GMD Workhorse diapers at night??

Has anyone tried the GMD Workhorse diapers at night?? I'm thinking of trying them as a nighttime diaper. My son sleeps 12 hours at night and is a heavy wetter. Do you think these would work?? or do you have a better suggestion?

Both of my girls soak right through them I even put a green edge on my 8 month old with a hemp doubler and had to change her in the middle of the night. They aren't super soakers either. Lately we have been using sposies at night, but I like a happy Heiny stuffed with 2 flats

Re: GMD Workhorse diapers at night??

When I use them during the day, I use brown edge on my son, but at night I sometimes put a green edge on him because it gives me room for extra stuffing. He's a heavy wetter and last night a green edge stuffed with a hemp doubler (the lay-in doubler that comes with Pooters) and a padfolded flat held him through the night.

This combination, with a Disana soaker over it, was HUGE. I prefer my Pooters hemp fitteds for night because they are more absorbent without needing to add so many doublers. But the hemp is definitely stinkier in the morning, so sometimes I just feel like using cotton at night.

I was able to do a green edge with a small pad folded flat with a disana or WCW with my 36 month old. It held him pretty well

Re: GMD Workhorse diapers at night??

I can use them on ds at night even without a doubler, but he is not a heavy wetter by any means. I usually add a small doubler anyway, just to be on the safe side. When dd (who was a heavy wetter) was in diapers,on a couple of occasions I used an Osocozy fitted with 2 thirsties hemp inserts and that just barely held her. IMO the workhorses are more absorbent than the Osocozies, so I would think that a workhorse would work if stuffed with a couple of good doublers. You might be better off just going with a diaper that is more specifically designed for night though.

What about a newborn or very young infant in yellow edges at night? I have 4 of those and was thinking of trying them as a night time option.

I always say it never hurts to try. That's the only way you'll ever know.

I would think it would be okay for a pretty young baby, but trying it out is the only way to know for sure. WHs are one of our regular nap time diapers, but I wouldn't trust them for 12+ hours.

ETA My girl is a very heavy wetter and we've had great luck with a Kawaii GNHW stuffed with one BG insert and two either hemp or bamboo inserts. We also use a stay-dry nighttime fitted made by Rainshine Designs.
