My 11 week, 11 lb baby boy is leaking through all our Bumgenius 4.0's and Freetimes, as well as Grovia AI2, at night. I thought they were repelling, though I've used only Rockin Green and haven't had them very long, so I tried stripping them, but they still leak. After reading online, I am beginning to think it is because he lies on his side to nurse at night. They always leak around the waist or legs. I don't think the diapers are truly repelling because the inserts are wet, and it isn't that I need to change more frequently because sometimes they leak right after putting them on him. I tried changing the rise to the next size up, to no avail.
It's going on two weeks now of having to completely change his clothes and bedding many times a night, and I am getting so frustrated!
I read that prefolds are the best for side sleepers, and I use them some during the day, and they have never leaked (though I haven't really put them to the test!). I like the ease of all-in-ones and pocket dipes for nighttime in-the-dark changes, but will use prefolds if I have to. However, I have to change them so often during the day compared to the bumgenius and grovia, and don't look forward to having to change every two hours at night! It seems like when I try adding more inserts or doubling up the prefold, there are gaps around the legs, and they are ridiculously bulky, to the point that his bottom is way up in the air. It can't be comfy!
So does anyone have any suggestions so I don't have leaks or have to change terribly often at night? Thanks in advance!
