Re: Diaper for a 4 year old at night?
I have a 6yo still in night diapers. It is bulky, but I have had great success with a Motherease ToddleEase, stuffed with a tri-folded prefold (GMD red edge fit perfectly), with a Disana wool cover on top. This has worked better than even sposies, which he was peeing out of at least 3x per week.
We average about 1 accident per month with this combo, and from what I can tell, it is usually him peeing in the early morning straight up and out of the diaper, as it is never fully saturated when the leaks happen. I have a feeling he is getting an erection at some point, his penis ends up pointing up, and then when he pees, the pee just shoots straight up and out of the diaper.
