help me find a nighttime solution

was putting my baby girl (8months) in double stuffed fuzzibunz at night....she is consistently leaking now...

here is what i have that i'd like to try first then i'd be open to buying something else....

prefolds, flip covers, 1 flip insert, 3 fuzzibunz, 2 bumgenius

any ideas??? oh and i'm going to knit her a wool cover here shortly...also have a wool sweater i could felt to make a wool pull on cover.

thanks!

If you felt your sweater it will loose stretch. So you'd better off with a wrap, IMO

It may be tricky if possible to make pockets work for nights, particularly if you have a heavy wetter.
Your best bet is wool with a prefold or fitted.

Re: help me find a nighttime solution

i think knit wool is your best bet.. I double stuff my FB with hemp joey insert & econappi bamboo doubler and DS was wet only after 6 hours and the inserts not even fully wet.. I think it's because DS is a tummy sleeper and the pee is sliding down before it get absorb.. anyway, I changed him to his shorties with BG that has only 1 joey insert and he stay dry until morning .. I like use pocket with wool, it gives double protection

I find that felted wool is more buletproof than knit wool.

Microfleece or seudecloth liner should help to spread moisture through all insert.

Dd is a heavy wetter and I've tried several different things to no avail. Finally, I found it. MotherEase Sandies (bamboo) with a stay dry liner, hemp doubler, and ME airflow cover.

I have always used a Happy Heiny's at night, with the regular large insert it comes with and an extra hemp insert. I've never had a leak.

Work's everytime and it's all we use (minus the hemp doubler we don't need one of those )
