I love pockets, but we are having a lot of leaks at the leg. DD2 pees fast and strong

This is us, exactly (except the 2 in diapers bit because she is pled)! The jealous toddler, pockets that leak at the leg, always having to tend to the toddler when changing the diaper, etc. I'm not really burned out on CDs but I do want something better for nights. He doesn't poop as much as dd did (we cd'd her from birth), so I am already not changing diapers at night, but I don't want him sitting that long with wet right up next to his skin. I may try wool. Do any of you use hemp prefolds? I have some but they are so rough. I was wondering if they are more absorbent than cotton????
I do wish there was a better nighttime system. We were both drenched this morning in the pocket I tried last night.
As for the toddler and potty learning. Dd has been using the potty since 16 months, but sometimes I think it would be easier, when Waylon is almost asleep at the breast and Haylee yells, "Potty", for her to still be in diapers.
I know in my heart that's not true, but sheesh, it seems like she only has to use the potty when I am nursing and he's almost asleep. And what do you tell the toddler who has to potty? "You have to wait until I can put the baby down?" Nope, you get up, hope you can keep him on the boob, somehow one-handed get the tiny toddler up on the potty. Now that I am writing this, I'm thinking--duh, solution to that would be a little potty for the living room that she can use without my help. I may just have to do that!
As for changing toddler poops--yeah, nasty. I don't know how mama's do it. We were really really fortunate because our little high needs baby made one thing easy for us...she hated being wet or poopy and that made for an easy potty learning experience. It took a week.
As for EC'ing...
to you mamas! We did it a little once dd got older, which I think contributed to her being easy to plearn, but right now? Yeah right
. You mamas rock!
