    Marlene - the mandymac night nappy is a OSFA (5 - 25kg) which is a HUGE weight range. Most OFSM night nappies come with quite a bit of boosting. At the start of the weight range for that nappy (say 5kg) you might need JUST the nappy shell, and maybe a small booster, then keep adding more of the boosting as baby grows, and wees more. So i am not sure how much Jack weighs, or what his wetting style is, but i will take a stab in the dark, that he is a long way off 25kg (!!!) so would definately NOT need 100A% of the boosting that comes with a brand new MMN nappy.

    (i have no clue HOW MUCH of the boosting you used, but i'm putting this JUST IN CASE you got a wee bit over enthusisatic, and stuck in the whole darn lot!)

    wotbb: blueberry trainer and bumjumper made by me.

    anyone after flongies, i just saw a good range of Cheena bean flongies on the wahmania site, under Peep-o (store), some nice woolly soakers too.

    Marlene, i saw some nice longies wool at Sustainable Hemp Products, and there are stores on ozebaby that sell suitable wool to knit longies out of too.

    Maz - i'm so sorry to hear about your back pain, that's the pits.

    Brigsy - how excitement! you're getting close! you survived the fires, you can do anything!

    Kazbah - Happy 2nd birthday to Pip! Yeh!!

    Today i got to meet Teru and cuddle her little Dragon, such a cutie. Bilby slept thru most of the visit (argh! my child who normally is not into day naps!).

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA....that's me! Always over enthusiastic!! Yep, shoved the whole darn lot in, LOL. Will stream line it a bit next time, LOL.
    Anyway, on the plus side....there was no leaking, LOL. The wee didn't it even make it to the outer layer of the nappy...hehehe.

    Jess....I can't wait either...just hope I'm fast enough to get something!

    I'm really hoping some fluff will arrive at the PO Box today.

    WOJB....itti bitti delish snap in, lime. First time. What a gorgeous nappy, lovely fit!

    I want to go fluff shopping too. When is the WW stocking? Might have to do some research. I have some money in paypal and the fees to transfer it to the bank would take a decent chunk out of it

    FIL is coming up to help DH to do the housework. That should be interesting. 2 blokes doing my housework, the place will be a shambles!! Nothing will be where it belongs, I bet. Dont know how long he is staying, probably until someone goes nuts or he wants to go home, or I have my CS. Might have to print the nappy washing instructions and stick them to the WM for FIL. I am looking forward to Wednesday - I dont have a pain free anything right now. Laying down hurts, sitting up hurts (and clunks - OUCH) moving to the toilet (the pic of in the gallery shows how short that distance is) hurts, AND I have taken Pain relief almost an hour ago so it should have kicked in by now Anyone want to finish this pg for me and let me have a few days of being normal again? I am over it!! I guess it is revenge for not getting much MS.

    Made sure DH put the pink ribbon nappy in Em's bag (he did it last night when I told him about MD's surgery) so I hope daycare use it while the op is happening!!

    Morning all

    Jess - can't remember the time frame, its been a while since we've needed to use panadol - my girl isnt' that whingy from her teething, so we don't really use anything here.

    Not much else is happening! Well apart from the fact I'm trying to convince DS that his dummy is "broken".. hehe

    WOTB's: Still night nappies. Even though she didn't have a night nappy available last night, so I had to improvise. She's outpeeing the BBB's at night now - so have to use some of his night nappies for her. Although, now I need the Green Kids for daycare... arggh.. maybe I need more night nappies.. hahhaha

    **waves hands** hello to all my new friends on facebook! lol

    i am going to do stash by stash pics and put them up on FB I use all the same ones together so when they are clean i will add them

    i am hoping for fluff today - my very last ww custom.... jess you are going to LOOOVE it but for all my different customs i would suggest genessa forge, sugar shots and wddlewuns... or bundles of buns. email them (but dont expect a response from sugar shots for a lil while on her blog it says her pc is broken) and ask them if they can send you their embroidery designs, and check out their galleries for their styles. If you are getting one extra special custom you need to make sure the fit will be right! BIzy Bee does shimmer on her nappies too

    other fluff news - well, pre wash is over, better go put the detergent in and get the dry ones off the line!

    wohb - abby gro slushie custom

    Question for the moo goo users out there... do you use it every nappy change? Or only when its a bit red? DD keeps getting this nappy rash at the moment, which I have been using sudocream on (either with a liner in the MCN or in a sposie), but it just keeps coming back. My DH is blaming cloth, I really hope he isn?t right. I personally think it might have to do with the massive amount of teething poo that she is doing at the moment... any thoughts?

    Kellie - if DD has rash (which is only ever because she is teething - DS is the same) then I use moogoo at every change. Otherwise, I just whack some on when changing their night nappy in the morning cos they were in it for so long.

    Long time no post, can't keep up with all you chatterbox's, been busy working on something special

    What are you all using for Night Nappies?

    So far my little girl is out wetting,
    snoozywun, BBB mega boosted, Wildchild Super NN(just).

    I've tried lotus (thanks KItt3en for teasing :P) and that works a treat but not available atm
    GF super night nappy works a treat as well but the fit isn't right on her so it will sometimes leak at the top cause I can't do the waist up properly, so they are soon to be sold.

    What else is out there for pee machines?

    My poor little man has a rash! Well, its not even really a rash...I don't know how to describe it...without being gross, LOL. He is really red..but only right around his sphincter (spelling?) it doesn't spread any further. When I wipe his bottom there is blood on the wipes The skin is all broken I think it may be due to teething, not sure. He was a whingy velcro baby yesterday, so not sure if that was due to teething or a sore bottom.

    I was going to go and get some moo goo today (our local Amcal chemist stock it) but want to make sure it will help at this late stage (bleeding) or should I get something else and use lots of liners? Short on money at the moment so don't want to buy it if it won't work as its VERY exxy!!!

    I forgot to ask...which one of the moogoo creams is best for nappy rash?? The soothing MSM cream or the Eczema and Psoriasis Balm for Fungal and Yeast Based Skin Conditions (is nappy rash a fungal condition?).

    Marlene - I use the soothing cream, and it helps even if her butt is bleeding.
