Blueberry Minki one size

Postby claireb » Tue Jul 01, 2008 9:40 pm

Just a few questions:
At what weight approximately did you start to use this nappy from? My baby is 10lb but it still looks like it could be big on him!
I have the ruby coloured one - do you know if this may run in the wash? Do I need to prewash it first, how many times?
Many thanks!!

I started using them at around 16lb or thereabouts!

the ruby doesn't run (at least mine never have), and I would pre-wash the nappy once (to get rid of any manufacturers residue etc), if you have the hemp insert then that will benefit for a couple of prewashes as hemp takes approx 10 washes to reach full absorbancy!

Have you used the poppers to make the nappy shorter to get a lower rise to fit better?

I have one and agree it looks huge so am leaving it for a while yet, Ben was 11lb 6oz on Monday, but they are o much bulkier than my other nappies

Thanks for your replies.
I haven't actually tried it on him yet! However, his bumgenius are pretty big on him so just presumed it would be bulky I guess. What about clothes, do you have problems fitting clothes over it? Thanks
