Spoke too soon…

18th September 2012

Since writing the last entry about how pleased we are with reusable nappies, we’ve had nothing but leaks. Even the ‘bombproof’ Stretchies have let us down. For the last 2-3 days, every single nappy has leaked – always in the same place, just on the inside of the thigh (and not the outside as used to happen with gappy legs). I thought this came from D being in a sitting position more often, but even at night it happens! What gives? I’m almost tempted to go back to disposables at this rate, certainly when we were out yesterday I popped him in one just in case.

On that note, I can really tell when D is in a disposable now. The moment the nappy gets a little wet, there’s that horrible nappy smell, yuck. Oh, and all his clothes fit again (reusables = bulky) :P For the moment, I’m more content dealing with leaks and constant clothes changes than I am smelling pee smell and/or D being unhappy because he’s wet. I do think I will be looking to get some different nappies though; I think the ones we have are just not suited to him. The Stretchies are ok with a big wrap – we got one a size too big and that seems ok for now – but the Smartipants and Fuzzibuns are not really in my good books of late. Shall see how we go in the next few days/weeks, I guess.
