So Cailan has started screaming if I change his diaper during the night. I think it's because he's sort of sleeping through the night... he still eats 2 or 3 times a night but he doesn't really wake up for it, if you know what I mean. If I change his diaper he wakes all the way up and lets us know he's not happy about it!

So, should I just skip the night-time changes? He never poops at night, just pees. We use fuzzi bunz at night, and the fleece wicks pretty well, but the insert is SOOO wet and stinky if we don't change it. And I just feel bad leaving him in the same diaper for 9 hours. But I feel pretty bad when he's screaming at 2 am.

What are you all doing?

Definitely don't change any dipes at night unless they are poopy. Add an extra doubler if you need too. Sleep!

Id agree! Never wake a sleeping babe and never night change unless they are poopy. Add 2 inserts if needed.

I haven't changed Samara's diaper at night since she was about 2 days old. She's stopped pooping at night since then, so no need to.

We put one cpf and one insert into the Fuzzi Bunz for nightime diapers. It seems to be enough for dd.

nope i don't change her at night. one prefold, one insert and some type of cream on her bum to keep the moisture off her skin. it's generally soaked in the morning, but she sleeps right through it.

Courtney and Cree, baby made 3, added one more then there were 4, sakes alive, then we had 5, another in the mix now we have 6!
