Nappies and backpack carriers

Postby Fayesmum » Thu May 13, 2010 9:28 am

Dh wants to take Faye out for the day during this walk with his dad & brother. She'll be on his back, in the backpack we've got. Do I boost her nappies more than I would to stop compression wicking? I don't boost at all during the day, just use the inners that come with the nappy and a liner. He's suggested he uses disposables so he isn't carrying wet nappies, but I don't see how that would make any difference since they're walking off road, he won't be coming across bins to put them in.

Hes hoping to take her on the last day if its not raining, the last leg isn't too far and I'll be picking them both up so can always take a nappy with me and change her in the car

We have a mix of WN northern lights, goodmamas, bubebe (sp), Flutterby. The WN are bamboo inners

I would go with Bamboo as they will last better for absorbancy

What about wearing wool over the nappies? We find that T gets terrible wicking from his jumperoo (obviously!), but in wool he is fine xx

That may help but there is a possibility that wicking will be worse with wool if they are still for long periods of time. Unless I used two layers (so a wool soaker and a skirtie)when Katie was in the sling for long periods if time I would get a wet back. :puke:.

I would use your most absorbent nappies with a small booster. Or maybe even a pocket with wool or fleece over the top?

Ok thanks :wink: I would have thought wool would make things worse like Louise said? I can send her in her longies and she has loose fitting jogging bottom type trousers that I could get a soaker under.... Would a good combo be to use WNNL and wool? I have some puddlekins bamboo boosters as well, that I could pop in

ETA I only have 3 pockets, so would have to send something else.... Also have babybehinds that could work, they do well at lunch time for her sleep, virtually dry on the outside when I take them off 2.5 hrs later
