Why charcoal inserts are seriously good - Baba+Boo

Why charcoal inserts are seriously good

This week's guest blog comes from Susan who has been trying our charcoal inserts. She insists she has 'nothing but good things to say about charcoal' - read on to see how impressed she has been with it.

My LO has been wetting really heavily recently to the point where I have picked her up from being sat in her buggy for a relatively short time, and she is soaking wet through, literally leaving a wet mark behind on the seat.  It was worrying me really as her nappy had only been on for 2 hours, surely she shouldn't be so wet?  We can't be too far away from potty training so I guess she is holding more than previously and doing one big wee, however, this was soaking through.

Like a few children I know, she just isn’t that bothered about being wet - she knows when she has done a poo as she tells me but wet seems ok for her which can’t be very comfortable. We have even tried her with a bamboo insert behind the microfibres!

Well anyway, moving on, she had 2 charcoal inserts in the other day and she had it on from 7am til 3! (Not that I would normally leave her that long - just testing!). Fabulous I thought! I tried her overnight with 2 charcoal and 1 bamboo booster inserted as a liner so just sat over the top of the nappy, touching her skin – she was fine but then same again the night after and she was a bit wet but just on her tummy so I have tried opening the nappy up fully to see if that makes a difference. You can put the bamboo boosters inside the pocket too which I did while we were on an outing today, along with a charcoal.

The charcoals come out of the washer almost dry and literally take about an hour on a radiator airer before they are good to go again.  That’s a big plus for me because the bamboo ones take far too long. A big thumbs up for charcoal, we will not be defeated!

Have you used charcoal and how has it changed the nappy changes for you?
