UD NN - quick question!!

Postby sophie2198 » Wed Mar 25, 2009 4:29 pm

Hi all , have been trying to decide whether to order a UDNN for ages now , couldnt decide on what size to get - have that sorted now though! Then had to think what material id go for - decided on the french soy terry but went out of stock so had to wait for it to come back in.....and now its back in stock i keep wanting to order it but something is stopping me and im not sure what :-? i think im feel abit dubious about it being absorbant enough? It says in the description that it has 8 layers of absorbancy.....but this doesnt seem enough to me for a night nappy?? I know you can buy a booster to go with but that is still only another 2 layers making 10 layers in total?? H's FF is 9 layers and although not up to absorbancy yet i cant see it doing nearly 12 hours........also when H wears his WNNL's i fold both of the boosters over at front so making it 10 layers in total and this lasts about 5hours max (through nap time and school run) so again i cant see 11 hours doing all night...................

can anyone re-assure me please? Is the soy terry REALLY that absorbant that 10 layers is enough? I really dont want to be having to add extra boosting if i dont have to. I do use wool at night which i know definately helps...

WE have one and love it and it has only been washed about 4 times (I didn't pre-wash before using it first either). I fold the insert that comes with it in 4 (half then half again) and if I think Gracie has had more to drink that usual I will sometimes add an easy peasy to it also I don't popper it in. HTH. xx

I do exactly the same as Kirsty, i fold the flat insert in 4 instead of 3 and dont popper it in but i always add an easy peasy hemp just to be on the safe side :D

sam is a heavy wetter and i do the same trick with the nl :mrgreen:
i put the insert and booster in with a microfible fuzzi insert on top and it works great with wool over the top :D

I have ordered one and expecting it anyday now and praying it does the trick as currently we are leaking most nights! Somebody on another forum though is having big leaks by 2am but has only washed it a couple of times - could this be why?

I have a couple of the boosters but actually i never use them simply because i find them too long (tbh i didn't buy these when i bought the nappies so not sure how/ why i have them :-? :-? ) and i like the mix of the bamboo french terry and the easy peasy hemp. (i put the folded bamboo on top of the hemp and stuff it in the pocket)

Sorry i have the Bamboo French terry not the soy :oops: :oops:

I always use these under wool and have never had a leak yet and to be honest they aren't that wet on the outside in the morning when i take her longies off either :widesmile:

see now i dont know whether to go for the soy booster or not? without risking sounding 'cheap' :oops: the booster is an extra £2.50 and i dont really wanna spend that if i dont have to! :oops: :oops: I have plenty of hemparoo inserts though which are 6 layers so what if i just ordered the soy terry with normal insert it comes with and then used one of my own hemparoo inserts and not order an extra booster? £2.50 seems alot extra to pay for just a 2 layer booster :-?
