Once we changed DD at 5 am when her sleeper was soaked, and it was a DISASTER. So, this morning (after a ROUGH night) DD was soaked again and I just left her asleep. She slept from 7:30-9:15 pretty much soaked. I put a wool pad on the big wet spot on the bed, wrapped a prefold around her bum (wet sleeper still on) and put a hand towel on her other side in case she rolled over.
So now I'm washing the sheets and mattress pad, because they, too, are soaked. I probably should've changed her to avoid such a wet bed, but I didn't want to wake her.
Do you wake your leaking baby?

If they were in just a diaper and was leaving a wet spot on the bed I would put something dry and absorbant under them and leave them till they woke up on their own.

My guy wakes at least twice in the night to feed still, and I have no problem changing him then and then feeding him and getting him back to sleep (most of the time). Only once have I had to wake him for leaking - I woke in the night to discover that he had somehow managed to work his diaper off... in the front only, and he was already laying in a puddle. I tossed a towel down under him, changed him to something that wouldn't come off, fed him and put him back to sleep.
