22 layers

Postby charlibunny » Sun Aug 14, 2011 8:48 am

22 layers and it still leaked :shock: :shock: 1 thirsties hemp prefold, 1 ep hemp and 2 ll bamboo under a thirsties wrap.

He feeds 4 times in the night and his night nappies must weigh a stone. The obvious answer is change him in the night, but every time I do this he wakes up and won't go back off.

Nothing works :x :x :x

have you tried using wool instead of the thirsties wrap? wool allows moisture to evaporate whereas the pul wrap holds it all in - might be worth a go?

I sooooo know where you are coming from!
Eleanor had a bamboozle on the other night with a BBOS hemp insert & 2LL boosters and also still leaked!

Have you thought about dedicated night nappies for heavy-super heavy wetters?
I've just got 2 HL BB+ and going to give them a try once they are prewashed!
There must be other solutions to changing him in the night! You need your sleep.

Have you tried weighing his nappy before and after to see how much liquid it contains, that would give you an idea how much absorbency you need. Doesn't Ems do custom absorbency nappies?

Could it be that rge fit is wrong rather than lack of absorbency?

Austin was like that at night, never got on with night nappies he *always* needed changing at night at least once or twice. He's probably still waking 4 times because he's so wet (sorry if that's defeating the point)

Yeah you have a fair point. Sometimes a BG stuffed with 2 EP hemp and a PD works and he still wakes up 4 times. It's ever since he had croup :|

The BG's stuffed well fit lovely. I think the prefold leaked last night due to bad fit, but there wasnt a cm of booster tha wasn't dripping :roll:
