DD1 suffered terribly with nappy rash so the Motherease went to the back of a drawer 3 years ago. What with the recession and 4 weeks of no rubbish collection I've been given the kick up the bum I needed and DD2 is now sporting said nappies.
Just a bit of advice from the experts please -
I fancy the idea of a bag to store the dirty nappies. I've been reading about Monkey Foot. Are they really good? What size? Where is the best place to buy?
I need a couple more wraps. Should I stick with Motherease, or are there better ones available now?
The best selection of MF wetbags is at www.nappywardrobe.co.uk You will need an XL if using instead of a bucket. It holds about 8 nappies. ME wraps are IMO some of the most reliable wraps around, although a little boring. You could always have a Wee notions one for best. Are you using a liner? Fleece ones would give baby a nice stay dry layer.
You can get 10 Bambinex fleece liners for £4 there. They allow moisture through but stay dry to touch. Better at preventing nappy rash especially at night time & you will save money not buying flushable ones. Just a thought
My team have found the best wras are Nature Babies wraps. they are funky, but also have an extremely efficient leak guard gusset, which most wraps don't have. They are also a good price, starting at £5.39 for a birth to potty size wrap
Motherease wraps are great and among the best, but i agree with Littlepants Naturebabies wraps are great although dont go for the essentials wrap if dd2 is small! Its a meduim-large wrap so might swamp her.
The Classic wraps are fab! Or you could try fleece which will allow airflow, if your worried about rash this may help!
I think I'll get some Motherease as I know the size I need and it's good to know they're still one of the best. I'll order from Nappy Wardrobe and get a Monkeyfoot bag, but unfortunately the fleece liners are out of stock.
you need a piece of fleece (fabric shop, market stall etc) and a pair of scissors. All you do is cut them to size to fit inside the nappy, round the corners if you're being fancy. They won't fray and will last until your small person potty trains
Nappywardrobe does have fleece liners ((Scurries off to check out stock control))) lol - you can make your own - fleece cut into rectangles - I bought some ages ago with the intention of making soy/fleece boosters but have failed due to a) no sewing machine b) want them uniformily cut c) looks tricky!!
