Best nighttime diaper for heavy wetter?

So DD is 6 months old and absolutely soaks through everything I've tried (fuzzibuns, flats, doubled-up prefolds, homemade fitteds with cotton soakers and microfiber doublers...). I hate changing her in the middle of the night because she wakes up and then it can take an hour to get her back to sleep. So what is your favorite nighttime diaper?

Not sure how big she is, mine are big babies so this might sound like a weird suggestion. Super undies makes a nighttime underpants that holds a lot and has room to stuff more inserts. Not sure how small their small runs, but if you have a big kiddo it's a least worth looking up the size info.

My DD was in 18mo clothes at 6mos bc of her booty.:-)

This. Our DS is a super soaker. We use Sbish snapless - use both doublers, fold bigger one in half in the wet zone, add an extra cotton doubler and a wool liner. Cover with wool. Perfect combo, soaks up a ton. The other day he slept longer than normal and 14.5hrs later the bed was still dry. Diaper was soaked but with wool over top we were good

Re: Best nighttime diaper for heavy wetter?

thirsties duo fitted with a flip organic insert stuffed inside under a bummis pull on cover. the diaper is big but it works great for my 14 month old heavy wetter who still nurses at night.

Re: Best nighttime diaper for heavy wetter?

I have not had to resort to sbish with wool but I have heard incredible things about that combo! Its in the back of my head for if/when I have problems with my next one.

With stomach sleeping DD, before she was a toddler, this is what worked for her:
bumGenius stuffed with
Sandy's bamboo doubler, under a
Padfolded Hemp Babies flat, under a
Microfiber doubler (small).

Good luck!

If you have a fleece soaker or wool on hand, put it over your existing night dipe for now. It's the dream combination!
