Dd has grown out of her size 6 nappies. She is very slim, so the smallest adult size is huge on her. Does anyone know of there is something inbetween?

Have you thought about using cloth? It can be a daunting thought, but once you get into the swing of it is runs smoothly, and no onward costs after the initial expense.

I struggle to find anything suitablefit wise in disposables, so just keep on using cloth (but then I always have since she was a baby, so the idea of it is not overwhelming)

The XS attends slips fitted DS2 fine, when he grew out of pampers, and he's always been a skinny bean, until recently.

There is a pampers 6+, now, but it's hard to get hold of. Some of the bigger supermarkets sometimes have stock. Tesco online have stock, at the moment

Libero 7 are quite nice - they're made by Tena. They seem a bit bulky after pampers and whiff a bit when they've been weed in, but work well and don't leak.

And, if you want a pull up, there's always drynites 4-7 or underjams M/L (I think I have the sizes matched correctly to the brands).

We use the Libero size 7 nappies and pull-ups which we get from Tena Direct. Postage is free and delivery is very quick. We contacted them before we first bought any to get some free samples so that we were sure we were buying the correct size.
If you contact your local continence service (health visitor or school nurse can refer you I think) you may be eligible for free nappies.

As boobybum has said surely your daughter is entitled to pads from the NHS, DS had them just at night as he piddled the bed when he had a seizure. Good luck.
