“ Brand: Kooshies / Type: Nappies „
Our daughter is a pretty heavy wetter. She seems to think she has an obligation to wee for all of Britain, never mind England. This means that if she is not wearing enough protection, her nappies leak. A lot of people boost nappies with small terries, but in an All in One or shaped two piece nappy design, that can be way to bulky an inserty and still close the nappy. Kooshies has a solution for that. They came up with slender cotton pads that fit inside a nappy and boost its absorbency without bulk. And if you are using a Kooshies nappy, these slide right inside the inner booster pocket. The boosters are soft and thin by design, and made of cotton flannel. They are hour glass shaped so make a good fit unfolded for a boy or folded over for a girl as the curves allow a comfortable fit between the legs and no overhang outside the nappy or the the wrap (if using a two piece system). I have even used three of these at a time to boost our daughter for a sleep and they fit comfortably. I have also used these to boost our terries when i use my squares. They worked great with these too. One thing you do need to remember is to remove them from the Kooshies booster pocket for washing so they get cleaned properly, and dried! I forgot a few times and they washed OK but took longer to dry when left inside the nappy pocket. Another important point is to remember NOT to use commercial fabric softeners such as Bounce on these as it puts a coating on the fibres and severely reduces the absorbency. Instead, if you really feel a need for extra softness, add a bit of white vinegar to your rinse water. It not only will add softness without compromising the performance o f the boosters (and the nappy) but will help return the cloth to the proper PH. All in all, these are a very economical way to add a bit of aded absorbency to reusable nappy systems of all sorts, and not just Kooshies! They are available from stockists such as Mothercare and also many on
and many online cloth nappy stockists such as Lollipop and Twinkle Twinkle. I understand Lollipop will even send a rep. around to let you view samples of popular cloth nappies and related products so if you hesitate on spending the dosh out on cloth nappies and boosters before actually SEEING the merchandise, I would check them out and finger the goods first so you can see for yourself!
For extra absorbency, these can be used with infant and toddler nappies. For use when a thicker nappy is required - when a baby is sleeping through the night or perhaps teething.
