If you go diaper free at night

What does your baby sleep on? I haven't done EC at night until now but I really want to start, I'm just trying to figure out how. I don't want to be up all night paranoid that hell pee and I definitely don't want to be washing sheets more than I have to. So if you do it, tell me how it works out for you PLEASE!

Re: If you go diaper free at night

When I start with Garrett I think I'm gonna put him in a fitted diaper and put him a on waterproof pad...probably something like this That way I can tell right away if he's dry or not and if he already went, it's not a big mess to clean up. Hope that helps

Re: If you go diaper free at night

I think that one is covered in fleece so they wont feel wet. I started today at naptime, and used a hospital pad, Im still searching for a felted wool blanket, and he peed but I was in such a deep sleep so I didn't hear him wake otherwise I probably couldve caught it. Well I hope it works out for tonight, wish me luck!

Re: If you go diaper free at night

It has been two nights so far and no peeing! Just this morning I was out of the room and he didn't get to the potty fast enough. Its not too stressful though! So I put an iso for a felted wool blanket and I just want to make sure that will work well. Anybody???

Re: If you go diaper free at night

With my dd we could let her sleep naked on top of a prefold on a waterproof crib pad. Did that make sense? because if she did pee it would go straight down. With my ds we obviously couldn't do that because his penis was like a little hose and would spray everywhere! So I think he always slept in a diaper (no cover). I would have the little potty on the floor next to the bed and sometime during the night before or after nursing I can't remember. I would put the potty on the bed, take off his diaper, sit him on the potty and he would pee, put the potty back on the floor, then nurse or go back to sleep. Usually, putting his diaper back on. He rarely, rarely peed in the diaper. But like you, I didn't want to have to wash the sheets so he wore the diaper in case.

I can't remember what age, but as time went on, he would start out the night in a diaper without a cover. And if he peed during the night, then I would just leave him without a diaper for the remainder of the night.

HTH

Re: If you go diaper free at night

Even though DD's pee goes straight down when she's lying on the bed, DH is worried about the top sheets getting wet if she pees when naked or even just wearing a diaper without a cover.

Do you put any other layers in-between DC and the top sheets?

Do you do anything differently if your baby is a side sleeper?
