Night nappies and soakers and 1st night in cloth

Postby banana » Sat Nov 28, 2009 10:07 pm

Hi all

Me again!! When i tried the xl fleece soakers i brought over the night nappies they fitted pretty well all around apart from the waist. It is very baggy. Is this how it is suppossed to be or should it be fitted around the waist?

I put Jude in wn fleece wrap instead. Its his first night trial in cloth. He is wearing fluffle and wn fleece wrap. Hope all goes well. Im very worried about it!! :roll:

some of Gracies soakers are loose on the waist and it is fine (fleece ones)
Good luck with your first night in cloth, did you boost the fluffle?

I have found fleece can gape on the waist but hasn;t affected performance - am getting some pumpkin pants fleece soakers/longies in with elastic in to see if it makes a difference.

I am amazed by fleece after years of struggling with PUL>

:x Jude has very sore legs from the elastic in his fleece wee notions wrap i put him in last night and he was wet through his vest and babygro in the morning.

What do i try next. I didn't boost the fluffle apart from booster already in it. It was only wet at the front in the morning but clothes all wet.

Help Pleeeeease!!!

How old is your LO? this happened the first time we use wool as Austin didn't move much in the night so it was just pressure wicking right through, we're using PUL atm and bedbugs so maybe try extra boosting with a fluffle (we can't even manage a couple of hours in the day with one) and a different wrap. Unfortunately it is trial and error. Good luck though and I hope you find the right combo soon

I would think that a fluffle isn't really suitable for nights, they are microfibe which squishes the wee out when it get wet. The best night nappy we use are bamboo babybeehinds which only need a slight bit of boosting.
Also make sure his sleepsuit isn't too tight, what sort of vest do you use? Gracie just wears non poppered ones but if you are using poppered ones just leave it undone

Personally I would go with the bedbugt and ee how you get on, I think they are quite heavy duty so if it is stll quite dry at the end of the night it should help to establish how heavy a wetter your dealing with
