What to do when fitteds and wool don't work?
 
I've used fitteds and wool or fleece coves overnight for 2 wks because my 13 mo old was peeing out of sposies.I got some bububebe and sbish fitteds and stuffed them with and. extra mf insert, an infant prefold, and a flip trainer pad (just what I had on hand, LOL). Dd could barely close her legs! I also topped it with a fleece liner because the wetness bothers her. Even with all of this I have to get up at 2am to change her because she is soaked or uncomfortable! Any ideas?

how long is she sleeping? When ds was littler we always had to change at night no matter what, he was a 14 hr a night sleeper. i went to our cding store and they recommended babykicks hemp inserts, they are awesomely absorbant for how trim they are, if i were you i would stack 3 of them in a pocket and try that to see how long you can go, they are seriously not bulky at all and dont have compression leaks like mf does.

She still wakes up every 3-4 hrs at night :(. She wears stay dry pockets and aio during the day, so I think she's especially sensitive to wetness!

I use 4.0s stuffed with a thirsties hemp prefold and babykicks hemp insert. but my boys go to bed in a regular pocket with microfiber then I change them the first time they wake up to this combo, if not they are soaked by morning, they nurse about 3 times a night.

That's a LOT of padding to over-pee.

Have they been prepped beyond believe? To their MAX absorbancy?

I think it's actually too much so it's leaking. I would not use microfiber at all for nights if you have a heavy wetter. I would try something like a pocket so she could be dry with a Flip organic and 2 Hemp Babies doublers. Maybe then out the wool or fleece PJs over that.

Don't stuff the sbish fitteds. They will be very absorbent after five washes. I think you are over complicating it.

I tried the flip organic inserts and sold them because they didn't work well. Maybe I just neeed some doublers?

These are older fitteds bought off of fsot. Is there anything I need to do to prep them?
