Side Sleeper Soaking Through!

Somehow every time i find a nighttime solution, it only seems to hold for a couple weeks and then we spring another leak!!!! DS always sleeps on his right side (facing me for quick night-time snacks), and he now almost always leaks through his llamajama longies or stacinator on that side.

Is that anything crat-like that is bulked up on the sides for side sleepers???

Does anyone else have a good solution for this problem? I would really rather have him in wool, but if i keep waking up soaked, PUL may have to be our solution.

Thanks for your help!

Re: Side Sleeper Soaking Through!

I use mostly PUL pockets that I make myself and just stuff them full! Carmen sleeps the same way... co sleeping ready to chomp whenever she wants and sice it's MY bed i'm doing all I can to keep leaks at bay. If you want to stick with wool, try doublers. More stuffing to soak up the pee! I hope you can find a solution!

get some wool boosters- like a fleece liner but made out of old sweaters. Lanolize and lay them on that side in the area where he leaks

I never had leaks with my MotherEase Sandys. Great diapers.

My dd wears a Disana pull on wool cover or Aristocrat at night over her Little Beetle Hemp Original diaper. I add two hemp doublers at night. So far, no leaks. She lays on her side at night to nurse whenever the need arises too. Are your covers lanolized enough?

We use a wool cover that I don't know who made it (some help I am, lol) or else a pocket stuffed with one of leobaby's inserts and get no leaks and Kyla is a side sleeper also!

Like pp said, maybe lanolizing again? Or washing? I find when mine need a wash, they leak.

Good luck!

Re: Side Sleeper Soaking Through!

If I am using a fitted with wool cover. I actually lay one of his pocket inserts inside the fitted. Using a pocket with that same insert, I don't have to do anything. For my ds I like these inserts because they are wider at one end. So I can stuff that end up front for extra absorbancy. They are the cheapest ones, but to me they work better than all the others. I don't even use the ones that came with my pockets anymore.
