Hi there, Im pretty new to cloth nappies and new to this forum, but im really keen to get into it all as I know the benefits of cloth are good all round.
I requested a trial pack from my council (surrey) and got a shaped tots bots nappy (made of terry like material with an attached booster) a naturebabies stuffable, a motherese one size, a prefold nappy, and a couple of wraps (motherese) and boosters and liners. I first tried the stuffable with a booster and liner. It was really bulky on my 8m old ndaughter and kept slipping down dispite being on the tightest setting. When I took it off (it leaked), the booster was a bit crunpled inside and the liner was crumpled too. My daughters bottom looked rubbed and sore, and it had only been on for about an hour. I also tried the tots bots. This was better, but still really bulky, I wouldnt have been able to get clothes on her!What did I do wrong? I wondered if these trial packs are older nappies and if the newer ones would be better?
I need held, dont want to give up before ive even started!! Any advice?
