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.
