We had a heavy wetter who had reflux & so she used to BF for comfort every hour through the night. We used Bububebe fitteds with wool soakers/longies & found them really good. As she got older, we needed to boost with a flip insert. By the time she was 18 months old, we needed a Bububebe with flip insert, then a wool soaker & finally a pair of fleece PJ's over the top of the soaker. I tried lots of other nappies but the Bububebe's worked best for us.

@cath we used boosted bububebes until 15 weeks but definitely wouldn't get them to last more than 6 hours atm. He has a flutterby fluff on with the trifold insert doubled over plus 3 boosters tonight but has PUL rather than wool as none of my medium soakers will fit over the large bum!

We use HL BB+ and LGN, but Aubrey sleeps 12 hours and only wakes once for a feed at 5.30am, then I change him after his next feed about 7.30am. When he was waking/feeding 2 hourly in the early weeks I used to add an EP Hemp insert folded in two at the front outside the nappy and under wool. I also put a prefold under his bum incase of leaks, but they are rare now.

well his well boosted ff was wet but no leaks when he decided to poo at 4! He's not pooed at night ever! He's actually slept for 3 hours woohoo! Unfortunately as soon as he is in a light sleep he rolls onto his tummy.If he turned his head I'd leave him but he buries his face in the mattress and then moans so I am not getting much sleep!
