I don't think the absorbancy was enough. Imogen woke at about 2 and I changed her as it already felt like it was wetting through.

I have a WNNN to try too so will give that a go. I think I need to get back into the boosting thing as I've not been using fitteds much at all for a while so I need to boost enough and in the right places - I shouldn't have stopped using them at night and then I'd be alright :roll:

Summer has started soaking her bedbugs, I don't think they are that absorbent in all fairness, I know alot of people have had issues with them! WNNN should be better, they are about the only thing working for her at the mo!

I bought 2 new ones in a co-op last year and pre-washed them 5 times each. Bella completely satuarated them each time they were worn. I don't think they are very absorbant at all, and I think that is down to the high MF content in the nappy and the boosters.

WNNN (in both old and new style) are very absorbant. We had fit issues with the older ones as we had to boost, which distorted the pocket and made it gape around the legs. The new style seems to be more absorbant than the old, but will probably need something adding to it as well as they have been coming off soaking too recently.

Thanks Hanna and Tanya - I will give the WNNN a go and see how that works, probably not tonight though :oops:

The first Dreamscape we had I sold on as it wasn't absorbent enough but in the co-op I got one with an organic cotton core and it is much better, I do add a small oval hemp booster to it but it isn't as much as say an ep booster. After the new year I am ordering another but am going to go for all bamboo.

I do agree about the new vesion of the WNNN though, they are great and much better than the older version, Tory kindly lent us one with a minkee outer to try and it wasn't even damp on the outside in the morning xx
