Wish he would pt soon

Postby Shaunie » Sun Apr 17, 2011 7:38 pm

I've been having trouble getting Isaac's nappies to fit properly for ages. He's very tall and a bit of a chunk so not much fits him. His HR WN's slide down on him & his BB's not much better. Also, he's getting red marks from the snaps being too tight but we get leg gape on the loosest one :( . He's also getting a red rash on his inner thigh from where his nappy slides down and is chafing a bit I think. Thankfully it does not bother him at all.

It's way too late to change our stash but I was wondering how bulky the toddler HL AI2's are and if it might be worth trying one until we pt?

Just needed to moan about it I think :oops:

Don't have problems about nappies fitting as Christopher is a skinny 27lb and only just going into 18-24 months clothes but I do wish that he'd take it upon himself to use the potty. We did 4 days at the end of Feb in pants with only 5 accidents across all 4 days but he now either "doesn't like the potty", "doesn't like to wee wee" or "wants a nappy" and screams until he gets a nappy back, holds his wee for 2-3+ hrs and if I refuse the nappy he now wees on the carpet! Joy! The pottys are no all in the garage as i've had enough!

Is he a HW? If so HL AI2 may not be a good idea as I know that a lot of people who have used them have found them to leak. I only know of one person who could use them on her LO without having to use a wrap with them!!

I take it that applix pockets are no good to you? Max has always been a terror to fit snapped nappies onto and for this reason I've stuck with applix mainly - thankfully he doesn't try and undo them at the mo.

I don't like applix so we don't have any. The one we did have, Isaac used to open as soon as he realised it was applix. He's a fairly heavy wetter, random nappy flooding too. Perhaps I should just hang in there. I do think that perhaps applix nappies would fit him better now but one-size nappies don't fit him at all and they are all I can think of!

Do you not like fitteds? We use these for the main part as ds2 has chunky thighs and no waist :giggle: Far easier to adjust and more absorbent than pockets/aio's. I'm so glad ds2 hasn't worked out applix yet :giggle:

We don't have any fitteds Lisa. I tried them when he was about 1 but didn't get on with them. I do wish I had tried again though :(
