DD has lately become a very heavy wetter. She has also recently outgrown many of her diapers, so it is time to "build" some new ones. Any design tips or fabric suggestions? I tend to not be into stuffing diapers, so I would prefer not to do pockets.

Often, when she wakes up from a nap or a night's sleep, she overwhelms her already wet diaper. I watched her pee through her night-time wool cover this morning (she was standing) She also left a nice big wet spot on our couch this afternoon when she awoke from her nap (wearing a PUL cover). I think that she needs a little more absorbancy with her daytime diapers. We definitely need to make some changes.

Thanks!

I use hemp to make dipes for my heavy wetter. Also I use a wool liner in the diaper. I took some leftover felted wool flannel and cut it into a soaker shape and put it between the snap in soaker and the body of the diaper. It seems to help the diaper actully absorb more when DS does a super potty, like right when he wakes up. Then he doesn't just pees right through it, the wool slows down the stream, if you kwim? If you do internal soakers, you could put it between the cover and then diaper too. HTH, I will add more if I think of anything!

Thanks. I don't mind doing lay in/snap in/sewed in soakers. I just don't really want to go fishing in the diaper to pull out a pocket soaker. :LOL
