Let me start off by stating that Mo-Mo is by no means a heavy wetter. So I have used a couple different diapers for overnight use. None of them leaked but one had the foulest ammonia smell the next morning. My eyes burned. This was a used diaper that I had washed when it arrived, but I took everything I had gotten used and washed it again. On hot, 5 times, with bleach in the first load. I’m still waiting to use that diaper again. I am confident my washes did their job, but I don’t think my eyeballs have gotten past it yet.
So I used a Sunbaby with two inserts the first night (one MF and one bamboo) and it was fine. There might have been a little wicking onto her PJs but I’m not sure, I was sleepy and she rolled over on me…meh. So I tried the Kawaii next. This was the stinkfest. No leaks, but nose death imminent.
What to try next? Well I have a bunch of fitteds, Mo-Mo wore one of her LFPs yesterday. It’s still not at its max absorbency as I had to change it after the first pee. And I knew her other LFP wouldn’t be suitable for overnight use yet, either. It has only been washed once. Do I try Sunbaby with my charcoal bamboo inserts? My Kawaii Heavy Duty?
So I put the Pink Kawaii Heavy duty on with a charcoal bamboo insert and a bamboo double. Way too big. She had such huge leg gaps I KNOW the pee would have gushed right out. I might even have to wait to use this diaper until she is a bit bigger. Scratch.
What about my new Medium Fuzzibunz pocket? I kept the MF insert it has and threw in a bamboo doubler. LEG GAP! I could have snapped the leg snaps one more in but I don’t think it would have made a difference. Scratch.
So I lay eyes upon my Thirsties Fab Fitted green diaper with aplix…and the heavens shine down. I threw a bamboo insert or doubler, whatever, in the open space between the diapers sewn in insert and the back and wrap her in a Ribbit Flip cover. Not too bulky, not too tight, NO LEG GAP! She is secure. So she gets her PJs on, no issues there, have a little nurse session and she is out.
Fast forward to this morning…her bum is bone dry, the bamboo insert is wet and the back on the fitted is barely damp! No leaks, no wicking, no soggy bottom! I am so happy! Not to mention I have three other Fab Fitteds in orange, blue, and purple! So my night time diaper has been chosen!
What night time diaper works for you? Is your wee one a heavy wetter or no?
