Getting Brave with Using Cloth Diapers – An Overnight Sensation

I’ve finally done it.  I’ve taken a bold new step in using cloth diapers with Eudora.  When I’d attempted this method of using cloth diapers with Norton, it was, more often than not, a failure.  With Eudora, I’ve had much more success.

I’m using cloth diapers overnight.

I’m finding that it’s much more successful with Eudora.  You see, I very seldom had a wet bed with her in her disposable diapers, and that’s with her sleeping nine to thirteen hours at a stretch.  The rare occasions that I did find a wet bed in the morning was because she’s just so darned skinny and has such a high rise.  She sort of manages to wiggle out of the disposable.  I find my precious baby girl sporting a plumber’s crack under her sleeper.

Since disposables don’t seem to fit my skinny girl all that well, and she’s not the heavy wetter that her big brother is, I gave my BumGenius Freetime a shot.  When I got her up in the morning, the diaper was saturated… but the bed was not.  Nor were her pajamas or swaddle.  I’d had some overnight cloth diapering success.

I only have two BumGenius Freetime diapers in my stash, so I decided to give a chance to the other diaper that I thought might manage.  After all, this combination had an occasional success with Norton, and that kid pees like a faucet… especially at night.  I used a Tots Bots Easy Fit diaper with an added bamboo insert.  It also worked.

So, now I have three overnight cloth diapering solutions with Eudora.  I’m thrilled.  This is something that I’d been terrified of trying due to the repeated failures that I’ve had with my boy.  At this rate, I may be able to limit the use of any and all disposable diapers to when Grandma Kitty and Grumpy Red are baby-sitting.  That would be completely and totally awesome.  It’s my fervent hope that Eudora outgrows the massive box of size two Huggies diapers we bought from Costco long before we run out.

Are you using cloth diapers overnight?  What’s your magic solution?

  1. Lol I sometimes find my daughter with a plumber’s crack too. Baby bum crack!

  2. We use fitted diapers at night with a Flip cover overnight. We use Kiwi Pie, Bamboozle, or Blueberry fitteds. I add a microfiber insert topped with fleece as a doubler, and we’ve never had a leak.

    Interesting! When I cloth diaper my son at night, he must wear a diaper cover. So far, I have only tried tried Rearz and bummis prefolds. I used the rearz and cover at night and it was pretty successful at staying dry and not wetting the bed as long as i changed it in good time.
