Another vote for wool or fleece covers and also Side snapping nappies/wraps as you an adjust it so much better.

Also if your DDs bits are wet try using a fleece liner in as it is a stay dry layer :) x

i use tots with wool quite successfully, i got a gazlillion of them and love them to bits. obviously makes sure the inner bits are folded right in the wet zone, but def give wool a try, i thought it sounded like a whole heap of hassle at first but once i got into it, it's actually really easy to use, look after and even make! we def find this works better for us, t isn't always a heavy wetter but he has his moments of peeing for england, we've just discovered wool interlock too, which is totally yummy imo

Another wool/fleece convert here :giggle: ... they're so much prettier than "normal" trousers, and will solve all your problems with wraps leaving red marks. If you don't want to go that route though I highly recommend PUL shorties (like Stacinators or, better if you can find them, Lovebums).

I second using fleece or minkee liners too, DD is all right without them during the day but overnight she absolutely has to have one in or she gets horribly red.

I use pockets WeeNotions Side Snap with petits dessous inserts they are the only inserts i like, i use ittis but with the extra bamboo mini booster. Now these are my faves BUT i still change every 2 hours anyway. doesnt bother me at all. I have only just got into fitteds so cant really advise but overnight i use night nappies and wool. I stopped using pul wraps because of the red marks, never get them with wool. Love snugglebots fleece wraps too. It took me ages to figure out what worked well and they go through stages too. We used to use bamboozles and even great for overnight but then she started out peeing them so had to switch.
