The big wet

Postby Rae » Wed Feb 13, 2008 9:29 am

Well we woke up this morning with a bit of wee on the pj's. I opened up the minki and the HH stuffin was saturated, as well as the ellas house hemp and the blueberry microfibre. It might be time to add even more hemp - but gees the nappy gets heavy with all that hemp (and that's before it gets wet). It's just amazing how she has gone from using a bumgenius overnight (with just the microfibre) to this in a few short months.

I'd skip the microfibre altogether Rae and just go with hemp topped with bamboo or cotton...

Amazing how they go from so little to needing so much though!!

I agree with Steph there, have just done that with Ryan as we were having problems with night nappies too and its made a huge difference. Have bought some great night time boosters from Babeco recently too.

Last night Kayleigh had a wee notions night nappy boosted with an extra hemp (easy peasy). However she did a poo at 10:30 that night. I think that may have lasted her though (it was quite wet even after the 3.5 hours it was on).

You might find this interesting Rae

We got our weenotions night nappy last night - and compared with what I've been putting on Isabelle I would say it's about 1/2 as much absorbency!

That said I was very impressed - I popped it on her unwashed, I got the cotton outer but hemp inner, and aside from a slim bamboo booster over the hemp (as it was unwashed) it was as is... Well it lasted the night!

Now perhaps she just didn't wee much last night as it wasn't even that soggy - but I was quite impressed...

Perhaps I've been over stuffing Isabelle!

You might want to investigate weedies - we've got a large and its ENORMOUS! I stuff with things like a large bamboo terry, two easy peasy hemp inserts/boosters plus bamboo boosters usually at least... And yes it's HUGE but once covered with custom woolies and she's asleep who's bothered!
That will last the night anytime no matter what she's drunk!! :D

Also what do you cover the nappy with at night? I find PUL leaks loads but fleece was better and wool better still...

I've never used fleece as an outer. I also think that my longies are so lovely it would be a shame to use them at night :? So have been using PUL. Have found my airflows are the only PUL that works, as I get wicking out the top if I use nature babies etc. Will try longies tomorrow if the weenotions night nappy is dry.
Tonight she is in a minki with 3 ellas house hemps + a cotton booster. Fingers crossed.

Just to prove that she likes to mix things up, Kayleigh was dry this morning, and the bottom layer of hemp was barely peed in. Think I got to her before she had her morning wee.
