I found this post as a draft that has been hanging around since November 2010! Time unfortunately hasn’t helped so I thought I would post it in case anyone can help.
I have to rant about disposable nappies.
Ages ago we were asked to test Huggies natural fit nappies. During the day the nappies were fine but at night they consistently leaked meaning I had to change all of Eward’s clothes, sleeping bag and bed sheets. It’s not only Huggies that have let us down. We’ve also tried Pampers Active Fit and Pampers Baby Dry without success. Last week three mornings in a row his nappy had leaked.
At 14 months Edward has two bottles during the day of 260ml, one after breakfast and one before bedtime. I think he drinks an average amount during the day, and I buy the correct range of nappies according to his weight. I check him constantly during the day and the problem is only at night. Although Edward is seemingly not bothered by his leaking nappy, I am. Fortunately he doesn’t seem to get nappy rash but I feel as though I’m constantly changing bedding and clothes.
So I would love to hear from anyone with a similar problem. Can you recommend a nappy brand? Do you change your child when they’re half asleep? Are nappies meant to last for 12 hours? Help please, before I look for sponsorship from a detergent company!
