I am very new to cloth and am starting with pull-ups for my potty-training 2 1/2 yo. She keeps getting terroble rashes and whether it's do to disposibles or not (probably allergies or intolerences), once I tried the cloth, I haven't wanted to go back.<br><br>
My question is what do you do for the nighttime? She isn't using the potty regularly during the day yet (expect when naked, but that's why the pull-ups so that we can walk out the door). However, she mostly wakes up dry to almost dry so I thought I could use these for at night, but we have had accidents.<br><br>
I am trying to do my research and just read that you have to wash the pull-ups (I have Bummis) a few time before the absorbancy kicks in. I did not do that, which may explain the accidents we have had the past couple of days. Do I do doublers? I can only find those for babies. If you use cloth diapers, I would appreciate being pointed in the right direction to start that.<br><br>
Thanks so much!!

I use cloth training pants during the day at first, and after my DD stayed dry all night for 3 weeks I switched to using the trainers at night too. Until she did, I would snap a nighttime AIO and help her pull it on just she puts on her trainers. I called it a "nighttime trainer" and she never felt like she had to lie down for a change that way.<br><br>
I did find I had to wash them 4-5 times before they were good to use all night. Now if she has an accident overnight we don't have all wet sheets too, but I didn't find the Bummis had enough OOmph for overnight. They would if you could slip in any regular diaper doubler or maybe an infant prefold folded in thirds. My best trainers are Babykins from the BTL.com site, followed by Kooshies and fleece ones made by Angelluv (now Gatorbabies)-I got some secondhand and they work well and don't get as warm inside.<br><br>
Good luck!

Thanks so much for your information. It really helped.<br><br>
I couldn't find the BTL.com site. Could you post a link?<br><br>
And when you say AIO (that's All-In-One?) do you mean Babykins AIO trainer or regular AIO diapers?<br><br>
Thanks again for posting with so much great information!

Oops-I forget my shorthand is usually understood by just...me! Sorry!<br><br>
Here's a link to the training pants page at born to love:<br><a href="http://www.borntolove.com/bigkids.html" target="_blank">Training Pants</a><br><br>
By AIO, I mean any previous AIO you used for diapering that will hold up to nighttime needs, like we use Luke's Drawers Candy Wrappers and Goodnight Kisses for night, as well as Bizzy B Hive fleece and Sugar Peas wool covers with snap ins-anything you considered a good absorbant AIO.

My dd just this week decided she was ready for real undies. I have a bunch of Kushies waterproof trainers that hold a lot. As soon as her pull ups are used up at night I'll be using the Kushies. However for daytime I found that she treated them like diapers *because* they do hold so much, so the best thing for daytime for her was nothing at all for awhile.<br><br>

Thanks for clarifying for me, kasumi. I am a little slow on CD-ing, but getting up-to-speed. Hopefully, I'll have another baby soon and use this knowledge to the fullest! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
Darshani, thanks for your info. I saw the Kooshies website in my search and thought they looked good. Glad to know they are. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/oops.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="oops">T I remember you from the BBC AP board. I was bugabooster there. We have dd's the same age (mine 12/19/00). I also bumped into you on a TTC board and am thrilled to learn that you are pg!! Congratulations!! I am still trying, but hopefully this month is the month. It's great to see you hear and good luck with the rest of your pg!

Hi Keri~<br><br>
Mother of Eden makes a great night time pull-up called Overnight Undies. They are extremely absorbant. I haven't heard of anyone having leaks with them. For the day time their Trickle Free Trainers are really good.<br><br>
Oh and both have side snaps, so they are really easy to take off in case of an accidental poopy.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">
