Tweedlebee and Tweedlebum fitteds

I know a few people have tried these, I was wondering how absorbent they are and what the soakers are like (pics would be fab if possible).

Thanks in advance :smile:

I know Tanya uses them and really likes them. Hopefully she will be along in a bit to go into details.

I got 2 from the co-op and liked them so much, I got 2 more - it helped a lot that I got a 15% discount code included in my co-op parcel.

Two soakers which snap together and can be used independently if needed. Not sure of the construction though. The top of the uppermost one is covered in minkee :)

Soakers in situ. They do NOT make the nappy bulky at all. I honestly don't know how long these nappies could last - we've had up to 5 hours so far (he fell asleep!) and even then it wasn't overly wet. He's not a huge wetter though. Moderate, I'd guess.

If you have any more questions, please ask :)

They are great. M is a moderate wetter and she lasts overnight in them with fleece over the top. If she is had a lot of milk before bedtime, I add an extra booster just in case, but haven't let us down yet.

Absolutely brilliant, they are my favourite ever fitted. Like Tanya I have also left them on for about 5 hours (also due to him falling asleep) and when I changed it the outer wasn't even wet. To be honest I am sometimes tempted not to bother putting a soaker/cover over the top! I think they would even last us overnight. Jake wees a LOT too.

ETA: this is ours: Image
I havent got any pics of the inner (and it's in the wash at the moment, but it's basically the same as Tanya's but in bamboo velour rather than minkee.
