Bamboozles

Postby Nimyue » Sat Oct 29, 2011 2:14 pm

So I bought some used Bamboozles for really cheap. I got them home, their absorbency is good and they fit well. However, they are rather rough... I didn't really notice until a friend of mine game me 2 of hers and they are really plush and soft. Are my other ones just older? Should they maybe be stripped? I'm just a little confused at how the two can be so different... :-?

We found the older ones with the sewn in booster arent as fluffy as the new ones with a snap in booster.

Also, we tumble dry them for a few minutes after they are dry which makes them a bit softer.

The old bamboozles were made of a different material to the new stretchy ones so the newer ones are softer.

If you don't have a tumble dryer to use, you could stomp on them or beat them against a wall to soften them up. On the other hand my DS has never really noticed that he's wearing a crunchy nappy! :giggle:

Ok that must be it. The ones I bought have the sewn in booster and the ones that were just given to me have the snap in one. Phew! I was worried my nappies were on the critical list! :oops:

WSS^^

Ours have never noticed the different between new soft nappies & older crunchy ones.
We wriggle the nappy about and the fibres soon soften up. A quick tumble or part tumble will also do it if you have one (we don't so the wriggling & nappy beating works here :giggle:)

Yup, just give them a good hard rub, like you would if you were hand washing clothes & that should help.

I always put one of those fluffy little lamb fleece liners in so the nappy is never in contact with the slin anyway. I think the old style bamboozles are a real bargain. Dead cheap on fsot and great workhorse nappies :D

My old style bamboozles went bald and I had to bin them don't know if I just had a bad bunch.
