I use tights made of wool. They are a bit expensive, but they are nice and warm and the are not as tight as cheap cotton tights.

Ooh Lilly has leaked in tights a couple of times, I never realised they are more likely to leak if they have tights on.

OK thick question alert, but why is that? I don't understand why they are more likely to leak in tights any more than they are in trousers etc?

Rachel, I assume it's because tights are close fitting over the nappy, and it's the contact which causes the wicking.

123Princessammie, I've got a couple of pairs of cheap leg warmers you could have FFP - they aren't Babylegs branded ones, but they do the job :wink:

Alternatively, PM if you want the details of the seller on ebay that I bought them from - they came from China so took a little while to come, but they were cheap (I think 5 pairs for about £6) and they work fine!
