Damp sheets, wet clothes, soaked diaper….what is the deal here folks? Is there a cloth diaper that can make it through the night without needing to be changed? There are solutions to the nighttime cloth diaper issues you may be experiencing. First thing to remember though is that not all babies pee the same amount or with the same frequency. This varies from baby to baby and changes with age. Second thing to remember is that in my opinion it doesn’t have a whole lot to do with the pocket diaper or cover you’re using, but more to do with what you’re stuffing in it. If a diaper with two inserts needs changing every 2-3 hours during the day then there’s a 100% chance it’s going to need to be changed the same amount during the night. Experiment with these three combinations and see if you can’t get a whole night’s sleep without having to wake up and change the babies soaked diaper. My TOP Pick #1 Kissaluvs Super Soaker Doublers. Photos can NOT do these doublers justice. They are thick, absorbent and will get the job done. Use one … Continue reading
