Howdy yall. Before I got my mitts on the lovely bambino diaper, I would stuff an Abena M4 with a size 6 pamper and get a nice increase in absorbency. I have the house to myself pretty soon, and I want a stupidly absorbent and cute diaper to spend my time in. The waterproof plastic cover of the M4 separates from the rest of the diaper very easily. To stuff the M4, I would take the waterproof cover off just enough so there was a hole I could put the pamper into. I would then sew the hole up, which had the added benefit of holding the pamper in place.
What is the best way to do this to a Bambino Teddy? The waterproof cover doesn't come off the front very easily, and I don't want to cut the landing strip with all the Teddies... they are too cute!
Well since no one has answered I just went ahead and did my best. I sliced the bambino from the inside this time, right above the SAP layer, taking special care to not damage the waterproof layer. I removed the elastics from the pamper. I then tried to get the SAP layer away from the bottom of the diaper. However, I encountered something I have not ever seen before: The bambino diapers have a second layer of SAP, held together by curved, stretched out hourglass piece of material. I believe that this material is what keeps the bambino from clumping, which is a feature I really like about this diaper. I had to snip this material to fit the pamper stuffer in, and I dislodged some SAP from the top layer. Because I love the smell of baby powder, I sprinkled a little bit inside of the hole as well so that lovely scent permeates hopefully permeates. I will see how this goes. I bought a case of the bambinos, so I will do my best to perfect my stuffing methods, to see how I can fit in a stuffer without damaging the diapers looks or anti-clumping abilities, and report back!
