A very useful new product
Thursday, 18 January 2018 | Ruth
I've bought these for a tall 5 year old with special needs. Until last summer I managed to squeeze him into the largest available cloth nappies, but finally gave up when he outgrew the waterproof covers. I've been reluctantly using disposables since then, so when I came across these adjustable pocket nappies, designed with an older child in mind, I was interested to find out more.
I emailed Jane to ask advice and she sent a very helpful reply, on the strength of which I ordered one nappy to see how it went. I am really pleased; although they are quite pricey, given that you have to put inserts in as well, they are a good design and best of all they are reasonably slim. Clothes for 5+ year olds aren't designed to accommodate bulky nappies and I had been finding this a real problem before. I have used a mixture of a folded bamboo insert and a small microfibre pad (I have read that this combination both soaks up wee rapidly and also absorbs it well) and so far this has worked well and has not added bulk. If I were buying new inserts I'd probably try the hemp ones which are also said to be slim and absorbent.
The service from the Little Nappy Shop has been fantastic: helpful advice, no postage charge, competitive prices, speedy dispatch and points awarded against future purchases. I have nothing but praise for them.
