Morning...advice needed

Postby Laura_Carter » Tue Oct 20, 2009 6:55 am

Morning Ladies :idea:

I'm fairly new to the world of cloth, my LO is almost 10 weeks old and we use BG V3, Little Lamb Bamboo and Bamboozles during the day. I am guilty of still using spossies at night and wondered if you could advise me on a good night nappy please?

We don't get on well with Airflow or Rikki wraps, the elastic irrates Alejando's thighs :( I think he is also a heavy wetter.

I would love to use cloth at night so please help!

Thank you

Laura & Alejandro xx

Hi :idea:

Welcome to the board. Not very good with nappy advice sorry but there are plenty on here who will be able to help loads. There is also a night nappy board where you will find loads of info.

:idea: Welcome to CNT. I've moved this to the night nappy section as its more appropriate than general chat. :wink: Most of us use either wool or fleece at night as it is more breathable than PUL and IMO mre comfortable too. I only use wool over fitteds during the day too with the occasional pocket use. If your son is a heavy wetter you are better looking at a specific night nappy rather than trying to boost a daytime one. I use Flutterby Night nappies on my DD although they are hard to get hold of. My son wears a Standard Minki with lots of stuffing overnight. Others use bedbugs, WeeNotions Night Notions, Upsy Daisy night nappies, huggles, bamboo baby beehinds to name a few.

At 10 weeks wie were either changing in the night or using a disposable...We started using a dedicated night nappy at around 4.5months so it hasnt been that long. We use bedbugs and have a couple of weenotions night notions coming to us to try out too :)

Good luck and congrats on your little one :wine: :hug:

Hi. I also didn't start using night nappies until I didn't have to change them during the night. To begin with I changed them at the 10pm dream feed - but soon stoped that too! I've found huggles to be a good nappy to start with. There's plenty of room to add more booster if needed and the size small is big! So there's plenty of growing room which is important when thery are little. They do take a while to dry so you'd probably need 3. As a new user of cloth too its easy to get 'worried' about night nappies but to be honest there's nothing to it! And as long as you add plenty of boosting not much can go wrong. I started over cautious and added loads of boosters rather than start with nothing and add. So I have no idea if they really need it. Amanda

thanks, Alex must be getting on for 14lb! my little chunk!

Do you think it's worth buying pre-loved? or perhaps just one nappy to start with?

deffinatly buy pre-loved to try things out, it has saved me a fortune becuase inevitably there are some things you wont like and then you havent spent a fortune :wink:

:idea: Welcome
We use bamboo baby beehinds and bamboo little lambs on Gracie over night, ion the bbh's I had a really small bamboo booster and in the ll's I add a bamboo terry square and an easy peasy hemp insert and it works great overnight. I also didn't start using night nappies until later on (about 5 months :oops: ) cos I wasn't brave enough, Gracie started sleeping through at 5 weeks so we really should have started then, ah well.
Buying pre-loved is def the best thing to do, you get to try out different kinds with out paying full price. x
