- Your child is awake and screaming because their pajamas (and their sheets) are soaked.
- Your child is sleeping just fine, maybe wakes up to eat, and you find them soaked. They are ready to fall back into dream land (if they haven’t already), but unfortunately you have to strip them naked and change everything, awakening their senses and causing you to lose precious sleep.
Don’t let your piles of laundry and lack of sleep get the best of you! There are wonderful cloth diaper solutions out there. It’s just a matter of trial and error and finding what works best for your little one.
hemp doubler with a regular pocket diaper. This would never work for my son, but many parents don’t have problems using microfiber at night.
Personally, I have a lot of success with a Flip organic insert paired with a Hemp Babies doubler in a Flip cover. This combo gets my heavy wetter through as much as 14 hours of sleep with no leaks!
I’ve also found two cotton flat diapers can be super absorbent! I pad fold one and use the happy anteater fold on the other. I love this nighttime solution because it’s very inexpensive!
Fitted diapers are another great solution! They are incredibly absorbent. Just make sure you put a cover around it! Many moms swear by Sustainablebabyish fitteds for nights.
Instead of a regular PUL cover, try wool which is breathable and great to use both in summer or winter.
Pajamas can make a difference too! When trying a new solution, put fleece pajamas on your baby. The fleece helps wick away the moisture. Even if your child leaks, as long as you get to it soon enough, hopefully the sheets will stay dry!
