ME sandys - which wrap?

Postby fluffycabbage » Sun Sep 20, 2009 6:17 pm

Ive used a couple of preloved sandys on dd today, and like the fit on her, but they werent particularly absorbent on their own, so will try boosting next time. will also start to look for some large bamboo, as shes still in small.
Question is, what wrap would you recommend for use with a sandys nappy and why?

Hi Sarah,
I like ME airflows over all nappies when we use a PUL wrap (we use wool most of the time), i just like the fit on Ds and I like that they are looser fitting (i guess i compare a airflow to bridget jones comfie pants and snugger fitting wraps like control pants :oops: :giggle: ) I know which i prefer :oops: :wink:

That's a really good comparison!

Airflows are great and the most reliable wrap around IMO. They will certainly fit over a Sandys. The ME Rikki ( the velcro version) is also really good. I'm also having success with thirsties wraps at the moment and Weenotions also fit although they are bulky.

Stear clear of anything that's slim cut like Blueberries and Swaddlebees as you won't get the Sandy's underneath.

I like the way the Nature babies wrap fits over the sandys.

sandys are my nappy of choice hun and like you i am now looking for some bamboo large ones. to echo what the other ladies have said my fave wraps for over the sandys are....airflow, rikki and nature babies. of all the wraps i have tried these are my 3 absolute faves and what i have in my nappy collection. another wrap i like too in general and over the sandys is the imsevimse wraps as they are lovely and soft and stretchy.

i first loved the rikkis when ethan was in the small size wraps but for some reason when he went into the medium size which he is in now i just feel that the airflow suits him better. maybe that will change again when he goes into the big sizes. and i am a huge fan of the popper nature babies wraps, they seem a great fit and are very adjustagle and seem softer than the airflows wraps too.

good luck hun x

I always liked the rikki wraps (wither motherease or popolini as they are the same :wink: ), they are fab for reliability and a nice fit. I wasn;t so keen on the airflow ones as I found them baggy and balloony :giggle:

Nature babies are good too, not quite as reliable as the rikkis but come in much cuter prints :D

A little slow off the mark :oops: but I used Sandys on Ted when he was smaller (we still use them now) and found motherease (airflow and rikki), nature babies and WN wraps really reliable. The blueberry wraps didn't seem to cover well unless we used the next size up to what we actually needed iyswim.
