Hi Everyone. We use 7th Gen disposables : which we are happy with during the day, but lately DS seems to be waking up wet through his pj's a few days a week. Anyone have a great solution for this? I know the mainstream dipe companies make "overnight" diapers but I am reluctant to use the bleached ones...Maybe there's a solution from the world of CD-ing?
Thanks!

My son is a heavy wetter at night and the only thing i have found to work is a fuzzi bunz with a microterry insert and a hemparoo insert. it seems to be absorbant enough for him but the diaper is really heavy by morning. You can also use the dipes you are using and put some wool or fleece longies on him. It will wick away the moisture and he won't feel wet nd your bed won't get wet. Good luck

That's what I was going to suggest- a soaker over the diaper. You might be able to find something fairly cheap on the TP. GL!

I always put dd in fleece jammies or pants or wool longies and a shirt. Sometimes if I know she's been sucking down the fluids I will diaper her as usual but with a wool soaker and then fleece jammies on top. I HATE getting up int he middle of the night to change my clothing and hers and the sheets. UGH!

Yeah, I've been putting him in the fleece pj's, which keeps him relatively dry, but am thinking ahead to summer when he'll probably be in just a onesie! He was wet again this morning--I just figure, I'd hate feeling wet when I woke up--even though he doesn't seem to notice!
