My LO is 9 months old and outpeeing Weenotions night notion nappies and puddlekins nappies, both of which I put 1 or 2 additional large bamboo boosters / a hemp booster or a small bamboo prefold between nappy and wrap! I can't fit a large prefold and the night nappy inside the wrap (I've tried) so not sure what would be best? Any suggestions? Was thinking a small hemp prefold might do the trick instead of bamboo one. Anyone else tried this?
What wraps are you using? Wool is probably your best option as it allows some evaporation and also lots of room to boost. Hemp is a great storage material, slow to absorbe but holds a lot so definitely worth trying.
Ok thanks I'll try hemp instead of bamboo. I just bought a lovely pair of Longies from Littlesez but been too worried to use them without a wrap incase I ruin them Do you really just put them straight over nappy without a wrap?
Yes , that's how they work. They will feel damp in the morning and then you just hang them up to air. I usually do it outside or near s window. If they smell you hand wash them gently with wool wash. Don't scrub them and make sure water is cool or Luke warm. every now and again they need 're lanolising. Wash them gently first. Prepare a bowl with a teaspoon of lanolin and a squirt of wool wash add boiling water so it all melts and then top up with cold so again make sure water is Luke warm. Soak your woollies. To dry squish them gently but don't ring them, roll them in a towel and dry flat
Any updates @Dancing mum Does your little one still feed in the night. I am watching this thread with interest as I would like to get Willow in to cloth at night. She usually feeds once in the night but if we left the same disposable on all night it would definitely leak.
