My little one is a heavy wetter at night, so finding a perfect night-time diaper solution was bit of trial and error until we could find a solution that would work and be leak-free. Initially I started using our pocket diapers with the inserts the diapers come with. Unfortunately we problems with the diaper wicking and leaking in the middle of the night, so the hunt was on to find the perfect option for us! I tried doubling up the microfiber inserts, however, it just made the diaper so bulky and we still had some wicking issues. After researching insert options I decided to try some hemp inserts inside of our bumGenius pocket diapers. I used the one size microfiber insert the bumGenius diaper comes with and a large hemp insert. Thankfully the diaper wasn’t too bulky; but I had serious doubts if the diaper would hold up all night! Anxiously waiting to see if I’d find a damp baby, I was pleasantly surprised to find no leaks! The hemp and microterry fiber insert combination held everything for the full 12 hours he slept! I was thrilled, and went right to the computer to order a few more inserts. I also wondered if I could add a hemp insert into a fitted diaper and see if it would hold up all night. I debated with myself whether to try it, afterall, did I want to mess with the routine that was working so great for us. Ultimately I gave it a shot and put him in a Bagshot Row Bamboo fitted diaper with a hemp insert stuffed in between. For a little extra protection I used a fleece cover and put my little one to bed. This time I was hopeful it would work and was happy to find a dry baby! I now have 2 successful night-time solutions for my heavy wetter. I don’t think I will try anything else for a while unless I start to have issues down the road. — by Kristle S.
