second night update page 2 ;)
Since I have a few more diapers now I thought I'd try cloth overnight again. So tonight she is in a BG free time with a FB minky insert under the flaps.. its all I have for doublers right now. Its still pretty trim set up so hoping it holds. She been leaking through her sposies overnight lately..

A few action shots

I hope it works for you!! When DS was that size we would unsnap the rise and for some reason that seemed to work better so there is less compression on the inserts and it doesn't squeeze out the liquid if that makes sense? Fingers crossed!!

Re: attempting cloth tonight
she is 2.5 it works GREAT!!!! SHe wore the diaper from around 9pm-7amish nursing to bed once in the middle of the night and gain in the early morning.. outside was super dry not even a little wet. Even in a good sposie night she is often a little wet around the inner thighs... the microfiber and the minky insert were all soaked but not completely saturated (so I think it could have held more) but the top was still pretty dry. DD skin looked great which was my biggest worry. The diaper had that I've been on all night ammonia-pee smell but nothing knock you down icky burning smell I rinsed it out with my diaper sprayer before tossing into the pail.. So how it washes is really all I need to still see about. I'm excited I might be able to go back to cloth most night and just save a sposie for wash night.. (I have this thing about using cloth while diapers are washing)

Re: attempting cloth tonight
So, you used a BumGenius Freetime? Isn't that an AIO diaper? So, you just added some inserts to it? Where did you put the inserts, exactly?...

Educate me.. I'm going to try this with my toddler!

Re: attempting cloth tonight
everything is better with pictures! SO this is one setup for tonight...

the diaper a BG freetime and a minky insert
inside view

the inside of the BG has two suade cloth topped microfiber soakers that are attached on one end so can fold out like so (great in the wash and dry fast with out compromising on assorbancy) excuse the darker phots I need to recharge my camera..

I lay in minky insert under those flaps like so it fits nice and snug

fold the flaps back over and I use a flushable liner so this is how it looks when all done

side "bulk" view for a nighttime set up its actually pretty trim...

Hope this helps
