Once or twice I have noticed that the leg binding seems wet on the tots bots wraps I bought recently. I think these are probably the original wraps as they were the 1.99 ones from best buys 4 baby on ebay. (OK so it serves me right for buying a shed load).
Apart from using another wrap is there a remedy that anyone has found? Will a booster help?
Which booster Mrs Badger, please? Was just going to order some and I have decided that if I get some I will get fleece topped to save time putting in a liner. I noticed that there are hemp boosters, bamboo boosters, cotton boosters, various brands also. What do you recommend?
Got tots bots nappies underneath btw. Some bamboo, some cotton, some fluffle. The fluffle are worst for leaks. I wonder if I need to do some more pre washes? Most have had 2 or 3 but I know they increase in absorbency.
I used to use a microfibre cloth as a booster with DD1, or a small prefold.
I found the absorbancy of fluffles crap compared to cotton TB, I'm afraid, even after extensive washing, so they are the most prone to leak / wick.
ATM I use Bimbles and bumbles which are fleece lined anyway, and a bunch of random boosters, mostly secondhand. The hemp win for slimness vs capacity but do take longer to dry. Get ones that unfold if possible.
how old is child? migth it be time to move up a size?
Ive already got some motherease for the younger child, and I will be using these at night. My girls are 2 yrs 1 month; and 11 months. Their older sister had bimbles which were great but of course I sold them on when she was trained (didnt expect any more!!). I have noticed the leaks on the older girl more.
Afraid the old style wraps certainly do get a lot of moisture on the bindings. But if you can get a new style wrap, you'll be very impressed! Their bindings are just like Motherease wraps and keep all the moisture inside, even with a totally soaked nappy!
