you need fancy fitteds :twisted: Are your bamboozles new or preloved? (eg have they been washed to full absorbency?)

If you have a heavy wetter you might just need to change mroe often for now, i would change izzy every 2 hours when she was piddlign loads but found other nappies would last a little longer BUT they are more expensive.

If pockets work better maybe stick with them?

Part of our problem is leaky BG. I poured some water on our BG and it just beaded, took at least 30 seconds before it was absorbed, a strip was has helped a little but not great. We're trying to avoid using the BG but it leaves us a bit short of nappies.

The Bamboozle was preloved so should be up to absorbency. I was wondering about fancy fitteds but not sure I can afford it :giggle:

The bumgenius pul might need re-sealing. Stick them in the hot dryer for a few minutes & see if that makes a difference.

The good thing about BG is that you can switch out or boost the inserts. I have a super heavy wetter & bumgenius are our main nappies. I use a pd bamboo insert & 2 ep hemp in them. I also use standard night nappies as our day time so that will tell how good the pd/ep combo is.

it's the inserts that the water is beading on, it's just not soaking in.
