Overnight Cloth Diaper Options

Everyone has different preferences for overnight cloth diaper options.  There are a variety of factors to take into consideration: how heavy of a wetter one is dealing with, what’s user friendly, what’s available (a lot of us prefer to buy local in my community), and what’s cost effective.  Some popular overnight cloth diaper options were rejected in my house because my husband either couldn’t figure it out or just didn’t like them for whatever reason.

Recently, I asked my local cloth diaper community what they chose for their overnight cloth diaper options.  Some of them were awesome enough to share pictures.

    I can’t believe 12 hours in a option! Amazing!

  2. Lisa Johnston says:

    Awesome. We also like Antzy Pants for overnight. 🙂

  3. Victoria H says:

    These sound amazing. I am thinking of making the switch to cloth diapers.

  4. Brynn Arego says:

    Love them! We are making the switch to cloth diapers with my youngest 🙂 I’m very excited!

  5. I use a Flip cover with a Best Bottom Stay Dry insert, a Best Bottom overnight insert, and a FuzziBunz minky insert.

  6. We usually do a sibish fitted witha fleece liner and an upcycled wool cover for maximum breath ability and rash prevention, but I have done a BG 4.0 with a microfiber insert wrapped in a hemp babies little weeds that’s lasted 13 hours!

  7. We love our sbish snapless fitteds with a Woollybottoms wool soaker. When you find the right combo, gotta stick with it – no matter what! 😉

  8. Laura P says:

    Thanks! I’m expecting and was worried about overnight… but good to know other moms use bumGenius (with extra inserts) and it works for them! I already have a few bumGenius, so it’s good I don’t have to buy a whole new set of diapers for nighttime!

    • It all depends on how heavily your child wets. 🙂 Norton would look at that diaper and laugh at its puny absorbency… but others would do fine.

  9. Wow. Really seems like pockets work well for people, and that does make sense! I’m bookmarking this post and a couple others of yours on the same topic for when I get to that point. My baby is due in October and I’m guessing for awhile I won’t really have the full “overnight” experience! Seems like this, along with many other parenting choices, will be trial and error!

    Great ideas. Pockets with two inserts worked okay for me at first but now we have to use either a fitted or a prefold with some other heavy duty (preferably trim) insert like a Ragababe insert or other natural fibers or he wakes up damp.

  11. Rachel A. says:

    Right now we use kawaii pocket with their micro and a hemp insert. Works for us and our 6 month old. Will probably need something different when he gets older, so thanks for the options!!

  12. I’ve heard of a lot of people having success with the BG 4.0s and adding hemp inserts. And also using a good fitted like sbish and a wool cover.

    Hi! Our almost 8 month old daughter can still get through the night with a Diaper Junction AIO with a Thirsties hemp insert. I’m looking into these other suggestions, too. I’m surprised the BG 4.0 with microfiber/hemp works!!
