Perhaps they need stripping?
Also I wouldn't trust an itti on a heavy wetter for more than an hour and a half!

Over the age of two I'd say flooding nappies means they're close to or ready to potty train...

Yep I'd boost with an EP hemp too...

Also does she drink squash or just milk and water?

IF she's drinking juice/squash water it down way more, and if you can just switch to plain water and she should drink enough to keep hydrated but not guzzle if that makes sense?

I think she is. I think she has been for a while, but I've not wanted to start with all the upheaval she's had lately. Now that's finished and she's getting over croup, I think it might be time to bite the bullet. Eeek!

Sorry for hijacking. :oops:

Not at all- great to hear all these things!!

Her Itti wouldn't even last that!! lol!! Think i'm gonna give in & sell my CT that never gets used.....

It's mainly water & milk- she has to have some juice as she suffers with constipation which is why we have to get her to drink lots.... :(

Do think it could be to do with teeth though- she's just got 4 molars through & i can see 4 more teeth on the gums!! :shock:

ETA: When you say you emailed Emma with weights, do you mean of a wet nappy? That's what I did.


Have some hemp & bamboo fleece here so might have a go at layering & making a few boosters..... Leg gape would def be something i keep an eye on as she's teeny!!

Yep emailed Ems with the weights of the nappy....
