This thread's topic is what size of nappies are your babies in? And how are the cloth bum babies doing?

Donnadoon Wed 03-Jul-13 06:44:37

bear size 4 here

PetiteRaleuse Wed 03-Jul-13 07:05:33

Size 4 too. She's short but, erm, cuddly grin

fruitpastilles Wed 03-Jul-13 07:46:00

Another in size 4 here.

BigPigLittlePig Wed 03-Jul-13 08:17:25

Size 4s due to curvaceous thighs grin

PurplePidjin Wed 03-Jul-13 08:36:28

Size 2 with wool longies over night, size 1 with PUL wraps during the day. That's bamboo fitteds, he's normally in easyfits (which are btp) or small realeasies during the day.

I know exactly what you are talking about PP. Sadly I cannot cope with cloth at the moment due to other pressures plus all the creams he is on would damage them sad

J is in 4+ or 4 depending on what is cheaper.

Does anyone use value nappies? He is between sizes at the moment. We get the tesco pull-up ones for DD2 at night and they are fab. Too big for boy though. I put one on him and everything just came out the leg holes. Oops. Silly mummy.

When I feel better, and if his skin problem is rectified, I would love to give cloth another go.

StuntNun Wed 03-Jul-13 09:42:30

Are 4+ the same size as 4 only more absorbent VQ? J is in size 4 as well, in Tesco Ultra Dry.

I use Aldi now I used to be a Pampers Mum but Ive been converted and Im impressed with them.

ValiumQueen Wed 03-Jul-13 10:39:05

I think so stunt. Besides the weight ranges overlap so much.

Aldi nappies are good, but not always cheapest.

Marking my place to lurk more.

Thank you for finding all the info on the nhs guidelines for cmpi/allergies. I had a read through the few bits I understood and got DH to look too. There's a bit he's latched onto though - that an elimination diet can change an allergy from mild to potentially serious, so should only be done under advice from a dietician.
DH then made me eat some chocolate cake. Practically forced me.

I was happy with the decision last night, now I'm unsure again today. Not helped by the awful night we had. He woke every hour all night, but from 8-10:30 he settled well - fed him and put him straight down and he went straight to sleep, and resettling him at 9 took literally 30s - pick up, quick cuddle, down asleep. 10:30 til 1 am I tried settling him the same but just no joy. He'd fall asleep ok in my arms, and transfer fine. Then 1-10 mins after being put down he'd wake crying again. I tried for ages, even fed to sleep at 11:45. Finally gave in at 1am and coslept but he still woke me very hour after. When cosleeping he'll usually only settle on the breast, so he fed quite a bit overnight. That said, both breasts were unusually full this morning, so I don't think he ate as much as normal.

BP reading about what your awful CM said had me in tears. No wonder your amazing LO wasn't happy with her. If I have suppressed anger at T when he's crying he takesuch longer to settle. They sense these things, and having an angry stranger look after you muat be awful for them. Hugs for you both.
My next door neighbour is a CM and lovely. Really great with the kids and the parents (she's even offered to take T for free for a couple of hours for me after a bad night). I go over quite often with coffee and am amazed how well she handles the kids. From wilfull 3 year olds to a room full of boisterous 5 year olds. Always gentle, calm and firm. I think it helps she's a Christian (though that could be my stereotyping).

VQ lidl nappies are great. They got the mumsnet best nappy award last year. I used them when T was too small for cloth and in a brief lazy period and they're great. We're full time cloth now though.

I like easyfits though we regularly get poo leaks (any advice on that Pidg?) and bamboo fitted size 2 overnight. Just bought some little lamb pocket nappies which I'm hoping will be as good as the easyfits, or better. I'm too cheap (and DH too tight) to buy more expensive easyfits, but we only have 4 so I really struggle keeping him in them. I also have 1 mio solo, and 2 bum genius. We used to do full time bamboo but I struggle to dry them (damaged all our size 1's by putting them on the rads to dry), so only use them overnight now.

How does it feel stacks ? grin

Stacks Wed 03-Jul-13 14:08:44

I feel naughty. Hope my parents don't read MN.

ChasingDaisy Wed 03-Jul-13 14:50:16

So close!

BigPigLittlePig Wed 03-Jul-13 14:52:59

Thanks for the help chasing - went on this website for some inspiration but couldn't use most of the words in case I got told off grin

ChasingDaisy Wed 03-Jul-13 14:53:02

Size 4 here. Sainsbos Little Ones by day and Pampers baby dry at night.

ChasingDaisy Wed 03-Jul-13 14:53:50

<bookmarks site>

PurplePidjin Wed 03-Jul-13 15:00:06

I don't want to be boring, VQ wink

They might just not fit right, Stacks don't buy more till you've established if other brands fit better, it's quite an individual thing. Maybe buy preloved ones to try? I love my realeasies, but have easyfits because dp can manage them (clumsy left hand, not patheticness wink) I didn't know you could damage bamboo fitted on a radiator? Thought it was just PUL <oops>

Elizadoesdolittle Wed 03-Jul-13 15:00:31

Size 3 here. Normally pampers baby dry but tesco replaced them with active fit. They're doing the job at the moment.

chasing big congrats on the flat news.

I like the sticky post on fb. I'm pleased that I had matched the prolific posters mn name and rl name. What I do love is reading the kiddies names, especially those with more than one DC as obviously they are never written on here. There are some lovely names.

ValiumQueen Wed 03-Jul-13 15:12:35

I love reading the names of the kidlings too smile

PetiteRaleuse Wed 03-Jul-13 15:25:13

grin at the end of the last thread. Very inspiring !

ValiumQueen Wed 03-Jul-13 15:37:53

Yes indeed. I am sad I missed it. Perhaps we should set ourselves a challenge to fill an entire thread with swear words today? <<conscious of Stunt glaring at me>>

izzybizzybuzzybees Wed 03-Jul-13 15:39:58

Ok I have made my batch of puree for the nurse coming tomorrow.i also called the hospital and the nurse called me back. She said that James can have both ranitidine and omeprazole together but if I felt the ranitidine wasn't working then I could just do omeprazole. I think we will do that first as I hadn't noticed much difference on the ranitidine, except maybe he would do a 3 hour chunk at the start of the night. Decisions decisions. It just seems a bit excessive to try both without seeing if the omeprazole works alone.

I also went to GP again about my wonky finger. He assures me it cannot be broken yet without X-ray vision I don't see why it couldn't! He is getting me in for blood tests tomorrow!? Maybe suspects RA? And I've been given a weird cream to put on it 3x a day. It's not swollen the wonky but is bony!!

Argh!!!

ValiumQueen Wed 03-Jul-13 15:40:17

Thank you Chasing, he is a little trooper. His default setting is happy, so if he isn't I know there is something wrong. He just commend a huge glob of mucus, and started giggling smile

We also get full on snogs here. Have done for weeks actually. He also likes to slip down and bite your chin too. And it hurts as he has 4 teeth now.

PetiteRaleuse Wed 03-Jul-13 15:40:37

That would draw attention to us in active convos. And at mnhq.

But ok then. Fuckity bollocky shitting wank.

Am baking banana bread. I am sick of handrinsing banana out of LO's vests and scraping it off her chair. So am giving myself a break from that she can have her bananas in banana bread the next few days. If I dn't eat it all myself.
