First night in cloth tonight - update :)

Postby Lynni » Sat Nov 07, 2009 6:22 pm

Hello :idea:

Going to try cloth for the first time overnight but I'm not entirely sure I know what I'm doing :oops: We have a wool soaker and fitteds, the fitteds are all preloved - Bedbug, puddlekins night nappy and 2 popolini's (I think). I have some long hemp inserts, do I put that in the nappy or outside in between nappy and soaker? How many to be on the safe side? Can she still wear her vest or will that cause wicking? It's so cold here tonight :-?

Oooh it's exciting but I feel quite nervous as well! Would be fab if we could get rid of sposies altogether

I would go with the puddlekins, inside it put a hemp insert and on top of that put a fleece liner so thats what is touching your lo's bottom. Put on the soaker, and if possible I would leave the vest unpoppered, then pop on the pjs over the top.

Good luck with it :D

I agree ith Sadie, but if you have a small cotton or even MF insert to put on top of the hemp, that would work a bit better as it would soak the urine up quickly then release it to the hemp, which is slower to absorb liquid.

Ah yes, being out of cloth for a while it didnt dawn on me that the hemp wouldnt absorb as quickly :doh: Even a cotton flannel would help absorb it quicker.

Well she took a while to settle and luckily I read your replies before she fell asleep so I rearranged the layers!! Starting from the top a fleece liner, cotton terry motherease booster/insert, p'dessous (sp?) insert, the insert that came with the nappy which I think is hemp and finally the nappy itself :giggle: and the nappy garden soaker holding it all together.... vest pulled down and sleepsuit. Her back and bum appeared to be flat to the mattress so hopefully she isnt too uncomfortable though she weighed about 7lb heavier than she does normally!

Fc it all works, Dh is breaking out in a cold sweat now that he's gonna have one of these to do himself at some point :hohoho:
