Out & about, what's best?

Postby Kirstyh » Tue Feb 03, 2009 9:21 am

What is best to use over fitteds when your out and about? Is a wrap the best, I have a fleece soaker but presume that wetness would soak through while Gracie is in her pram and the same for wool??????? xx

I wouldn't use fleece but wool should be fine. Katie only ever wears wool over her fitteds now. If she's in the sling I usually use a wool wrap with longies over the top otherwise we get compression wicking but in the pushchair one layer of wool is usally fine for us.

I only used PUL over fitteds in the daytime so would say PUL :lol: but yes I wouldn't use fleece and you should be fine with wool...

I've never tried fleece and don't intend to! Summer is still in the pram so don't really get compression, but I often use wool when out and about, probably more often that PUL! We don't have any problems in the car seat or mei tai!

We mainly use PUL now out and about, and save the wool for indoors and night times.

I only use pockets these days but have used both pul and wool in the day over fitteds, both worked well, although you do need to be more careful with the absorbency of the nappy with wool. I wouldn't use fleece in the day, although I wouldn't use fleece at night either :lol:

I tend to use PUL when we're out and about and wool for indoors and nighttimes.
