Has anyone got any reccomendations for pull on wraps. I would like to try some for ds who is 2.2 years. I bought some boots ones but they are so plasticky and hard. Ds hates them, they rustle and left red marks round his thighs, and he has fairly skinny thighs.

Does anyone know of any others. I have seen some disana microfibre ones on twinkle that look quite interesting but thought I'd ask for opinions before I order anything.

Rebs wraps are fab, but they are quite balloony like. If getting them don't get the cotton outer ones, get the ones that are just one layer like PUL. The cotton covers tend to wick.

you could try stacinator. they popper up the sides, but you can use them as pull up ones as well

Thanks for both those reccommendations. I will look into the stacinator. Horsemadgal I found rebs wraps on a search engine, but on her site it says that she is finishing and the only wraps she has left aren't big enough. Do you know if she sells through any other outlets?

If you had had a DD rather than DS, I have a large rebs wrap that DD never even used (went and potty trained before she ever wore it), but I think it migh be a little pink and floral for your needs .

You could always try wool

I can get the xxl (35lb+) rebs ones - look in the small business bit for bumfluff

Can you pull up Bummis super snaps?

Don't know if they're any good.

Thank you Idris. Ds would probably love it, but dp wouldn't be very happy.

I thought Flame would try and turn me to wool. I've got a lanolin sensitivity though so I thought just puting it on and off ds would probably bring my hands out in rash. Are the xxl ones huge? Ds is 30lb but very tall so sometimes I find that I need to get bigger than his weight.

Ceolas, I'll look at the bummis snap ones, but I've tried using my airflows as pull ups which hasn't been very sucessful so if they are similar to those I don't know if it will work.

Thanks everyone for your posts. I will check in the morning to see if their are any more.

Tis ok - you could get one of the WAHM's to make you an acrylic wool wrap, they work in the same way as fleece would (so need washing every 12 hrs or so), but no lanolin

Knittin to the rescue again Mwahahahaha!

tutu, the rebs seem to be hard to get hold off. Be worth putting ad on nappy lady wanted.

Bummis also do a normal pull on pant - a whisper pant which Kittykins have for £4 each - they go up into big sizes too.

Thank you everyone for your replies. I am looking into all of them.

Flame, I started knitting ds a wool wrap before, then remeber my lanolin sensitivity. So if I knit him one in acrylic once it's knitted does it need to have anything else done to it? or is it just wash and wear, cos if so I can try that myself. Which would be a very cheap way of trying a pull on wrap.

Nope, just wash n wear

I get on OK with Boots plastic pants, but you could try Mothercare ones, because they are a bit better quality.
