As we use two part nappies for night times (this reduces the chances of a leak) we need to use a wrap along with the nappy itself. Our night nappies are Tots Bots Bamboozle Stretches and our night wraps are Tots Bots Flexiwraps and Motherease Airflow wraps. I’m happy to use either wrap but am currently preferring the airflows as they seem to provide a slightly better fit as Eli heads towards the top of the size range for both.
Since I can’t think of cons for either wrap (for night time use the only real criteria is that they don’t leak) a brief list of the pros for each:
- Tots Bots Flexitots
- very soft flexible fabric;
- good choice of colours and patterns;
- trim fitting – not so much a consideration for a night nappy but useful if they are needed for days.
- Motherease Airflow
- poppers on waist and legs to get the best fit;
- choice of plain white or a handful of other prints (recently updated);
- make his bum look massive which I find really cute.
The airflows are a bit bulky when used with a day nappy but it doesn’t matter for me at night.
The vital statistics for our wraps:
How many do we have?
Currently in use I have 5 – two flexiwraps and three airflows. When Eli outgrows these I have the same again plus a few more for him to use.
Which sizes do we have?
We have size 1 and 2 flexiwraps and medium and large airflows. Eli is currently using size 1 and medium (both go up to 20lb).
How long would we be able to use just this part of our stash?
I have enough for our night nappies in our current sizes but will have a few spare when he moves up.
How often do these wraps need to be changed?
They last for 12+ hours overnight and I don’t tend to get any wicking unless I leave the night nappy on too long in the morning.
How easy are these wraps to wash?
We wash all our nappies and wraps together and don’t need to do anything special for these. I just need to make sure that the aplix is done up on the flexiwraps.
How long do they take to dry?
Both types of wraps air dry very quickly either indoors or out.
