HELP! DS soaking through everything!

For some reason, all of a sudden DS is soaking through every kind of diaper I put on him at night. I have tried every kind we have for him, FBs, Bumkins, Kushies (which used to be out night-time diaper w/extra microfiber towel stuffed in the flap), bumgenious. Then I tried using a FB stuffed w/CB insert and 3 extra microfiber towels folded in thirds (9 extra layers of microfiber) and he still woke up soaking wet! I even tried huggies overnight disposies and it exploded!!! I have no clue as to what the next step is. Now I am setting my alarm and waking both of us up to do a diaper change @ 1 am. But I cannot continue this. Ladies, I need your help. What else should I try? TIA!

I would try a super thick fitted or a couple of premium prefolds with a dancing bears fleece cover for nighttime.

Re: HELP! DS soaking through everything!

yikes!

VBSN bionic version comes to mind

http://www.olivebranchbaby.com/

but it looks like she is on vacation from diaper making for a little while.

We personally use a FB stuffed with two joey bunz and a MOE (MOE on top) and it's trim enough that I could add more like three joey bunz with a MOE on top.

Good luck!

Re: HELP! DS soaking through everything!

Sounds like you need hemp with a microfiber topper. I would also suggest a VBSN. You might be able to get one from Hillbilly Bunny...

OR if you can find one, a PW hemp. DS does great in his and he pees all night long!!!

Bottom line, I would get some hemp if you don't have any. It's such a great absorber. I second the Joeybunz...super trim so you can use a few of them together and your kiddo will still be comfy.

Green Mountian diapers has a night time insert and you can get the Joey bunz hemp inserts they are really trim and super absorbent. Joeybunz hemp inserts with microfiber insert or towels might be thirsty enough.

The only thing I've found that works for us is a microfiber towel with a hemp insert. Definately try some hemp

I 2nd the dancing bears fleece soakers! They are great

DD went through a super soaker stage too. She was SO bad that after trying every diaper under the sun I switched to sposies, Huggies Supreme Overnight with a wool or fleece cover.

We did that for a few months and now she can where cloth again just fine overnight. Don't know why? She still only drinks a tiny bit of milk before bed, maybe her bladder control is better now?

We do a heiny hugger and doubler with a BSWW or my homemade hemp/flannel with a wallypop fleece cover

Re: HELP! DS soaking through everything!

Little Ms night time diaper, I swear by these my 14month old was soaking through everything and Karis (littlemstore.com) night diapers are GREAT. They are in AIO, but the liner is snap in, so they dry faster, and its tri folded I have one and can take a pic if you want to see it.

kari is also a great wahm
