This lady will make them for you in all sizes up to very obese adult if needed, so don't scared to give her a ring with your requirements, even if they seem odd. (e.g fabrics to use, any seam sensitivities etc). She's been going a few years, (I found her when my lad was a newborn!)so may even have some useful hints and tips. I can say her products last well as the baby nappies I used are now on their 3rd bum!

thanks a lot, boc. will have a good look.

strange question - do you change the fabric nappy after every wear (we need it for bedwetting only)? or can you wear it a couple of times and only change the liner?
I am totally clueless blush

Have a look at eBay too. I got some FuzziBunz for my lot, in sizes not readily available here. Even shipped from the States they were a reasonable price (about £10 each from memory).

Depending on size of 6 year old, you could have a couple of options - take. Look at Real Easy nappies too. I have also had a small, slim 6 yer old in Charlie Bananas, sized ones in large.

As regarding changing - it spends on type and frequency of use. Eg pocket nappies like FuzziBunz or Charlie Bananas I change everything each time as it's a bit like wearing extra padded pants, iyswim. But ds is in two part nappies (motherease nappies with motherease covers) and I don't always change the cover part each time, unless dirty.
