my sis has given me some fab wool soakers. I have used them at night and find them great, but the only thing is, babs is very bottom heavy when he is wearing them? i put a vest on over them and a sleepsuit on over that, is that total overkill on my part? his wee bum is floating inches above the mattress and i worry that it is putting strain on his back as he doesnt seem to be lying flat?
also, i find in general, his bulky nappies dictate the clothes he wears, all his vests are stretched beyond normal limits and he wears bigger clothes to compensate for his bulky nappies. do other users find this too? some of my inlaws have commented that his nappies might interefere with his using his legs, i dont agree but it has planted a seed of doubt in my mind.
he wears bmbzls, LL and bg. he is nearly 17lbs, 4 and a half months old and tbh the size 1 tots bots are quite snug on him already. im going to sell on the bmbzls (when we get enough sun to bleach out the bf poo stains!) as i think the wraps are too tight on his legs, leave terrible marks even when i buy a bigger size they leave marks very quickly. so, id like to keep with the wool wraps for his night wear and maybe BG for daytime. i love the LL, they are so much softer the the bmbzls which i bought 3rd hand. my sis has also knitted some longies for him, i just need to lanolise them for use.
so, long story short, does anyone else find thier nappies very bulky!!! and how to ensure babs is comfy?
