BBH during the day?

Postby JennyPenny » Tue Apr 21, 2009 6:09 am

Hello. I have seen that many people on here use them for nights but they don't seem to be absorbant enough for Elouise. It should def be up to full absorbancy now but even boosted with hemp it was soaking this morning and I think we get on better with fleece at night anyway.

If I jsut had Elouise then I would sell it but I thought that as it was onesize, it would be useful for the new baby later on down the line, when we first start to need a night nappy.

In the meantime, do you think it would be ok as a daytime nappy? Would it be too bulky do you think? Currently the main shaped nappies we use are MEOS with a booster which seem to be absorbant enough as long as we change every 3 hours. Would I still need to use the pop in boosters that came with the BBH do you think?

Sorry, I know I should just try it but it is obviously now dirty having worn it last night.

At Eloise's age it wasn't absorbent enough for nights for Isabelle but made an excellent day nappy - not too bulky at all I'd say... Depends on her build I guess as to how bulky it would be on her...

I used them as night nappies on Matthew when he was under a year old, after that they made excellent day nappies, trim fit and nicely absorbent - one of my favourite nappies, especially for long car journeys etc. Try it on her and see.

I would have thought even bulky nappies are fine of a day on a girl - anything can fit under a skirt or dress? But I do have 2 boys and no girls

I am planning to get some wool longies and use fluffles of a day sometimes - the only thing that stops me now is that hardly any of his jeans/trousers will fit over them.

Yep, we found them fab as a night nappy for Ben when he was little. Wouldn't work on him now though so we sold them on as we use pockets in the day.

It should be great as a day nappy. You will probably find that you don't need both inserts but depends how heavily your lo wets.
