There must be a non-leaking nappy!

Could you not put a reusable wrap over the top to prevent the leaks?

The point about traditional terry nappies is that they're cheap, and easy to wash and dry.

School cannot refuse to use washable nappies. They won't wash them so you will get them back in a waterproof bag at the end of the day. If you want to go down this route and have problems wih school let me know and I'll forwrad you the relevenat info (I'm a SENCO in a primary school and only yesterday had to look up all the regulations about an 8 year old that soiled herself each day)

PHP do have an In Confidence catalogue of washable options for bigger children and adults.

Is she a big or a small 5 year old. If she's small then an Toddlerease Sandys are great at containing leaks with a Motherease or Onelife wrap over the top. Or the new Lollipop Pop'n'Gro goes quite large and is an all-in-one nappy - comes in funky colours os she might be happier wearing it.

Nature nappies? My dd never leaked and she wees a lot.
They are more ££ but if you get them free, shouldn't be an issue hopefully. Not everywhere stocks them, but you're in a city, yes?
They also have no nasty chemicals, so don't smell plasticky IYSWIM. DD alsways slept through in them as they don't get hot when you wee- bonus!

If you want, I could mail you a couple of size 5s to try- dd has just gone nappy-free at night now, and we have a pack opened. (DS in size 4s, prob for a long while)
I do find them on the small side though- DS is only 4mo and in size 4, though he's a wide baby.

Will CAT now then riven. Worst that happens is they're no good either. tbh they aren't that much more than pampers- pampers are more expensive than most brands I think.

why not try size 5+ or size 6 in pampers - ds was in size 6 at the age of 2. We always moved up a size when they started leaking and that solved the problem.

I know you are limited because of what you can get free, but dn was potty trained very late and she was a big girl (wore size 5-6 clothes at 3) and drank gallons. SIL used to buy Tesco's own size 6 and they never leaked for her.

After having 4 dc's in cloth I don't think you need to worry anymore about eco friendly - you've done your time grin

Is she big enough for the Attends nappies?

They go up to adult sizes and are stocked in most hospitals so presumably you could be supplied with them.
