OK, so I've got some secondhand pocket bots (plain pul outers) for my heavy wetting babba (nickname for him - well it's actually ickle babba though he's far from ickle.
They're a size medium, he's about 13lb roughly but long bodied. The nappies fit him really well on the tightest poppers at the waist and round the legs. They're fin in the rise too - I was originally thinking he'd need a medium/long so bought a secondhand one just to try for size (must sell it actually as its cotton outer which will not work with him
). It came up huge on him so I think we'll get away with mediums for a while yet.
I'm stuffing them with an easy peasy hemp insert with a multiple layer microfibre insert (was recommended some by someone on here - thanks and sorry I can't remember your name off the top of my head
He was wearing one this afternoon from about 2.15pm-ish to about 5.30pm-ish so quite a while I guess. When I changed him the leg edges were very slightly damp, the fleece seems to stick out a bit. Should I be making sure the fleece all stays right inside the nappy? I'm finding it hard on all the fleece lined nappies I have to stop the fleece inside from rolling out towards the outside.
I took the inserts out to see how wet they were. The hemp one was wet but not absolutely saturated - there was about 1.5cm of dry insert at the end (where it was at the back of the nappy. The microfibre insert felt fairly damp but definitely not sodden. Presumably it is taking the moisture in and then it is being absorbed by the hemp insert behind it.
Am I doing something wrong with the Pocket Bots? Not enough stuffing? Expecting too much from a pocket nappy on such a young baby?
As I said, the nappy didn't leak as such but I was wondering if the fleece round the legholes is supposed to feel so damp. I'm making sure the inserts fill the pocket right up to the edges. Cole does wriggle about a lot though in his cot during the day so I'm wondering if that is making the inserts move a bit and therefore they aren't staying put as much as they should.
I had to laugh though, I bought the microfibre inserts from Totnes Nappy Company - the ones at the top of this page:http://www.totnesnappycompany-shop.co.u ... ers-Liners
I got the large ones as they suggested for medium nappies and they seem enormous! They're actually only about 1 1/2 inches longer than the easy peasy inserts but they looked gigantic when I got them out of the packet. Thought they'd never fit my medium pocket nappies.
I'm thinking I might trim them down a bit in size as I had to fold them over at one end which made the nappy even bulkier.
They're fantastic quality though and I was very impressed with the service. I bought them at about 1.15pm yesterday and they arrived this morning! How's that for fast delivery?! And it was postage free.
I'll shut up now! I'm waffling.
