Okay normally I use cloth for my ds... but we never found a good combo for night time that didn't leak.
Well now he is leaking out of his disposables so bad that his sleeper is wet from the chest all the way down to the ankles!
Does anyone have any ideas on types of disposables that won't do this? We were using the cheap Walmart ones for night time... then I tried Pampers thinking the name brand would work better.... NOPE!
Help! He isn't sleeping at night because he is wet all the time!! I need sleep!
I had the same problem with my eldest son when he was about 12 months old. I called the Huggies hotline (that was the brand we used), and the lady suggested that we use Huggies girl nappies at nighttime. Apparently, the extra padding is in different spots for "boy" nappies and "girl" nappies, and the girl ones have better padding all over, whereas the boy ones have most of the absorbancy at the front. So, she said the girl ones would give better absorbancy at night. We tried it, and it seemed to work pretty well.
Don't know if that would help or not :? I remember how frustrating it is though to wake up to a cold, wet, shivery baby :?

I make my own diapers... I have mostly flannel fitteds... adn some prefolds that I got online. I also have some AIO's that I made.
Most of my covers are either fleece or PUL....
I have found one thing that works with cloth but then I can't ge any pj's on him and then he is cold....
Try LUVS...I used them with Angela when nothing else worked and have always recommended them to my daycare parents in the past...I've never had a problem with LUVS unless ofcourse the baby is actually sick and a leak can't be helped...Otherwise LUVS deserves a trophy IMO :wink:

My DS had the same problem. He peed a gallon at nighttime! The bed would be soaked! The only brand that worked on him was Pampers and then plus I would put a disposable liner under him. When girls pee it is kind of distributed throughout the diaper but little boys have straight aim :lol:. When he was a baby they didn't have nighttime diapers and no other brand would work on him. Stephanie :D

Pampers has a special diaper just for overnights...it is super! It doesn't feel or look any different than the regular diapers...but it absorbs a river! It has cleared up the leaking problem for many families I know! Definatly worth the money!

We had this problem with our first ds. The only thing we found to work was Huggies Overnites.
This happened with my DS. The only way I got around this was to put a plastic pilcher over his disposable. That kept him dry all night.
I would also go to bed at around 10pm at the time, so I would have to go into his room and change the nappy before bed (he wouldn't wake up during this either LOL) and I found that helped combined with the pilcher. He was just a pee king :wink:
We used expensive nappies/diapers too.

I used my massive cloth system last night and he slept all night!
Dh went out and got some huggies overnights so I will try that tonight...
He wakes up because he is wet not before he gets wet...

Hmm...we've used Pampers since day 1 with both. BUT I know some Moms who swear by Sam's club brand as leak-proof. Cheap but GREAT. Just another idea. ~Kerri

Out of curiosity, what combos did you try for night-time cloth diapering? I have probably the heaviest wetter in the free world, so maybe I could be of help?
What works for us is a hemp fitted diaper (which I made by trimming down a prefold), an indian prefold tri-folded inside, a strip of fleece on top so he feels dry, and then a wool soaker (which helps absord excess pee pee).
ETA: I almost forgot, now that its colder at night I either dress him in a pajama shirt and pair of wool or fleece longies, or I use a nylon diaper cover so he can wear his pajama pants.

Actually it isn't a matter of combo for the cloth it is that his jammies don't fit over the cover that I have that works really well... I use fleece stacinators for night time.
I have plans to knit him some longies when I am done with the pair I am making for the baby....
Until then Huggies Overnights worked!
