I fold all of the boosters except the top one in half and place them in Iris' wetzone. The top one I lay flat over the top of everything to keep all the layers in place. Then there are 10 layers of fabric in the wetzone, excluding the actual nappy.

WSS. Did you buy it new or was it preloved? If it was new it will take a few washes to reach full absorbency. If it was preloved it may need stripping if it still doesn't seem to last very long.

Nicola, when you say the top one what do you mean? I assume they are all the same, Gracies have one big snap in one that folds in half then snapped in then a single lay in one, so which do you fold??? xx

I put the single one inbetween the one you fold in half and fold the bottom layer of that one and the single one in half leaving the top one flat IYSWIM?
