I have been using MEOS for my dd (21 months) very happily and successfully, along with popper-ed wraps. She has just started at nursery for 2 mornings a week, and they seem to be struggling a bit. They are happy to use cloth, but dd is a bit of a wriggler, and they never manage to keep the nappy totally covered by the wrap, so are getting lots of leaks. Can anyone recommend an all-in-one or stuffable nappy for me to send with dd instead? Have no idea which might be good...
also use meos. my nursery generally doesnt have a problem...have used nature babies stuffable nappy it's quite good, tried a few AIO's but never really got on with them (motherease AIO or another one i think it was called the pro-rap or something).
We use a range of stuffables for ds at nursery -- mostly Fuzzi Bunz but also Nature Babies, Wonderoos, Supa Dupas, Bear Behinds and Banana Babies. They all work fine -- we stuff either with three of Tesco Value range microfibre cloths, a hemp insert, a pad-folded terry or some of the inserts that came with the Supa Dupas.
I agree with Soupy - I've had a couple of problems with my BG, but that is due to size troubles, with a 21 month old they would be perfect. Just put em together before sending them in, and they are just cloth disposables (even with stretchy sides ala active fit).
silverfrog..I've had all sorts of fun with ds's nursery and cloth nappies...bless 'em, they sai dthey were fine to use cloth and said they didn't need me to give them a run through on how to use them, so great!
DS has come home in a tots bots minus a wrap a couple of times! He's also come home with a damp ring around his waist where the wrap doesn't cover the whole nappy!
PLus sometimes I run out of cloth nappies ( due to a somewhat ad hoc washing regime!) and have to put a disposable in his bag too...and they always choose to use the disposable over the cloth one! Even when I hide the disposable right at the very bottom of the bag!!!
Was thinking along lines of an AIO solution too!!
Flame. Why are you folding it down? Have you put it into the newborn position?
Try popping it together as you would and when you have done that put your fingers in behind the poppers. If the material of the nappy is 'up' behind the poppers, it will gape out IYSWIM. So, put your fingers in behind the poppers and push the material 'down' so that the poppers are above the fold.
I think I see what your problem is. I made this mistake in the beginning.
