LL size 3 for toddler night nappy?

Postby emmab16 » Tue Apr 10, 2012 4:13 pm

Hi everyone

my son is 3 1/2 & I'm looking to get him back into cloth at night as seem to be getting through so many pull ups. He's quite skinny & around 35lbs so not big for his age, still in 2 - 3 year trousers.
Do you think a little lamb size 3 cotton would be any good? How much boosting do you think I'd need to add? (the pull ups are pretty much soaked when he gets up but then I don't think they're that absorbent)

thanks
Emma

Humm not sure about cotton, I used to use a boosted bamboo one on G and it was fine x

only reason I was thinkign cotton rather than bamboo was drying time - did you find it an issue?

I have those things that clip on the radiator, means the nappy is near the radiator without being close enough to go crunchy :) Dried within a day if the heating is on.

bamboo does take longer to dry but preforms far better x

There is a chance that the bamboo will last all night but not cotton unless your dc is a very very light wetter. For boosting, try easy peasy hemps & the little lamb bamboo boosters

We used cotton when my daughter was newborn and she regularly out peed them. Bamboo should last with additional bamboo booster and hemp. Little lamb do fantastic prices on just nappy packs. Hope this helps x
