for inserts, yes you will need some, I like petite dessous bamboo on top of easy peasy hemp, that is a really good combo HTH xx

the fleece or minkee inner is the stay dry lining, I prefer minkee as it is softer than fleece

you will also need some inserts but can use any brand, i like blueberry combo inserts which are hemp and microfibre. check out the thread on different materials to give you some idea about absorbency viewtopic.php?f=23&t=15576

I always go for cuddlesoft, it's basically the same as minkee (doesn't show signs of wear or stains, like fleece does) but no extra charge :giggle:. I do think fleece keeps the bum slightly drier, though, if that's a concern for you - minkee/cuddlesoft is stay-dry, but not quite as stay-dry as fleece, IMO!

Thanks for the quick replies ladies!! :D

Now moving onto the inserts.... i know you have recommended other makes but if I am looking at them on the weenotions site (or trying to look for them) am I right in thinking they are not nappy liners? I cant find inserts only boosters?!

I think I will need a gin to continue my shopping......

WeeNotions haven't done inserts for a while since they changed the pattern for the pocket nappies hence why we all use different inserts for them. :wink: Sidesnap inserts have recently been added to the shop though here.

if you have a heavy wetter go for the 6 layers. Is this for the AI2?

I use greenkids bamboo inserts in my large WN pockets
