We've used disposables at night for quite a while... It was always just easier for us (read: DH). But I just always found DH reaching for them during the day too, no matter how hard I tried, so I thought, HEY let's make the switch and just do cloth full time. It's not like we don't have the CDs to do it. I let the 'sposies run out and didn't buy more. It keeps DH from using them during the day.
The problem I'm running in to is that DS gets diaper rashes when we CD at night, and this time has been no different. He usually doesn't pee until right before he wakes up in the morning (I know this from the 'sposie use, when he would still be dry at 6AM). He pees, wakes up almost immediately (the boy does NOT sleep through being wet), and then I try to change him pretty promptly. So it's not an issue of "sitting in it." If he does pee at night, again, he wakes up and won't go back to sleep, so he gets changed pretty darn quickly so that we can ALL go back to sleep.
We used our Bum Geniuses as the exclusive night diaper for the first week (easier for DH, who does most of the nighttime parenting now), when the rash began, but I thought maybe they were just too hot. So then this last week I've been trying our prefolds, but that doesn't seem to be helping either.
I really don't think it's a detergent issue, as I rinse the holy heck out of my diapers (three rinses in a top loader). I'd try just the prefold with no cover, but I don't quite trust him that much yet. It's not a yeast rash, but I tried stripping all the diapers anyway... It really isn't in our budget right now to go and get new wool covers. But I'm wondering if that's the only way to have success with it?
I love not having any 'sposies in the house. But I'm beginning to feel bad for DS, and I'm wondering if 1 or 2 'sposies each night might just be how it has to go?
