WNNN outer fabrics

Postby VICKERSHOUSE » Tue Mar 02, 2010 11:22 am

Ok. so i am trying to get back into night nappies, and want to try a WeeNotions.

Has anybody noticed any difference to the absorbancy and fit depending on what outer fabric is used?

We love our Northern Lights and have cotton, bamboo velour, cotton velour and no outer ones. Least absobant is the one with no outer, most absorbant bamboo velour :-?

So how about minki or jersey outers?

Any help or advice gratefully received :D

I'll be watching this post with interest too. I have one with a cotton jersey print outer and it's good for Kerr but I'm going to get some more and can't make up my mind what to get :-?

Minkee doesn't really have any absorbing properties. The Bamboo velour outer ones will no doubt be the most absorbent as the outer fabric acts as an additional absorbing layer. :)

I have 2 minky outers, 2 cotton outers and a BOV outer night notions and the minky ones are the only ones that are bone dry on the outside every morning (well when they are used over night anyway :giggle: ) I love them :)

Noah has cotton, jersey and OBV outers and the latter two have more stretch to them compared with the cotton one. So we get a better fit with those. I've not really noticed any real difference in the absorbancy though.

i like the minkee outer ones, on a warm night we use them wrap free and they're always dry outside.x

We have plain bamboo outer ones and I can't really fault the absorbancy, we just have a problem with fit. I was tempted to try a BOV outer one, but as the fit is so bad, I'm just going to get rid of the ones I have.
