2 parters defiantly seem more reliable BUT she is the hardest baby I have ever known to change a nappy! I work in childcare so have changed hundreds of babies and I have known wriggly ones but this is the worst I have known! It is not too bad if there are 2 people, but when I am on my own it is hard work and thats where pocket nappies win! I prestuff in advance so its just like changing a disposable.
this sounds familiar! I think LOs act up the worst for their own mothers! It is a power struggle!
My DD usually runs around home with a pocket nappy or cover + prefold (also 1 piece to put on) and no pants these days. I change her chasing her around the house. If we have to put pants, socks and shoes on to go out it takes ages.
How old is your LO? I have found now that my DD is a toddler (15 mo) she can stay dry for a couple of hours then pee buckets all in one go. So I tend to "double diaper" or put in twice as much padding as I would normally if I want her to last through a second pee. Another itty bitty booster wouldn't be enough to hold that second bucket-ful.
Don't know how that relates to your situation, just thought it might be useful if you think of the padding in terms of how many pees. Not really your question though
