I am looking for some bed wetting nappies, but my DD is only 27 pounds, and very skinny (like her dad, not her mum unfortunately, LOL). I am therefore reluctant to buy the Motherease Bedwetters, as I have seens reviews that they are suitable for 30 lbs + and are quite big on the waist. Does anyone know of any others, she will not wear a nappy for bed as "they are for babies, and I am a big girl now!", am using disposable pull ups at the moment, but don't really want to as I have always used real nappies. I wash my other DD nappies about every 5 days so how many would I need, can they go through with normal washing?
Check out Minki yo-yos - they do a 'slinki' version for skinny kids (I feel your pain, my 3 year old disappears when he turns sideways, and they're fine on him). Pretty pricey but my hot tip is this - buy one, or two, and enough inserts to last a few days. Then each morning chuck the insert in with your other dirty nappies give the fleece pocket part a quick soap and water rinse and squeeze, and it should be dry again by bedtime (good old fleece). Then you can give it a proper wash when you're washing your other DD's nappies. Genius.
Someone recommended the Minki to me, and once I've got through this stock of pampers I'm getting one. They do them in Bob the Builder ! Sooo excited DS will be OVER THE MOON and hopefully will also get to bed quicker too
the yo-yo is cool because it's pull-up (up and down, yo yo, see what they've done there?) It has poppers so you can undo it in an emergency but the sides are stretchy so you leave them done and up and pull up and done like pants. Hence, not a nappy, not babyish!
