I EC ds in the day except when we are going out. I will admit to using disposable diapers at the moment as the diaper goes on at 7pm and ds doesn't really waken (only stirs) to feed until 7am. I use prefolds. My dd never wore a disposable and I hate them, we used terries with her and they were fine. With ds, the wee is all on the front of the nappy and the prefolds just won't hold that much wee unless I pad it out but then it becomes too bulky, which he screams at and hates. So what can i do for night times? Any ideas?

Change in the middle of the night


My dd has always had nights where she sleeps through the night (off and on) and we always change her if we find that she's wet. She usually sleeps through the changes. We use HH with 3 joey bunz.

What is a HH? (I am from the UK)

I have considered changing him in the night but he screams and wriggles in the day, I can only think he would be far worse in the night and then would takes ages to feed him back to sleep, or I am worried he will feel wide awake and be up for hours then. I might try it though one night and see what happens. I hate the fact his nappy (oops I mean diaper) is on so long. He doesn't tend to wee till midnight, then his nappy gets wetter in the early hours.

Sorry! HH= Happy Heiny - a pocket diaper. My dd HATES diaper changes too most of the time (you'd think I was attacking with hot pokers) but most of the time at night she doesn't even wake up. Since she sleeps next to me if I wake up or stir I just check and if it's wet, we change.

good luck!

What size prefold are you using? What kind of cover?

I would suggest premium indian pfs and aristrocrat wool covers.....they never leak!

Another vote for a midnight change.

We use an all-hemp Muttaqin with an extra doubler (home-made) or two in it, then a wool soaker.

What are "terries" ?

I am just using a regular prefold with Cotton Bottoms wrap (like Bummis Super Whisper) I don't pad it out with anything, I do a boy fold to put more thickness in the front. Terries are terry towelling square nappies that you fold to whatever shape you want and clip with a snappi/nappi nippa. I might do a bit more research on wool wraps too.
