we've been using cloth diapers since birth, but our 7 mo old is a big wetter at night. since he sleeps with us in our bed we spent 2 weeks waking up in the middle of the night to a soaked bed. for the last 2 weeks we've put him in a chlorine-free disposable right before bed and he sleeps all the way through until morning (waking up for occasional feeds) w/o wetting our bed! we're very anti-disposables and have noticed a rash starting int he a.m. but we're not sure what else to do since we all get more sleep this way. we've tried doubling up contours and also using pocket diapers with extra inserts...<br><br>
other brands people recommend? i should mention our son is about 23 lbs and 30 in so he's a big guy!

What kind of diapers have you tried at night? Some diapers will gape at the legs with extra stuffing in them, letting pee leak out. I have really good results with BG 2.0 using the CB microfiber insert and a hemp doubler under that- no leaks all night with a heavy wetter. Another nighttime combination that works great for us is a contour (snappi) with a flannel/microfiber liner (flannel side against skin) and hemp under that. Snappi it up and throw a Stacinator fleece cover over it (heavy duty one) and DS is good to go for the night.

Have you tried an all hemp fitted? When I went through this with my now 3 yo, we started using hemp fitteds from <a href="http://www.crystalscloth.com" target="_blank">Crystal's Cloth</a> or happy hempy's stuffed with 2 inserts. We either used a wool cover or a bummis cover.

we've used cotton contours w/ blue penguin covers and also bum geuises (<a href="http://www.cottonbabies.com/index.php?cPath=98)" target="_blank">http://www.cottonbabies.com/index.php?cPath=98)</a>. we love both during the day but at night he either leaks it so we wake up or the wet diaper wakes him up!<br><br>
we used pullon wool soakers when he was a baby but now they seem so hard to get on the wiggleworm

My Elias is a huge wetter at night..we cosleep and he nurses all night so it all comes right out. The only system I use at night is a fitted or prefold under wool longies or shorties. If I use a prefold I use a hemp or microfiber/terry doubler.

Have you tried putting a wool soaker or longies on over his night-time diaper, even if it is a pocket? It adds another layer of leak protection. I've just started doing this with great results and, after asking around a little, found that lots of other CDing moms do this too.
