I just came across this range of products,intended for incontinent adults, <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> while looking for a solution for my DS who is a daytime grad, but refusing the potty and diaper at night.<br><br>
I have tried a range of things, and most recently have been using a wool blanket under PFs topped with a fleece blanket, but these look like a great solution to cut down on my laundry...also inexpensive, and bigger, for my rolling around cosleeping LO.<br><br><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FPriva-Ultra-Waterproof-Sheet-Protector%2Fdp%2FB000FOA7C2%2Fref%3Dpd_sim_hpc_title_4" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/Priva-Ultra-Wa...im_hpc_title_4</a><br><br>
and these too, a little smaller, and even cheaper<br><br><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FSofnit-Washable-Underpads-Toplayer-Absorbency%2Fdp%2FB000FEGUFA%2Fref%3Dpd_sim_hpc_title_1" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/Sofnit-Washabl...im_hpc_title_1</a>

i like the idea of the reclaimed pads, but do they stay wet on top after pees? I want something that will draw the moisture away and into the layer without staying soaked on top so I feel it every night.

I use the reclaimed pads. I like the fact that we BOTH feel wet: I can be too groggy to change a diaper, but I will get up to change a pad both because it's easier and because it effects both of us.<br><br>
I also think it's helped Terran associate the feeling of a full bladder with the subsequent dampness.<br><br>
I've heard fleece throws recommended for what you are looking for, maybe on top of the pads; i've never had a pad soak through, just get a bit uncomfortable. Even so, I spent about $30 on reclaimed pads, originally intended just for the birth, and that is plenty to get us through 1-2 nights even changing them out after every pee.

Until they start rolling around, I've had my kids lay on top of a cotton prefold diaper on top of the reclaimed pads. When I feel it wet, I take out the wet diaper, and put a dry one under. And oh, I have two boys, so I also put a light baby blanket over them so the sheets don't get sprayed.<br><br>
When they get older, it gets complicated. I would have to get up to change the pad as well as our top sheet. My little one is not quite three months now, so he hasn't started rolling around at night. I'm thinking of putting him in a motherese diaper without a cover so that I don't have to get up to change the top sheet. But I will still have to change the pad underneath though. We'll see what happens.

I use Encompass underpads, I also have a Priva but the Encompass are by far the better of the two - I bought mine at a thrift store though, I don't know if you could order them from the company.

Found Encompass underpads online here: <a href="http://www.medtexonline.com/catalog/item/4501726/4522137.htm" target="_blank">http://www.medtexonline.com/catalog/...26/4522137.htm</a><br><br>
Seems to work out to less than $6 a pad. I hope that's the same one you're talking about.
