Tights causing nappies to leak *help please*

Postby 123princesssammie » Fri Apr 16, 2010 7:08 pm

Am sick of seeing alesha in trousers but whenever she wears skirts/dresses with tights they seem to cause her to leak even her normally absolutely leakproof BG's!

And leggings just dont suit her cause she has tiny ankles and they just look silly

Any reason why? does anyone else get this?

I do have a pair of babylegs and i no this would be a solution but cant afford to get anymore xx

It's compression wicking. I rarely use tights as we do get it occasionally. I prefer leg warmers. It might help if you go up a size so the tights are a bit bigger but that involves spending more money too. :-?

She has a couple paris that are too big (she till in 6-12months :giggle: ) but they just kept falling down and tripping her up :roll: , put her vest over the tights but leaked again, guessing by the compression x

Have the tights got a single seam up the middle in the back? or do thay have a larger bum space with a double seam?

I found the single seam ones caused leaking and the ones with the extra bum room and the double seam didn't!

Bigger tights didn't work because they just ended up too long in the leg and the heel of the foot almost reached the knees :giggle:

double seam ones work better for us...

Perhaps you just need to boost more heavily when she's wearing tights?

We gave up tights really early on for this reason - maybe you could put up a wanted for cheap and/or Treecycled leggings? People here are really generous, in my experience :wink:

Yep we don't use tights either.
I use leg warmers and socks if she's in a skirt.
