I like Totsbots Stretchies (I like the old style Bamboozles too) and bamboo Little Lambs are fab, you can always pick them up quite cheaply on here too. Motherease Sandys are good although being quite slim I don't think they are quite as absorbent as some of the others so would probably need quite a bit of boosting for a heavy wetter?

^wss - you could just invest in some super inserts to boost the tots you have. I've seen a few zorb inserts around recently.

I also like totsbots stretchies. I definitely find them trimmer than the originals and softer too ( I don't tumble anything!)

I'd go for boosters if you're hoping to PT soon rather than splashing out on complete new nappies. Either Pd or the EP hemp ones seem to be popular with people with heavy wetters, plus that way you'd get around 10 for £20-£40 new or cheaper if you can get some pre-loved. :wink:

I guess it depends how long you'd like the nappy to last for and how heavy a wetter he is.
The bamboo Totsbots (Bamboozle) that we have doesn't last much longer than the cotton Totsbots, with Erin - max 1hr on cotton with no extra inserts other than the sewn in one and 1-1.5hrs on the Bamboozle with just the one popper inserts. To get either to last 2-3hrs, I need to add an additional 2 boosters :-?
I also found the same with the Lil Lambs as they're a similar design to the cotton Tots Bots with the sewn in insert and again I need to boost these to get them to last 2-3hrs.
I can comment on the Motherease Bamboo sandies/onesize as I've not used them (though do own a bamboo onesize :oops: It just always looked to gapey on Erin's legs to encourage me to use it :giggle: )
Have you tried the bamboo Behinds? They last a bit longer than the Tots on a single insert (though do come with 2 as standard) and are pretty slim fitting.
Otherwise, I'd recommend the Little Comfort nappies. They're about as bulky as the Totsbots, not quite as high in the rise as a Bamboozle but with better waist adjustment, and with both of the boosters poppered in, will last Erin at least 3hrs :mrgreen:
Drop me a PM if you wanted me to return the favour of a loan on any of the above :wink:
