Does anyone know if the soy fabric is rather slow to absorb liquids? Just trying to understand how some people have got on OK with them (UD NN in soy french terry) not even being pre-washed, and others only washing once or so, but having washed/dried mine several times, I'm still getting problems!
I know Benjamin does empty his bladder very
forcibly - rather like a fire hydrant!
(and he drinks a lot, so lots of liquid needs to go somewhere quickly). Having said that, he had a fairly low output night last night and we didn't end up with a wet bed (though I'd added a bit of bamboo terry square and a cotton flannel just to help it along until I knew how the soy fabric would work). However, he woke up at about 7am this morning and was sitting on my bed when he did a wee - and seems it came right out - wet sleeping bag and a puddle on my bed!
It *certainly* didn't come from any gaps on the legs, as there is a perfect fit there - very snug. ............. So, this is a new one for me - wee escaping in large quantities, while there is no gap for it to come from, and half of the nappy is still dry
Any ideas??? Certainly fabrics like ordinary cotton (Cotton Tots) always
absorb very quickly from him and will soak from front to back - whereas, I have previously had problems where it seemed bamboo was only wanting to be wet at one end and not move along through the whole nappy. So like it gets a bit water-logged or something??
So, using the fleece lined cotton Bumbles seemed ideal for a while...but guessing he's lost weight in his legs (got taller & slimmer) so they started having a big gap around the thighs and leaking. Hence, my quest for a new/different/reliable night nappy!
If only he'd potty train....
