Thats a good idea - hadn't thought of that - Would it still be breathable with all that on? I do have a couple of large stacinators which are way too small in the rise (have never tried them on but can see that from looking at them.) I could maybe do that with these if they will fit round her waist. Or I could try it with the popolini, its just that as it is bigger it might be too big for the longies to go over the top, as they are only just fitting her too.

You could ask UD if they have considered an XL pattern for the UDNN and/or fleece wraps? Bamboo Toddlease are reduced at Treehuggermums but I don't know how they are on heavy wetters? I have heard using 2 nappies get suggested for some heavy wetters - maybe an XL over the UDNN?
Hmm, I did try a large bumhugger a few months ago and it wasn't even near absorbant enough for nights - but maybe an EL would be more absorbant?
I thought about asking UD to make me a big one if they could, but I have spent so much money recently, I am not sure if I could afford one! And I would need about 4 to use full time! And my larges are all pretty much new, but I am guessing I would loose quite a bit if I sold them now, especially as one of the inserts has a hole in
(although I think that is the medium anyway). I had planned to keep them for Talia, but then I was thinking they would last Elouise till potty training and then Talia would probably be big enough for them.

I'd suggest trying one or two hemp boosters between the nappy and a fleece wrap - not as good as wool but more breathable than PUL. I think you can get Tots Bots in size 3. Or perhaps try a wool cover like a couche cover? I also fold the nighttime booster in half to the front of the nappy, as that's Jasmine's wet zone.
So are flutterby nights more absorbant then? Not that I could afford one really. What are they like?
I hadn't thought about folding the night booster like that, will give it a try.
With my last UD order, I did order some french soy inserts - maybe these would work as boosting in the NN? I haven't seen them yet so not sure what they are like. This is before she suddenly decided to double in size! Lol. Silly thing is, I also have another large UDNN on the way!
One thing I do want to try and do, but have no idea how to go about it, is reducing her milk in take at night, but I have no idea how! I am sure this is to blame, as she does drink a lot of milk and has had more the last few weeks because a) she hasn't been eating much due to back teeth coming through, she has chipped her front tooth falling over, has a cold AND keeps being woken up by a screaming newborn! LOL. She won't go to sleep though without a bottle of milk (I know its a really bad habit but still!). Maybe cutting down the milk is a more appropriate thing to be focussing on.
