My 15 month old is starting to soak through his diapers most nights. (through the top, wakes up with a wet tummy) I use 7th generation diapers.  We tried huggies overnights and those were a joke.  A friend said I should try a pull-up style diaper.  I was thinking of using getting some cloth kawaii bamboo diapers just to use for overnight, hoping that 2 liners would do the trick.  (and then maybe we'd switch to cloth if we like them)  I still want a good overnight disposable for travel.  


Can I have your recommendations for cloth and disposable overnight diapers?

Don't know if this'd help, but I saw that nobody else had written back, so I thought I'd at least chime in.  We use plain ol' Target diapers for our 14 m.o.  Most nights, they do the trick.  I read somewhere that  if you are having a lot of wet mornings to use the next size up diaper so that there is more area for them to wet.  We all sleep together, and washing sheets for a king-sized bed is a hassle...we use a mattress cover under the sheets and sometimes I don't bother to wash the sheets...just kind of scrub at them.  Not a perfect solution, but sometimes "easier" is better than other options.  Good luck!

We used huggies overnights. If they are leaking, try going up a size. That's good advice for any diaper that leaks really ;)

we use pampers baby dry / 12 hour and don't have issues.


one thing that works for me, but may sound silly, is make sure his penis is pointed downward when you fasten his diaper.
