    Default Special needs Pads/ Nappies- what do you use? Advice please

    Hello all
    we are currently using a combination of incontinent aids
    tena flex small - eenee large infant napies as boosters ( they are great)
    And when home and at night. Kids size 12-14 stay Dry - easy fit Reusable nappies.

    This all works well, but she has lost a lot of weight and are now too big
    we tried the moltex size 6 baby nappy and HUGGIES jnr and they are about half an inch short on the tabs!

    Anyone know of an infants nappy that fits larger than HUGGIES Jnr?
    Pull ups and dry nites are not suitable because he is totally physically dependant
    i know there is a brand Libero size 7 but they are not in Aus
    thank you

    Hi there... we use Baby Love Jnr... they are wider than the Huggies. I've been going through the opposite when my girl gained a heap of weight. She went from Crawler to Junior in 6mths... I've tried Huggies, Woolies Select, Aldi's, Snugglers, Home brand, Pampers and Baby Love... and the Baby Love are the only ones that fit her now.

    Only just saw this thread - maybe be a bit late but anyway!

    We use molicare nappies for our oldest DD, I order them through Brightsky - they have lots of different types and free delivery if you order online.

    The one's I prefer are Molicare Premium Air Active, we get the smallest size, X Small, suitable for a waist measurement of 40 - 60 cm.

    Another online ordering site is Intouch and they will send you samples if you email them the ones you want to try. I ended up going through their website and any nappy that sounded like it might fit I wrote down the details & then emailed them all off. We got about 6 or 7 samples from them.

    Goodluck!

    Have you considered reusable ones? I know everyone has their different opinions on this, but I have found some great ones. The are called super undies. My son is 7 and is between the medium and the large.

    Hi there. Thanks for your replys
    Flyawayfree- I do occasionally use
    Reusables- I think it's a great Idea

    But the sizes we need don't have side snaps! :-( how do you find them though? They look good
    Thank you

    Happy world, not sure if the sizing will be right by my 6yr old, 18kg, 100cm daughter uses babybeehinds extra large magicalls with a cover just in case. They hold so much and are snap nappies so you dont need to pull them up.

    We also use super undies nighttime. DD is in sz M at the moment. I double boost them and they dont leak through

    LivinOnAPreyer- thanks for that
    We just tried the BBH extra large and they did fit ( on the last snap)
    And we're great but about 2 inches short in the rise.
    Really dissapointing as they are lovely .
    :-(
