Could my 8 month old DS add more factors to making it impossible for his diapers not to leak by morning? Oh yes, he also flops around a lot! I've read fitteds & wool, sounds great but A. They're both pretty pricey so I'm scared to just pick a brand randomly, anyone have a favorite? And B. what about the wetness against his skin all night? He gets red if I don't change him every 1-2 hours during the day (prefolds in gdiaper shells). I read about fleece liners? Could that wick moisture & make the diaper leak?
Thank you!!

I had a very similar situation with both my ds. I found covers that had the double gusset like rumparooz were helpful. Also hemp doublers, they are incredible absorbent and very trim. I would often cover that up with wool. I found this kind to be the best: http://www.greenmountaindiapers.com/kissas-wool.html
Not this brand per say but any wool cover that had this style leg and waist were good for side/wiggly sleepers. I did use a fleece or microfiber thin liner to keep things drier against baby skin and really load up on barrier cream at last diaper change before putting them down. I eventually switched to flush able liners ( I like grovia) to wick moisture at night and to make poo disposal easy during the day.
I hope this helps mama
good luck and dry nights smile.gif

We were in the same situation and fitteds and wool worked well for us!

I use sustainable babyish fitteds with Disana wool covers. Every now and then we have a leak from her laying on her side but it is the best combo I have found. The fitted diaper comes with two hemp pads and I put another one on top of that which is a stay-dry liner. :-)

Wool looks expensive, but you only need a couple as you jet alternate, and they rarely need washing. I actually like 3, so when I do wash or re-lanolise, I still can have 2 alternating. Also for daytime use, you can use longs, shorties or skirts INSTEAD of other clots, so there's a saving there as well

I've used Motherease brand Sandy's Diapers (made for heavy wetters) http://www.mother-ease.com/SandysDiapers.asp with their airflow covers at night with two babes (both all night nursers, wigglers and very heavy wetters) and never a leak, truly. I also use a barrier cream before bed and despite very sensitive skin rarely have an issue. Also, I only need a few diapers and maybe 2 covers to rotate through. The diapers absorb a ton (the site says 16 oz without the doubler!). so they do take a long time to dry. I am pretty sensitive to wool and have never tried it on a baby, though I hear great things. Good luck!!

What barrier creams are you using? I'm still searching for the perfect night combo too.

We use Triple Paste and a generic brand zinc oxide cream ( it is 40% zinc oxide). I like both. Both creams provide a barrier as well as treat/soothe any irritation. I really liked the Mustela barrier cream (smells amazing!) but my DS was allergic Good luck!!
