Most absorbent for nighttime?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi! I'm looking for the most absorbent cloth diaper for nighttime diapering. Something that can hopefully hold 2-3 pees and still keep my boy rather dry until we get to change him in the morning. Thoughts? Thanks!

I love my Blueberry diapers for night time, they hold a lot of pee. I don't change diapers at night with these. And even after holding all that pee, my DD does a big old poop first thing in the morning too and no leaks, ever.

I'm thinking of ordering a couple of Blueberries. Do you use extra inserts at night or is the one Blueberry insert sufficient?

I just use the one that comes with it. It is like a really long insert with snaps 1/3 of it is microfiber and the other 2/3 is cotton. You fold it in 1/3's and snap it together depending on which snap setting you are using (there are 3). Works great!

i would say a pocket diaper with either a hemp or a bamboo inserts with a microfiber insert on top. the hemp or bamboo holds the most liqued, but the microfiber has the quick absorbing power so the second the pee hits the diaper its absorbs. if that doesnt work, you can add a second hemp/bamboo as they are generally thin and so absorbant.

Cricketts fitteds under a fleece or wool soaker. My kids are both really heavy wetters, and it's the only thing we've found that keeps them dry--we use a hemp doubler with the one that comes with it, too. I personally think fitteds are the way to go for a really heavy wetter.

I can't use a pocket for overnight... right now we are using two premium prefolds (one trifolded inside the other) and an Aristocrats wool cover. (tried a pocket a few nights ago and woke up wet....)

Happy Hempy (with fleece inner), stuffed with a prefold and a hemp doubler, wool cover. I love my babyology soaker for night time.

I am thinking of ordering some hemp inserts for night time because of leaking issues, so thanks for explaining this. But I was wondering, which insert (hemp or mf) should be closest to baby? Right now I stuff the inserts into a BG OS because that's what I have. Also, any brand of hemp better than others? Thought these ?s might also help the OP. TIA

We use Bamboozles with a fleece topped doubler. In the cooler weather I also use a wool cover.

Drybees Fleece Pockets are excellent for night time. The fleece allows evaperation. I suggest stuffing them with superdos or a mix of hemp and micro inserts/doublers.

hemp! for heavy wetters

This is what I have used every night on my dd for the last year. A hemp flat diaper with a hemp diaper liner inside....all of this under an Aristocrats wool cover. We have not had a leak once. She sleeps 12 hours straight through.

I couldn't be happier with this setup! I just wish I would have known about this with my first 3 kids.

This except we do the Hemp Stuffin and a microfiber doubler inside the Happy Hempy and use either an Aristocrat soaker or Babyology longies. DS can go 12 hours in this and stays nice and dry!
