Ds is 15 months; he wears tots / bamboozles and ME popper wraps in the day. At night he wears a Tescos disposable, because the cot kept getting wet and we were too tired to find a solution. Feel ready to tackle it now though. What are the best night-nappies? Other than sticking 3 boosters in the tots?
We use bamboozles at night (dd2 is 14mths) with a Woolywraps wool wrap and haven't had any leaks yet. I did start off boosting the bamboozle with a microfibre cloth, but soon realised that she wasn't soaking in the morning so have stopped boosting and the bamboozles are coping fine. I put a fleece liner in as well.
I did buy a Huggle when I first decided to use cloth at night (like you, I was using cloth by day but disposables at night) but then someone told me that they used bamboozles and since I've tried them the Huggle has remained unused - it's very bulky and I couldn't do vests up over it.
Yorkiegirl - I've tried Fuzzis and NatureBabies stuffables. I don't like hemp nappies much - we had some BumHuggers that went really hard and stiff, and started to get holes in by the time they got onto the second baby.
I don't think dh will cope with the concept of a wrap that doesn't get washed every couple of uses so thats wool wraps out.
So, I could try -
- a boosted bamboozle in a ME wrap (have all these)
- get a fleece wrap (I like the Tots polka dot one!)
- Happy Hempy with some microfibre in (and the fleece wrap over?)
- Huggle (what wrap over this?)
We use bamboozles too and I've got one Harmony hemp which is lovely (sim. design to a bumble but completely natural), I tried a bumhugger briefly and thought it was rubbish and so gave up on hemp til I tried the harmony, just wish I could afford more of them.
We use wool too, it's so much nicer than fleece cos it doesn't smell as bad in the morning and after an airing during the day, it smells of whatever I've washed it in (something with lavendar), my favourite is Popolini's wool popper wrap as it's easy to get on (same design as the airflow).
Disposables leak on me anyway (well, not me, I tend to manage not to need them in the night now) - I have a stupid J-Lo shaped bum and have passed it onto both children, and it means that disposables gape at the back.
my dd is 16 months and in the largest size of bambino mio prefolds which just about last the night, mostly. she's a heavy wetter and even disposables can't cope with her, they burst halfway through the night. try limiting drinks in the few hours before bed if possible as it really does make a big differance.
No problem fruitful - not got your CAT yet, but once I have it will post the Huggle off to you. It is lovely actually - really soft, I found it in the drawer tonight and couldn't resist giving it a stroke .
I love my Woollywrap - it just pulls on like a pair of pants so really easy, and as vkone says, doesn't retain any smells. Hmm. really must go and order another one...
