I hope somebody can helpe me out.
I'm tearing my hair out from desperation! Often I end up using disposables cause I cannot bear the thought of having to change my baby's clothes completely for the nth time in a day!
Here's our stash: FuzziBunz Small, FuzziBunz BTP, Bumgenius BTP, Totbots Bamboozle Size 1. We also have some shaped two-part nappies :Swaddlebees Organic Velour for Newborn and BTP, Little Lamb Cotton Small with wraps Blueberry Minki, Little Lamb and Motherease.
I often stick to the pocket nappies if I can.
Basically my little girl was born quite thin and long (6lb 2oz by 53.5cm). We started using cloth nappies around week 3/4 and they seemed to be doing ok - performing just as well as disposables. My baby is now 12 weeks and not only is she still quite thin and long, but for the part 2/3 weeks she's starting peeing like there's no tomorrow!
Her legs are thin so it seems like pee is just coming out directly from the side of the leg without having the chance to even be absorbed because it doesn't seem to be tight enough.
In the FuzziBunz SMALL even tighetening to the max doesn't seem to be tight enough, and it's supposed to be a SMALL! I have a hard time tightening well any of the nappies with Velcro (If I tighten to the max, it seems like she can't breathe round her tummy while her leg holes are still too wide!).
I like FuzziBunz BTP cause they have so many settings and the legs feel quite secure, but now those have started leaking too (within 2 hrs!) - I tried to add more inserts but she is only a little baby and it seems to make it really tight round her tummy for her (apart from not fitting into any of her clothes anymore!). n.b. I only have inserts that came with the nappies themselves, muslins, and small towels from ikea.
Now quite sure what I can do apart from changing her every hour, but that would be madness!
