Re: Overnight cloth vs disposables

Any one else struggle with this? I'm tempted to use disposables at night simply because they absorb more and I can try and get him back to sleep with little interaction/no diaper change. Also, it's a bit of a process to change the overnight diaper, making sure everything is tucked in and in place! I love cloth, but my sleep is becoming more important!

Current overnight cloth set up:

GMD prefold wrapped around softbums super dry touch pod or twinkletoes overnight zorb insert...thirsties duo cover.

Have tried and failed with massive leakage (around the legs):

Softbums cover with super dry touch pod and mini pod doubler/prefold, tri-folded
GMD prefold with either softbums cover or thirsties duo cover
From what I remember from that time of my sons life it was his heaviest wetting time. I would just go do disposables until he's eating more solids and go back to your current set up. I am all in favor of more sleep over diaper preference!
