I think it's starting / Minki YoYo Advice?

Postby dawnsmummy » Sun Jul 25, 2010 7:42 pm

Dawn's been up 3 times since 7pm asking for the potty :( She keeps asking for a "Pooh" or "Pull up" nappy too. I think our days in cloth are rapidly coming to an end :cry:


ETA: What is the sizing like on the Minki YoYos? I don't know if Dawn would need the Large or XL.....

Minki yoyos are huge if I remember correctly. To be honest I hated them :giggle:

I tried the standard ones and the slinki ones for Lucas and none of them fitted him well or even at all!

Really? Crap :(
I really dont want to have to go back to disps, but she keeps asking for pull ups. Gah....

Happy Heiny do a trainer pant with a pocket so you stuff yourself... Maybe I could try one of those.

I preferred the happy heiny ones!

have you looked at 'child incontinence' pants rather than pull up nappies? (basically very absorbant knickers)

like these:

or these (seems these ones can be boosted with additional pads, says disposable pads in the listing but we know better than that :wink: :giggle: ):

Make them hun, like the ones i did alesha a while ago, they looked exactly like pants, and where the same shape, but had PUL hidden inside and pocket for stuffing, and then had snaps on the sides
maybe then you could make them in her fav character print so she more than likely to wear them xx

I would but I've discovered I hate sewing PUL. I have a huge sheet of the stuff and I hate it :oops:

So do i lol, but because its inside two layers (outter character layer and inner layer i used scraps of jersey cause she would feel when wet then) it wasnt hard to sew, used FOE around the edges too as its easy and quick :giggle:
