I've got it on its folded down version because DS is only diddy, but it all wicks from the lining bit round the front... Am I doing something wrong? Is there any way to stop it folding forward a bit and wicking?
Right - bumgenius, I like the style, easy to use for a non-cloth user (babysitters etc), but I seem to be having this wicking problem. Washes really well - the booster takes itself out in the machine so washes well.
Hempresto I'm still gathering pennies to try (had forgotten what I was wanting to buy ) - I think I might be forced to get one later (sold a pile of bamboozles).
I tried magicalls as well, but they don't seem to be coping, so I'm waiting until the babykind sale at the end of the month and giving the next size up a try... They do a 70% refund on used nappies, so it might be worth my while seeing if they'll take back my small ones - I'll do the adding up and see if I could get more just selling them on or not.
I gather the bumgenius are so cute but they are really slim.
How come you sold your bamboozles? I thought you liked them.
I have looked at the HemPresto nappies but I wonder if there are better ones out there
I have always been into cute pretty nappies but I'm finding with a boy my attitude is changing.
I'd like easy nappies, that I can throw into the washing machine on a hot wash and dry quickly.
Hope it's not a boy thing.
I bought 15 bamboozles in the first place, but I only use about 3 a day at the most, with a fluffle for nights, was every 3rd day, and I have a few other different ones too, so I didn't need anywhere near that many, so I sold 5, sent one as a trial, and now still have 9 of em
The thing putting me off the hempresto is the cost of all the bits when put together...
Given up on the bumgenius for the day (only got the one) - Gonna fiddle with it on a teddy bear later
I'm starting to wonder if it is just the style and my ds's bum.. I breed em with sticky out bums, so with disposables it is a nightmare getting a good fit round the big bum, and then neat at the waist, so we get leaks all the time - the bumgenius is the same shape, which could be causing the issues. Maybe I'm destined to a life of nippas and airflows
Looked up the hempresto properly - £17 for just one complete set . Maybe not for me....
I do like the look of those fleece mat thingies though - might go to fabric land tomorrow and get a bit of fleece and some poppers and make me one.
I am so glad I found this thread! I have exactly the same problem with my poppered down bumgenius, the suedecloth inner sticks out the front with mine too. Takes tonnes of adjusting until I am sure it is't going to wick, really annoying. I have a boy with no bum whatsoever so that doesn't explain it!
