"soaker" questions

So I assume the purpose of a soaker is to be worn over fitteds, right? Is there any reason I can't put it over a pocket for nighttime? I have in the past put a thirsties cover over a pocket because DS will sometime leak out the sides (he's a side sleeper) but I hate having the extra elastic around his legs and all. Would a soaker be better? Will it "wick" (not sure if that's the right term) if he's laying on his side?

Also, anywhere you can recommend for cheap but well-made soakers?

I don't see why you wouldn't be able to do that. If you are worried with the elastic around his legs why not try wool of fleece soakers without the elastic?

Yes! You can definitely put a soaker over a pocket for extra protection. Or better yet - use fleece pants. The one's from Old Navy work great - as do many others. But if you really want a soaker and not pants, I would recommend checking out the WAHM wares section. You can find really good deals there.

Thanks. I was thinking a soaker so that way we can use our current PJs which are footed. The child always has freezing feet!

Sorry if this is considered threadjacking but I thought I would post my soaker questions here as well.
If you put your child in a soker for night, what do they wear for PJs?
Where do you get baby Tshirts that don't ride up? Since you can't really do a onsie with soakers. Can you convert a onsie to a Tshirt?

Re: "soaker" questions

If you have 100% polyester fleece footed PJs (I use Carter's) they sort of double as a soaker. I use them for DD. She wears pockets diapers for bedtime but the fleece is an extra barrier against leakage. They aren't waterproof but does help. Otherwise, I would just use a fleece soaker or a wool soaker and still put the pjs over top. The carter's pjs are usually really roomy, at least they are for us.

I've even put them over sposies in a pinch for night time use. I usually only keep generic sposies on hand and occasionally use them for overnight if ds has a rash and I'll put a soaker on over the cheap-o sposie so it doesn't leak.

I use wool longies at night on top of her pockets. I just like how soft and warm they are. We just use l/s AA shirts with them.
