Re: A cloth diaper to put over a disposable?

When we did disposable overnights the only thing that worked was a huggies overnights, and most nights he needed a cover over those. If she's two, had you tried at least a little limiting fluids in the evening, having her potty right before bed and then put her down? That really helped with ds, he sleeps 12-13 hours too. After that, I'd try either a fleece or wool cover over the sposie, or maybe have her sleep in the sposie, with a thirsties cover, and then the fleece pants on top.

Definitely go for an overnight sposie. DD is almost 2.5 in sposies and also sleeps almost 13 hours at night, but she's not a heavy wetter. Also, maybe try and not give her liquids for 30-45 mins before bed. Then change her when you put her to bed, which you probably already do.

1) Get a wool/fleece soaker for over the sposie (or wool/fleece longies or shorties as pajama bottoms)
2) switch to overnight HUGGIES sposies (work so much better than the pampers, or overnight pullups)
3) you can buy sposie diaper doublers at babies r us (almost like a maxi pad you put in the diaper to add absorbancy)

what always worked for us is an overnight in a size bigger so if she's a 4, then buy size 5, you may even be able to try a 6

Re: A cloth diaper to put over a disposable?

I put a Flip cover over sposies when we fly, because I don't want a poo explosion on clothes ... if you wanted more absorbency I'd suggest anything from a pad-folded flat or prefold, to a hemp doubler.

Huggies overnights are good, but if you have babies r us nearby go for fisher price happy nights diapers. Cheap but only available there. There was a short while when my DS was soaking thru his best cloth and nursing in the night. Wed both be pee soaked and miserable if it weren't for those happy nights dipes. To any other mamas in a similar situation, note that the need for overnight strength sposie only lasted 2-3months till we nursed one less time at night!! It gets better and baby stays drier eventually.

We do a Huggies Overnite with a disposable Flip insert added inside and a wool soaker over the whole thing. It's the only combination that has worked for us and we tried everything.

I'd go with wool over top... I think 2... maybe 3 would be enough... and it's breathable and doesn't have to be pricey... you can get upcycled wool soakers on HC and Etsy for the same price as a lot of the covers out there
