First night in cloth!!
We'll see how it goes. I may have overdone it with my 20 month old, but I didn't want him to wake up all wet :giggle2:

He has 2 pad folded flats (which I've been amazed with for daytime) and an infant prefold tucked in the middle for a little extra absorbency. A fleece liner on top so he stays comfy, and all this under a WAHM cover, and a wool soaker. I know, I know, probably not needed, but I really wanted to try out my new wool and I haven't had a chance to get a snappi or boingo yet (as I'm new to cloth) and I couldn't figure out how to keep the flats on him without using the PUL cover. So I just used both.

Hopefully I can get a snappi or boingos soon then I can ditch the PUL for nighttime.

Does this sound like it will work? or do you think I'll wake up to a wet little guy?

Also, have my 3 year old in Nighttime Super Undies instead of his normal pull up that he wears to bed. We'll see how those hold up as well :)

Lol sounds like me the first night I tried it!!! Ds still woke up though because he couldn't move around in all that bulk :) so I went the other route and have been trying to see how little I can get away with!

Please update for us! Very interested to see how the super undies worked for you, I'm starting to eye some trainers :thumbsup:

Yay! How'd it go mama? First night is always a little intimidating. Lol

Re: First night in cloth!!
It went great! I was right about going overboard with my 20 month old. Last night we just did 2 pad folded flats in a cover and it was fine. Tonight I'm gonna try bamboo and try to cut down on some of the bulk. For my 3 year old I really like the super undies but we still had a leak :( last night I topped it with a wool soaker and it was fine. I'm gonna try bamboo with him also, add a bamboo doubler and see how that works.
