My 33-mos old toddler has been out of diapers since 22 mos (we were part-time ECers) and pull-ups since 24 - within a few weeks we gave up on night diapers too. I was night-nursing then and used to potty her when she woke up to nurse at night, but when she night-weaned a couple of months later, she started being irregular about staying dry at night. I tried putting her CDs back on, but they felt so bulky and like such a reversal since it had been 4-5 mos post-diapers by then. A friend gave us a disposable pull-up during an unplanned sleepover, which got us into using disposables...I started buying biodegradables (Naty) but am not feeling great about not using cloth, esp since 4/5 nights the pull-up is dry (and you can't reuse the Natys as much as mainstreams, the filling gets really bunched and moved around). I got a couple medium Blueberry pull-ups for night use (we'd used smalls in transitioning but she'd just outgrown them) but after a few cycles of suddenly peeing every night, I was finding myself with no clean pull-ups and not enough dirty ones to warrant a whole wash. I could get a bigger stash, but I am reluctant to drop the money at this point since we don't use them during the day, and we were starting to get odour issues when the Blueberries sat around for 4-5 days before washing. (BBs seemed good for stopping the sheets from getting wet, but still making her say when she woke up "I peed in my pull-up" which she never notices with disposables).
Any ideas on more low-key night options? I am toying with just doing nothing, washing the sheets if there is a miss, and hoping that the increased awareness will prompt her to pee right before sleep (I often offer a potty but she doesn't always produce since she pees pre-bath) or maybe increase her openness to trying to potty herself at night (resistant so far). But if her bladder is not ready for consistently holding it then I don't want to push it, and she mostly sleeps through the night which I'd like to encourage. Have others been in this situation and what have you done? I have visions of laying out a bunch of old prefolds and her rolling off them or kicking them around in her sleep. Has anyone used Brolly Sheets for this? heard about them a while ago but not about their performance.
