So last for the last 2 nights I have carried out challenge 4 which is
I was a little nervous about letting Jenson wear the Miosolo all night if I am honest, as I know that it is recommended that the nappy be changed every 2-4 hours during the day.
BUT to ensure a more absorbant nappy during the night you can add a MioBoost which is an extra cloth ‘pad’ which can be tucked inside the super absorbent core which should prevent any leakages during the night.
I didn’t add the mioboost Tuesday night, because Jenson’s disosable nappies never get very wet during the night since he stopped breast feeding, so I hoped that the Miosolo would not leak as a result of my decision!
|Make sure that nappy is securely on – it could be on for a few hours!|
As I have mentioned previously, Jenson has been ill this week and has not been sleeping through the night. The night before last, my first night of trialling the reusable nappy at night, he woke up at some unearthly hour and was not happy at all!!! Try as I might, I wasn’t able to soothe or settle him, so I ended up checking his nappy to see if maybe it was wet and was proving to be uncomfortable for him. I need not have worried, although a little wet, the Miosolo had not leaked and had performed well. However, having removed the nappy I replaced it with a disposable (sorry!) because the other real ones were not completely dry from having been washed last thing before I went to bed.
BUT last night I did add the mioboost in the hopes that
1). Jenson might sleep through the night
2). If he achieved the above I didn’t want the nappy to be wet and maybe leak ( he had swallowed a fair bit of bath water as he insisted in trying to crawl in the bath, and in doing so took in some water!)
Believe it or not ( I myself am still in shock after more than a week of getting up in the middle of the night for quite some time) Jenson slept until 5am!! So I changed his nappy and it hadn’t leaked at all and to be fair it wasn’t that wet either.
Thank you xx
