# of night wakings - sposies vs. cd

Call me crazy, but it seems to me on the nights I put ds (4 months) in an overnight sposie, he wakes up like 3 times. On BG nights, he only wakes up once.

Now, I have been working on his sleep, and trying to cut out some feedings over the past few weeks, and I've been somewhat successful, getting him to wake only once. Then we had a few nights of regression (perhaps started by 1 night in a sposie?) and then we got back to a happier night routine. Then last night, because I was too lazy to assemble a BG, I stuck him in a Huggies overnight, and BAM! 3 night wakings.

He leaks from sposies if he eats all night, but since he'd done a few nights with only 1 feeding, I thought he'd be fine in a sposie. It's like they trigger his appetite, or make him not sleep as well? Maybe there's something magical about the microsuede in the BGs that keeps him comfortable?

I anticipate another night or 2 with multiple wakings, but that's it. No more sposies at night.

Lucky for you! We have the opposite problem. DS just sleeps better in a sposie. I'm working on getting him used to BG at night - just have to wait for our washer to get fixed to get back into the routine!

Same here, he sleeps longer in disposables and wakes less. I'm going to try a Drybees Night Diaper next month when I can afford it

We also have the opposite problem. I haven't put my 10 month old in cloth overnight in months because he was up 3-5 times in cloth but only once or not at all in sposies.
