Bamboo xs sandies and wool?

Postby angiepangie2809 » Mon Feb 21, 2011 9:22 pm

Hi. Most of my newborn stash is made up of bamboo xs sandies...have got other nappies and prefolds but the xs sandies make up a big bulk of my stash....I've got 18 of them. Now I used sandies with ethan when he was little but they was cotton and I didn't start him in cloth until he was about 4/6 weeks old and he was mainly in small sandies then. I decided I prefered bamboo nappies so that's why bubs stash is mainly bamboo but I am a bit worried. The xs bamboo sandies look realy thin, like they won't realy be absorbant. (They are all brand new by the way!), I love how thin they are in one way but am concerned that bubs will pee through them. Also has anyone used xs bamboo sandies under wool? If so did they perform well or did everything just get soggy? Also what weight was your Lo when they stopped fitting in the xs size? I hardly have any small nappies yet apart from 9 new size 1 LL's and some prefolds and I've decided I will make do with those for a week or two when he outgrows his xs sizes so I can sell all the teeny ones on to fund more small nappies. Money is tight now so I've got to be careful what I buy now! Any info would be greatly appreciated:-)

I have one and tbh i dont really like it :oops: The XS fits Darcie nicely now that her cord is off (before she lost her cosrd it sat on it so i didnt use it...) but i dont find them very absorbant at all...i can use it fine under wool but i tend to boost it...

Sorry thats probably not what you want to hear and im sure there are alot of people who get on with them :hug:

Thanks hun. Gaaaaaah! Think I might need to get some little lamb size 1 boosters in ready which I didn't want to have to pay out for but looks like I will have no choice! :-( failing that or they will just have to get used under my pul wraps! Thanks again x

Yes exactly the same here :-? I had to boost & boost to stop the nappy leaking or ending up with damp patches on the moses basket/crib and babygros.
Our Little Lambs fit from about a week old, they were a bit big but did the job well

:( :hug: Get a load of LL bamboo boosters and use them. I used them with Katie but didn't use wool over them and found them ok so you never know, hopefully they'll be ok. If not you can always get some cheap bamboo terries and/or prefolds to try instead.
