ds2 has never been the best sleeper, but then several days ago he had a diaper rash so dh asked me to put him in disposables at night until the rash cleared up. Since we already have sposies for church nursery, I agreed. All of a sudden, ds slept 10-11 hours straight, for 3 nights in a row! I figured it was because we changed his nap schedule and some other things. Well, last night I put him back in cloth, and he woke up crying several times. At 2:30 am I went into his room and the pee smell was so strong, and he was standing in the crib very upset. I changed his diaper- it was completely soaked. I'm now thinking he just doesn't like feeling wet at night. I have been using fleece liners but that doesn't make a difference. We normally use a prefold or prefitted with doubler and fleece liner, covered with a Lana soaker. We tried pockets at night but he leaked.<br><br>
Anyway, I'm not necessarily looking for advice on a nighttime diaper because I can't really afford to try out a bunch of stuff right now. I was just wondering if there's other cloth diaper users out there who have had to settle for using sposies at night! I'm pregnant again so I really need my sleep! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

DS wears a disposable at night. in cloth he wakes almost every 2 hours but in a dispo he sleeps the whole night. sleep is too important so we are fine with that.

My ds1 also sleeps better in a disposable. Like you, I figured it out when I pregnant lol! It's only one a day so I have no guilt about it (except dh tends to use them during day <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: ).

I read your post the other day and said, what the heck, let me try. So I got a sposie from a friend and HE SLEPT THROUGH!! He is 15 mos and has sttn maybe 5 times since birth....I really didnt think a FB with one CB and one micro towel would be uncomfortable. Well I am going to do it again tonite and if he sttn then we will be there with you--cloth by day, sposies by night. I love CDing but I love my sleep more.

I have never used sposies on DS.....but lately DS has been sleeping better in a Swaddlbees aplix diaper at night.<br><br>
I know you didn't want to try a bunch of stuff out...but these diapers ROCK. They're so trim but work so well!<br><br>

This is what I ended up having to do too. My toddler's CDs from night were soooo toxic in the morning, I could never figure out how to get them clean enough (have a FL and soft water too, it sucks). Both of my boys use a sposie at night, and sleep pretty decently. Plus, it seemed like no matter how thick of a CD we used, he'd always leak through it. We still use CDs during the daytime though.

Mine slept better at night as well...until I got a shempsert from onlyboys....now they sleep just as well in a fb stuffed with that. I agree, sleep is my highest priority some days!

My son is the same way. He just started sleeping through the night (11months) and then all of a sudden he was waking up very very early in the morning but still tired. We would change him and he would go right back to sleep. Started putting him in a disposable for night and he has slept 11-12 hours ever since.<br><br>

I use disposables at night, on both of my daughters.<br>
Last night I used a FB on my oldest at night and she was fine all night. The youngest however woke up 3 times, then I put a disp. on her and she slept again. So, it averages out to be about 15 diapers a week. But when we go out (because my dipes are just not that absorbant. These are like the 3rd and 4th kids they've been used on in the majority) we use disposables too.<br>
I buy a 64 pack once a month and it lasts fine.

My DD sleeps better in a sposie at night, too. We had to use so much cloth to keep from getting the bed wet that her little bum was waaaaayyy up higher than the rest of her body - I'm sure it it wasn't terribly comfortable for her.

Both of my kids sleep in disposables. Sleep is more important IMO than a few sposies a night.<br><br>
A full night of sleep can do wonders on a mommy's sanity <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

lol, well....I tried again lastnight thinking he would sttn again...NOPE! He woke up soaked in front--pjs too from a leak. The diaper was dry so I have a feeling it was the fit of the pampers on him or something. Oh well, there goes my theory.<br><br>
I would try a swaddlebees but I dont think it would hold. I used one yesterday with a cottonbabies insert when we went to the park and the thigh area wicked! WTH?
