UGH!! I give up!!

I'm having such a time with my heavy wetters!! I can't seem to find a system that works without overbulking. I'm thinking of just quitting!! I have 2 in diapers and I'm having to change them (their clothes!!) each at least twice a day because they soak through their diapers. I love the fit of the Swaddle bees side snap and the BumGenius AIO and I've tried both microfiber and hemp inserts ith no luck. DS ends up wet right at the top of his diaper and dd just soaks right through. I really can't spend any more money trying to find something that works. Anyone else have this problem??

Re: UGH!! I give up!!

My boys went thru that stage, although they are still heavy wetters to this day...we finally came to the conclusion that bulky diapers was something we had to live with. Only just now have we been able to use more trim fitting dipes for the boys

Have you tried Berry Plush diapers? Those work well for heavy wetters from my experience.

I edited to add that I'm changing their clothes at least twice a day. I bet some of you thought I was only changing their diapers twice a day!!!

Re: UGH!! I give up!!

let me tell ya lol my dd did this with fuzzi bunz....every diaper change we had to change clothes. SUCKED BIG TIME.

My reccomendations from experience is VB aio's with sewn in soakers. These worked really well for my dd. They aren't super trim but worked pretty well.

Sorry mama

Re: UGH!! I give up!!

Here's what works for my heavy wetter DD:

VB AIOs with snap-in soakers - I add a JB under the soaker (these last about 1 and 1/2 hours, sometimes 2 hours)

fitted made by me with external knit, flannel or velour; hidden layer of BKT; inner layer of velour or BKT. I lay in a JB and then a soaker made from 2 layers BKT and 1 layer hemp fleece. These last anywhere from 1-3 hours.

Swaddlebee AIOs with a JB added (lasts about 2 hours)

Good Luck!!

Re: UGH!! I give up!!

I have the bamboo VBSN fitteds and they are AWESOME!!

OBB also has the bamboo doubler for front wetters (which my belly sleepin' girl is)

The bamboo is incredibly trim!! Also, I second the recommendation for the BPs. Either as an AI2 (which work really well for her) or as a cover over the fitteds.

Re: UGH!! I give up!!

Unfortunately I don't think there's much you can do to modify your current system other than to add a doubler to your AIO's. SB's are not good for geavy wetters. My dd wets through them super fast. BG AIO's are ok on her with a doubler. The best thing for you to do would be to sell your current stash and buy something that would work better. I think the Disposanots are a good combo of trimness and ability to stuff. You might also like GADS, similar to SB's, but still a little trim for a heavy wetter, IMO. We use a microfiber insert along with a hemp babies doubler. It works really well. She rarely wets through that combo.
