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!
