I have a number of moms who've asked for nighttime diapers for their heavywetters. I've made a couple in the past but Nathan either doesn't pee in the night or gets changed in the night so he's terrible to test on.<br><br>
Can anyone give me advice on making nighttime diapers for heavywetters? I do have hemp but not a ton, I also have a little organic sherpa, some regular sherpa, some cotton french terry and lots of flannel. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br>
Thanks! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/luxlove.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="throb">

IME hemp fleece is awesome for night dipes. It's fluffy and absorbent... mine are pockets so I can't tell you what to put inside, lol. My inserts are 5 layer trifolded to make 9 layers of hemp french terry and hemp fleece.<br><br>
Oh, and IMO a good fleece is important for night dipes because it gives that stay dry feeling. I know some people want all natural fabrics but if they don't you can get good anti-pill micro at Jo-Ann's.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I like our Firefly night diapers. They look like they are pretty much the same pattern as the regular Fireflys except that there is an extra layer in each part. So three layers of organic cotton fleece in the body, and three layers in each wing. With the doubler, I think also three layers, it is a total of 12 layers of organic cotton fleece. I find that 9 layers, without the doubler, is fine for us, but Jack is a moderate wetter. I use a Fuzeasy wool cover over it, the system works great.<br><br>
I prefer no fleece liner, but I know I lot of mamas like it for night.<br><br>
HTH!

Thanks guys - it's time for me to push foward but I think most are saying 9-12 layers is right. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

I *heart* my fluffymail night dipes (I just wish I could BUY them. lol) and if I had a serger, i'd make my own. hehe. I *think* there are 2 layers (could be 3 though) in the body, and they use either hemp or OC, and then the inserts are square tri-folds, and currently they only sell the heavy wetter ones with the NLs, and they are 3 layers of hemp/OC. meaning 9 layers in the insert + 2 or 3 from the body...I think it's just 2 though.<br><br>
You could easily do your current fitted pattern like that though, just do fleece or suede on the top layer of the diaper, so you have a place to insert the soaker. I would think sherpa for the body would be DIVINE!<br><br>
as to the VBSN question, I think there are 2-3 layers in the body, and then a big diaper-sized soaker made up of 2 layers (the smaller leaf) and I think 4 layers + fleece, if i'm not mistaken.
