A little update...WOW!!!

well, cole went to bed last night with a Funky Nappy on, stuffed with a 2 layer bamboo insert folded into three and then a three layer microfibre insert on top of that.

about 5 hours later we got him up for his last bottle and :shock: the inserts were barely wet! i was gobsmacked! i thought he was a heavy wetter. :roll:

the microfibre cloth was slightly damp but parts of it at the back were dry. :shock:

the bamboo insert was hardly wet either just at the front where he wees. the rest of it just fet a little bit damp.

i was expecting it to be quite soggy after that length of time. :)

does this mean he's not a heavy wetter after all? can i get away with less inserts/thinner inserts? :?

he'd had an 8 oz bottle of milk before i changed him. :shock:

I think babies do this every so often in order to lull us into a false sense of security. I'd keep up with the extra bulk for a while yet just in case he decides to wee like a trooper again.

yay! success at last :D :wine:

I too would keep up the padding for a while! after all it is better to have overstuffed than understuffed right??

Perhaps he hadnt done his full wee yet, and this is why the inserts werent sopping wet. I would try him with the same stuffing for a few more nights and if they are still barely wet then you could reduce the stuffing gradually.
