Help!

Postby emmavmorgan » Sat May 01, 2010 6:28 am

My 18 mth old Ds is very tall and very very skinny! I am having an absolute nightmare with his wraps, whichever nappy he has on and whichever wrap he ends up with a gap a the top that his trouser waist band folds down it and ends up wet through :x Can anyone suggest anything I have BB, WN, LL, UD large wraps as well as some fleece soakers and they are all the same. he does have wool but its already 25 degrees here and his shorties are sticking to his poor little legs and he has heat rash :-? I sold all his pockets as he was out weeing them.
Thanks
Emma

What about getting some interlock shorts made with an elastic waistband?
The only wraps we use are airflows but i have just bought a nature babies one to try.

I really liked shorty-style PUL wraps before we switched to PUL - Stacinators are the best known (their So Simple wraps) but there are loads of French WAHMs who make much nicer ones :mrgreen:. They usually have quite a high rise and fleece cuffs/waistband... like these:

My other suggestion would be wool soakers, you might find some preloved with a nice high rise or could have them custom-made to his measurements - they might be cooler than wool shorties? Or you could try fleece shorties, maybe a kind that doesn't have an internal soaker (Pumpkin Pants? not sure :oops:) so they aren't too thick/sweaty?

My son is tall and skinny and I found Thirsties wraps to be a great fit on him, Nature Babies were also good!

I have thought of wool soakers but we spend so much time at the beach I don't fancy picking sand and dry seaweed out of them all the time :hohoho: I like the soakers with the poppers that would mean I could get the waist small enough and the bum big enough :hohoho:

snugglebots makes side snap fleece and interlock soakers, maybe they would work for you

I was also going to say Thirsties, the centre bit on the front is elasticated so it is actually designed to keep clothes away from the nappy, they work fab on my LO who is very long indeed (91st centile). Kittykins is the UK stockist & have a huge range of colours in both the original & duo wraps.

Another vote for Thirsties here too.

Kittykins aren't the only UK stockist :wink: I have a load more sat in customs right now.
