My week of nappies was a success. I re elasticated three of my smallest (and oldest) nappies and made a new fitted nappy for J. I had to explain to P that these nappies were for a very small baby, smaller than our baby and that I would use them when we had more babies. P was very taken with this idea and declared that we would have four babies (to be fair she can only say 2, 4 and 8).
I used the wee weka small nappy pattern, which you can find here. Its my favourite small pocket nappy pattern, nice and straightforward, and a good fit. I prefer to use velcro because I find it gives a much more versatile fit for when babies are smaller.
I also made a fitted nappy with the larger wee weka pattern for J to use at night. I like fitteds for night nappies because they are a much better fit for the absorbency than pockets, which have the absorbency all in the middle. I find that pockets tend to sit strangely on J and leak when stuffed, whereas fitteds don't have the same problems with bulk. I didn't take a picture of it though because it is a bit ugly. I recycled some bamboo from a previous nappy that just didn't really work.
