Stink in night diapers--normal or not?

I have three in diapers at night right now, two in diapers during the day. Two have "toddler pee" and the youngest is getting there, now that he is eating more.

The diapers are all stinky though, when peed in. The oldest and youngest use cloth at night, and it smells kind of bad in the morning. The middle one doesn't use cloth at night, due to sensitive skin, but does during the day, and his stink too.

It's a really strong urine smell. Do I need to strip my diapers, or something? Is this normal for their age? If I do need to strip them, how?

Re: Stink in night diapers--normal or not?

Is it just stinky pee smell or barnyard or sting your eyes ammonia? If either of the latter your diapers probably aren't getting clean enough.

Stripping is just deeper cleaning diapers that aren't getting clean regularly. So yes, but the also look into what do do/use on a regular basis and what might be different or need to be changed to get them clean.

If it's a similar smell that what the toliet/bathroom smells like after a large strong morning pee, than it may just their pee.
