Would a medium be better on a 4yo? I was looking at them today.

Yeah I'd definitely say a medium, they run really large.

Thanks everyone, I'm going to have a good look through and get back to some of you later in the week. I may well start off with a couple of testers, and then come back for more a little bit further down the line, so if I don't pick you first time round, I may well still need you later.

Oooohh - just saw this, my Miss 5 1/2 is still wet every morning. We are trying taking her to the toilet at 9pm (by 9.30 we have misses the wee :? ) she is a very heavy sleeper. She is in standard size 5 clothes and we are using the dry nights 4-7 range.

If you need another tester she might be willing to try :hide:

My nearly 6year old is on the improve (amazing the power of a club penguin membership bribe...) but with regards to those using drynites etc, I recommend going up to the larger size i.e. 7-11 year olds as the absorbency increases (and we use Pams as drynites give DS a nasty rash on the top of his bottom). Dare I say on a cloth nappy forum that Kimberley Clark will send out a sample of larger size drynites if you ring them and tell them that the ones for the child's age are leaking.
Good luck with your trial capelbach, I found with my DS that cloth nappies were no longer effective at night time from about the age of 2 - he was such a heavy wetter that I couldn't get the right amount of absorbency in without creating a huge lump in his nappy that would squash his penis.

Damn it!! Why did I miss this??? I have a 12 year old who wets the bed still and I'm looking for something to go on the bed that actually works. Still need a tester?

I can't afford a brolly sheet, and not sure if it would be big enough to cover the area he wets anyway, so I was thinking of patching together some PUL I have here and putting an absorbent layer of some kind between it and a cotton layer, but an actual, properly designed sheet would be fab!

Oops - or was it a nappy type thing you're testing? God anything that stops me from having to wash the bedding, duvet and pillow would be fab!
