What are the best nappies for night? dd is in motherease and air-flow wraps during the day, but I prefer the idea of fleece at night. I've been putting her in tots bots and a red fleece wrap for the last bit of 'night' (4ish to 8ish) and she's now ready for me to invest for the rest of the night as I only have 1 fleece wrap. What do people think of minkies, they look good too, or is tots bots better?
just started this myself - I have a size 2 tots, a wee notions and a bumbles. My favourites are the bumble and wee notions with a ME airflow wrap. I have just bought a staccinator so simple wrap and am about to try it out for the first time tonight. I use Fuzzibunz and Happy Heiny's for during the day for their slim fit and ease of one layer.
Tots or bumbles with a fleece wrap. I had to get the next size up wrap as the nappy is boosted. also have found that a thicker wrap is better - I was lucky to get hold of a couple of nappysaurus wraps (discontinued I think). Stuffie nappies do a good looking night wrap too and I've heard their nappies (like bumble) can be more absorbant.
Have been using Tots with a fleece wrap but have recently been trialling a Slinki Minki stuffed with loads of stuff (a microfibre booster that I made myself, plus a microfibre cloth, plus a terry booster) and I have to say that I think that performs much better overall and wicks the moisture away from DS's skin.
I do have a Bumble on order as that's the other one I've seen highly recommended for nighttime use, and when I've tried that too I'll invest in a few of one or the other.
I've used Motherease One Size (with a fleece liner) plus a folded flanel or half a terry square used as a booster between it and the Air Flow wrap. Does an excellent job for an 18month old boy through the night. I'm biased though as I didn't like the Tots Bots - too thick to wash and dry, I prefer to boost the Mothereas One Size.
I think dd is quite a heavy wetter as even boosted the motherease only last her a max of four hours, so won't see her through the night. I think fleece wraps should help this though. Thanks for all the advice, I like the look of the stuffies, minkis and bumbles, might have to try a few different types! What is a microfiber booster? Is this like fleece?
