Using a pocket as a wrap?

Postby Tara84 » Tue Oct 06, 2009 3:50 pm

Is there any reason why a pocket nappy couldn't be used as a wrap over a fitted or flat nappy?

I plan on using fitteds to start with this baby and then use pockets during the day once her thighs have chunked up a bit(I seem to make very long skinny babies with scraggly little legs :giggle: ) I'm using up the last of the PUL I've got and I can't decide whether to do all small size pockets or some small pockets and some small wraps.

I have 4 small sized wraps and plan to wash every 2 days so could maybe do with 1 or 2 more wraps. I've only got 2 small sized pockets so far so could do with quite a few more, so it would be handy if I could make all pockets and then use some as wraps if I run out.

hiya, i've done this, although i don't know if all pockets go over fitted nappies, think the cut might be a bit different, but not sure. i've put medium pockets over small fitted ones, ie totsbots cotton. hope some one can jump in and be more helpful!

Might work over a slim fitted but pockets are usually cut rather slimmer than wraps and the slim cut wraps I've got don't work over a lot of fitteds :roll: so it depends how you cut them I guess...

Thanks for the replies, I've had a quick trial run with a teddy, the 2 pockets I've made so far fit ok over the bimbles I have(think their size 0, were preloved and advertised as 1 but their teeny) and the small fitteds that I've made I don't think they'll work over the size 1 little lambs though, is hard to tell with a teddy with very squishy legs :giggle:
So if I make sure I have normal wraps for over the LL we should be ok using pockets over the others :D

you can buy wraps for really cheap and would probably be best doing that and using the pockets as pockets, i have made a few fleece wraps to go over pocket nappies, just cut them a tiny bit bigger
