Slim 3 month old - what nappies?

Postby busymummy » Sat Jun 29, 2013 7:43 pm

I need some nappies for my daughter. She's slim build and weighs about 10 lbs. My 2 yr old is in pockets but my daughter out wees them every time I try her in one....she still has long daytime sleeps so I need a nappy to last 3 hours. Any suggestions?

Pockets and BTP nappies have never suited eleanor because she is soooooooooooooo skinny.

Our nappy stash with her are itti bitti's and fitteds (with either wool, fleece wraps or the very occasional PUL wrap)

My lo is the same and we've struggled with pockets and fitteds. We now use bottom bumpers which fit really well and are really absorbant.

Only 10lbs at birth? Titch. ;)

Ittis are very slim fitting, so I'd second that suggestion. If you're after a fitted, Tush are very slim fitting. You'd need to look out for them second-hand though, as I think she closed.

i'm in the same boat, 4 mo and 10lbs. we're still in nb nappies here: xs sandies with a booster, 40 cm terries with a booster, little lambs bamboo, tots bots bamboozles. for nights i use a 40 terry kite fold with another nappy over the top (totsbots usually). pul nb covers. these combos last 3 hours for us (6 at night).

The Gorilla was 11lb 8oz at birth. Miss Moo was my skinny minnie featherweight (an ounce shy of 9lb). Thinking some more, with her, I found Wee Notions' Northern Lights a good fit for her scrawny legs. (My two currently weigh the same - despite the Gorilla only being 2 and Miss Moo being 5. :giggle:)
