Heavy wetter stuffing problems

Postby kittenattacks » Wed Aug 31, 2011 11:08 am

Hi all,

DS wears flips most of the time and some ebay cheapies but i find I have to change him every 2 hours. I am quite new to cloth and I need some cheap ideas of what to stuff his nappies with to extend their life and to stop him being soaked. I have used the organic inserts with the flips but he still is wet all the time leaving him red..

I haven't even attempted to try a night nappy! I do have some ittis in the post but i'm not sure he will fit into them yet,

Any ideas?

You will probably need to use hemp and or bamboo inserts. A stay dry layer on top like fleece or minkee liner may help with the redness.How old is your lo?

What kirsty said. Add hemp underneath and a fleece liner. The Flip inserts are not stay dry so will stay wet against his bum unless you add a stay dry layer like fleece which should solve your problem.
How much have the organic inserts been washed, as in are they quite new still?

Best pocket combination for heavy wetters is a bamboo double insert with a hemp booster underneath.

Where can I find these inserts? I've seen some on ebay but not sure if they are any good!

Hemp Babies little weeds are what I used to put under the organic cotton Flip inserts to boost them a bit.

Check out classifieds on here and stick a wanted post in the relevant section. Petite dessous (sp) bamboo inserts and Easy Peasy hemp are what we always used. A lot of people use little lamb ones as well x

My ds is a very heavy wetter. Now all I use are tots bots easyfits and stuff them with pd insert folded over and a do hemp booster. He easily lasts a good 3 hours in it. Or try a greenkids bamboo double insert. Alternatively ask Ems at Little Gumnut for some zorb boosters as these are great too :-)
