Ok, so I've had huge problems with getting any nappies to last Bella any reasonable length of time and had resigned myself to changing her every 2 hours.
Well today couldn't have been more different.
Her night nappy was quite wet, but not soaked. It was a Hollow Oak Night Nappy with 2 Little Lamb bamboo night boosters and another hemp booster in, covered by her Addicted 2 Ewe crops. So that was nice - no leaks
But I'm not counting my chickens and will continue to uber boost her night nappies for a while.
Okay, so onto the first nappy of the day. A medium Dunk n Fluff, covered with a Pixie Knits soaker and a pair of Droopy Drawers longies. This went on about 9.15am and came off at about 1.30pm, so 4.5 hours. It was wet all over, but not saturated. Probably on a little longer than it should have been, but we were in town and she really
didn't want her nappy changed. So I decided to do it when we got home.
She was changed into a large Jimmy Riddles, with just the DD longies over the top - as the soaker was a bit wet from the previous nappy. Not bad, just a bit damp-ish. And then she went for a nap at 2pm. Anyway, I checked it after her nap (she didn't get up until 4.30pm) and it was completely dry, absolutely nothing in it at all. So I left it. I've just changed it (so it was on for 5.5 hours this time
) and it was damp through the wet-zone, but not really what I would call wet. Certainly not as wet as I would expect from her.
I've now put her into another large JR (although this one is much smaller than the other one) to last until bed time.
I can't beleive she's only needed 2 nappies today (I think the other one would have lasted her until bedtime!). I'm taking this as a sign of bladder awareness and am going to try potty training with her again this week. I bought a Dora the Exploerer book on potty training to try to explain to her (she loves Dora).
Dunno why I am writing this. I think I just needed to get it all down as I am so surprised! I know part of it is she hasn't had as much to drink today - she's had 3 TT cups at home and a carton of 5 alive in town - but she is drinking more milk atm. Maybe the milk makes her pee less? I dunno.
