After four months of trying all different types of diapers on my now 16lb, 4 month old son (yes, he is a chunk-a-munk!), I feel like I have finally figured out the ultimate night time cloth diapering system.
Take our nighttime routine, for example. I put my son down around 7:15 pm at night. He sleeps until 7 or 8 the next morning without a leak, no wicking, and no “sweating” of the diaper.
We use one Bumgenius one size micro terry insert and one Super Do Hemp Terry Insert inside the pocket part of the diaper. The diaper is a bit bulky but a baby can go 12 hours without a diaper change – so the bulk it no trouble and baby is sleeping anyway!
For a newborn baby who is still having bowel movements a night, this system isn’t necessary as you obviously need to change more frequently when they are first born.
I would love to hear your comments about what you use a night for your baby! Let me know.
