hey evveryone, just wondering if anyone can still get poo pouch nappies from babylove? or have they totally replaced them with thr driwave ones? and how is everyone finding them? a friend and i at different times have noticed they tend to be leakier than the poo pouch ones, and have leaked up the front.(not fun with a number 3! sick.gif )
also, from what ive been reading about 4month old sleep routines ( such as they are), my ds seems to be very atypical. he sleeps 12 hours at night, no wakeups until between 7 and 8am.( i know, plz dont flame me! my dd was a bad sleeper, i promise!) but he sleeps a LOT through the day as well. the other day, foe example, he slept from 4pm until 7am the next day.i checked on him a few times but didnt want to wwake him. and today, he's slept from 9am until a few mins ago.(its 3:05pm).(will get him after this!) i know he's been teething lately and i suspect he's a kid that will sleep things off when he's not well but is this too much sleep? other days he sleeps and wakes for an hour each, with a bigger nap of 2-3 hours in the rv. should i be concerned?TIA

Can't help with the nappies, I think they're all dri wave unfortunately.

DD at that age slept basically the same 7-7 overnight then a nap in the morning, and one in the arvo. Whenever she was teething, having a growth spurt or sick she would sleep basically the whole day; just her way of coping I think.

She's 19 months now and still sleeps 7-7 overnight and then has a 2-3 hour nap in the day. She is very, very energetic so I think she needs the sleep now. Her response to sick/sore etc is still to go to bed!
