If you are confident his woollies are lanolised enough, I would try something possibly more absorbent :-?


Frances has lent me a couple of BBH but I can't get those to go past 4am :( , maybe if I put his night nappy on at the 11pm feed :-?

I had to boost a BBH when Iris was still tiny; I used just an EP booster. I've found that you can boost between nappy and wool like you would between nappy and wrap. Much more fiddly, but it can be done (Iris thighs are very skinny and if I try to boost in the nappy, it often leads to leg gapes).

BBH are our main NN at the moment and with just a small bamboo booster they work great over night, they range from hardly damp to quite damp in the morning but never wet. x

When Bella was tiny, we used Quck Flips as our night nappies, with boosting under the flaps. She could easily outwee a bbh, even without night feeds.

I am using (and really liking) MEOS bamboo. I boost under the pop in booster with an EP hemp and a smaller bamboo. Its working well for us. I am mostly using a PUL wrap outside though.

I used a WNNN the other day under her soaker and it was wet.

I have a daughter with massive thighs though and the MEOS is almost at its biggest :shock: Hope they slim down and don;t get any bigger or I'm not sure what I'll do.

We find that a Fluffle stuffed with PD bamboo and then EP hemp between the nappy and wrap works for Findlay overnight (and he has 288ml of milk between bed at 7pm and getting up at 7am). Upsy Daisy soy night nappies are good although you might need to boost them with an EP hemp.

Right i bit the bullet last night and put Kieren in a bedbug kindley lent from Emma (ems) and put an EP hemp under the soakers and although he woke up and poo'd at 5.30am...it was dry...so he went from6.30pm till 5.30am and the outside was just a tiny bit damp! :mrgreen:
