Grovia biosoakers for overnight?

Are they absorbant enough?

I've given up on the ammonia problem with our night time diapers for the time being so we've been using sposies at night. I really don't like gel gunk in them and Grovia seems to be a less nasty option, but I'm not sure if they would keep DD dry.

Ive been able to do it, I DO change my DD atleast 1x in the night as she still nurses all night long and fills a diaper rather quick. I just change her when she wakes up to nurse.

I just stick one right on top of each other and it has held for overnight.

Re: Grovia biosoakers for overnight?

I had no problem with them overnight until my daughter was about 2... for DS, who is 9 months, I have no issues with them at all. GroVia also makes the BioDiaper, and when DD was outdoing the BioSoaker at night, I used those instead and they were great. Another thing I do with the BioSoaker is lay it inside a fitted or origami fold a flat over it, that way if anything escapes the BioSoaker, which is very very little and rarely, something catches it. As the vast majority goes into the BioSoaker, the flat or fitted are hardly damp and wash up easily.

Re: Grovia biosoakers for overnight?

I've had success with it. The biosoakers for us had one problem which was if they bunched in the crotch area they would leak. So I would lay them slightly off center/side by side for overnight. Similar to the PP, I realized that the perfect solution was a biosoaker in a BG elemental or flat and cover (or any other wider width diaper would do, I happened to like that the adhesive wasn't a problem on the cotton as it might be on a fleece material). That way if it did leak out the side or in the belly (DD is a belly sleeper) it was soaked up in the diaper. We gave up on overnights due to ammonia too. Our DD's skin was just too sensitive and no amount of rinsing, extra washing, hot water, boiling, bleach, etc or even just switching to flats at night worked consistently. She would get red or full blown blistering rashes. She is now only in diapers at night (disposables...) and cloth during some naps.
