To see your fabric choices, click http://www.etsy.com/listing/80620058/fabrics-available. Please allow one week for me to sew when ordering from this listing; most orders are completed faster, but just in case. This listing is for a set of 6....feel free to mix and match prints to equal your 6 :)

Upon checkout, just leave me a note of which print #'s you choose. Also, let me know if you would like them to be 100% cotton (cotton for all 3 layers) or microfleece against the skin. The biggest difference is that the 100% cotton ones are thinner, which works better if your tubie is tighter against the skin. My tester families have reported that neither style sticks to the skin. I've had several requests for ULTRA THIN and that is now an option. Ultra thin huggers are made from 2 layers of cotton. They are still very absorbent, but fit in tighter places. Because they are only 2 layers, they are a bit floppy, but my tester families say it's not an issue.

Cotton huggers will have a white snap against the skin while microfleece backed huggers will have a colored snap against the skin to help you know which you are using if you choose a mixture (see the last picture for an example)

Tubie Huggers are washable absorbent pads that "hug" your child's G-tube or button. Wash with your regular laundry in a small mesh laundry bag, but do not use softener because it will cause them to repel fluid. They are made of 3 layers. You now have a choice of 100% cotton (all 3 layers are cotton resulting in a thinner Hugger) or microfleece against the skin (cotton outer and hidden with the layer closest to the skin being microfleece) I use industrial poly resin snaps.. The total size is approximately 2 1/2".
