do you just put on the SOS diaper with the doubler it came with then maybe a wool cover or something?? could i try 2 doublers?? my dtr is a pretty heavy wetter most of the time at night (or maybe in the wee hrs of the morning when she wakes a bit!) but some mornings she does wake up dry. she is 23 months just about.<br><br>
so we used to do ezzigear with a doubler then a wool cover but she seemed so wet most mornings we started getting lazy and using sposies <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: at night again. she never leaked outa the dipes just thought she might be cold or feel yukky even with fleece topped doubler b/c the diaper was soaked from end to end.<br><br>
any input would help b/c i have two brand new SOS dipes just hangin out on top of the dryer and i dont want a disaster if i can avoid it. thanks.

Well no matter what I put DS in, he waks up SOAKED! But yes, we use SOS with two hemp doublers and a Celtic Wool cover for night. My DS is 26 months and a heavy night wetter.

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch"> My sos didn't come with a doubler. But I do use it with a doubler and usually my wool butt sweater pants I made. Unless DS drank a ton before he went to sleep this works well.

Mine didn't come with a doubler either. I think it is an addon. I use mine with a doubler that I got with my growing greens. Then a wool soaker over that.<br><br>
I have had babies wake up plenty went in sposies too. Only difference is, when they wake up soaked in cloth, there are no gross gel bead explosions. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/grossedout.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="gross">

my dd is 4 months old. we use an sos with the doubler (yes, they are optional and cost extra) with a wool cover or longies. i have had great luck with the sos and we use them every night.<br><br>
some mama here, can't remember who, used a wool liner outside of the diaper and under the cover. other mamas tried this and said it worked awesome. this would be a good idea for a super soaker as the wool forces the diaper to absorb more.

I put an all-hemp SOS on Lexi w/the fleece topped doubler under a wool cover- either a Loveybums, Celtic Wolf or Kiwi Pie. She does get a rash on her belly where the wet dipe touches her <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">, and it doesn't happen with our other nightime fitteds (FCB Nightlights) but they do stand up to a heavy wetter overnight w/the doubler, IME

An all-hemp SOS with a fleece-topped doubler with a wool soaker works well for us, but my 23 mo dd is usually only a moderate wetter. Rarely the entire diaper is soaked, but with the wool soakers we haven't had a leak yet!

Every single night ds1 wears an all hemp SOS with a fleece topped hemp doubler, with a Sugarpeas wool flannel cover. It is a perfect combo for us - never a leak, and not ridiculously bulky.

My dd is a heavy wetter as well. I use an SOS with a fleece topped doubler and wool longies. Most mornings the whole diaper is soaked, not a dry spot on it, but it doesn't seem to bother her at all. I love my...I mean her SOS's! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

thanks so much for the info!!! wow! i will try some of those combinations out. i have a LL wool soaker that is kinda big but works well for bulk. i just got a stacinator stretch wool cover so i thought i might give that a go. my mom knitted some soakers but i am not sure i will be able to convince her they are pyjamas!!! it would be good to get away from sposies at night again. i guess pee is just as cold in the sposie as it is in a cloth diaper. maybe even warmer with the wool cover!! i bought the hand dye hemp fleece diapers. i hope those are the right ones. they feel very thick. i bought a used one off ebay and i guess it has had it b/c it just doesnt feel the same. it is a plain beige colour with a sage coloured serging on it. guess that is why someone was selling it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> !

Yes, I use sos overnight and my little boy is almost 26 months ... often he does not pee at night ... but IF he does he FLOODS the diaper. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
I use a SOS with two doublers and wool cover, or SOS with one doubler and one wool doubler under it with a wool cover. Either option works very well!

wowee!! just had to post and say this is a great nighttime solution for us and worked amazingly well!! it felt like she was just damp this morning! i think she did all the peeing between 5 and 7 but still it was amazing that she wasnt cold, wet and clammy!! i think maybe just maybe the cloth helps her not to feel so free with the pee. i mean if i got her up at 5 she would be totally dry partly b/c she does better in the cloth b/c it is cloth. hope that makes sense. i think she is on her way to potty training but i think you still need a night dipe for quite a while so i am so glad we found this and get outa sposies at night! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Glad it worked for you! We use all hemp SOS with one doubler (the fleece topped ones they come with) and a wool cover or pants. Some mornings he wakes up soaked and some just a little wet but we have never had leaks with this system.

We use Nightlights and wool for night time, but as a back up, for when I haven't done laundry, I have 2 all hemp SOS that we use. I use then with a Little Lounging Lizards hemp stuffer folded up inside the diaper and then the wool soaker (usually, sometimes wool pants) over. Holden *almost* always wakes up dry in this.<br><br>
Finding the right night solution is tough - glad you found something that works for you <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
