Fluff n Stuff

Postby fluffycabbage » Wed Jun 23, 2010 7:59 am

We're going back to fitteds (again :roll: ) - was wondering how good Fluff n Stuff nappies are for heavy wetters? How do they compare to Dunk n Fluff nappies? Only looking at BV. ta x

Martha isn't a heavy wetter so I can't answer for us, but.... I know that Emma1977's son Max IS a heavy wetter and Emma says that FnS heavy wetters are fabulous on Max, better than the DnFs. :wink:

I guess it depends on how heavy a wetter your LO is, I can't get away with either fluff&stuff or dunkNfluff in the mornings on Noah. He's a seriously heavy wetter though. I tend to use them in the afternoon when he doesn't wet quite so heavily.. They don't last through his nap either.

They're perfect on Poppy, she's a moderate wetter and can wear a f&s for upto three hours and dNf too.

Night nappies. :giggle: We can just about get 2 1/2-3 hours out of bedbugs and HO night nappies so they're morning nappies..

I don't rate them. We had a heavy wetter FnS and it didn't last on Iris, so I sold it on. They do run large, I found. Iris was happily in a medium at 2. I find Dunk Fluffs much better as it's much easier to fold all the layers into the wet zone to boost absorbency. I didn't find that as easy to do with a FnS.

As Queenie mentioned I love our FnS HWs and they work really well for us. I can get about 2-2.5 hours out of one which, compared with some of our other fitteds, is brilliant. I also love them the fit as they go on Max like a glove and are nice n trim. I have to agree with Soupdragon tho that there isn't much room for added boosting if you want to use something like a PD - you could get away with slimmer boosters like EP hemp ones :wink:

As for DnF I'm not hugely loving ours. I have 4 and won't buy anymore as alone and unboosted they last about 1.5 hours at the most. As a few other people have pointed out tho they do have far more room for lots of boosting and will happily take a PD. I just don't like having to boost my nappies loads during the day when I can buy ones that don't require it.

As Carolyn has mentioned I tend to use dedicated NN during the day as well and have a stash of around 10-12 Bedbugs :oops: that work well and will last around 3-3.5 hours on Max. I also have LLS NN, WNNN and am looking to try a Puddlekins NN.

Hope that helps :D
