So I am just starting out with CDing and I love love love it so far. My question is, is it possible to go overnight with one diaper? Last night I put DD in her Fuzzibunz, then I added a Jamtots hemp fleece doubler. This was at 7:30, at 11 she woke up because her diaper was soaked. I then put her in a disposable <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> Apparently she is a very heavy wetter, and I can't see putting another doubler in her diaper, it was so huge as it was! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Am I just going to have to get used to changing her a couple times a night?

I have tried pockets at night and sometimes they are fine. The other night I used one without wool and DS leaked right through and peed all over both of us. Try figuring out the warm sensation at 4:00 am <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">. What seems to work without fail is a trifolded regular prefold inside our brown edge GMD prefolds with either a wool soaker or longies over the top. It is ok if it is huge DS doesn't mind.

I second the prefold, doubler, and wool option.<br><br>
GMD stands for <a href="http://www.greenmountaindiapers.com" target="_blank">www.greenmountaindiapers.com</a>. The different colors on the edges correspond to different sizes.

I made some fleece-topped doublers, and I use those inside a yellow-edged prefold, with a wool soaker.<br><br>
When I did use FB (with my older dd), I had 2 inserts and a hemp insert -- her butt was huuuuuuuuuuge. And it didn't always work!

my ds was a very heavy wetter up until he night weaned...<br><br>
our solution was 2 prefolds inside a fuzzi bun....He had a hugest cd butt ever but it held him through the night...<br><br>
we are about to have baby#2 and are going all organic...anyone have a fitted/prefold solution that does not include a pocket...<br><br>
preferably with a wool cover (I am knitting one now with the intention of felting it)

Well tonight I wrapped a trifolded prefold over the fb insert and then topped it with a hemp fleece doubler and stuck it in a fb and DD's butt was 2 inches above her head! It didn't look comfortable! Is it ok if a babies butt is higher than their heads while they sleep?

Every night is different for us, but usually if I double insert my pockets they'll last all night. Sometimes I will put a prefold (although bulky) in the pocket and that lasts really good too. Other nights, I just have to change him and that's all there is to it. I'm not a fan of the middle of the night changes, but I sleep with my youngest and I keep an extra diaper beside the bed so it doesn't completely disrupt our sleep.

It does squish down some. DS sleeps on his side mostly.

I use FB at nite too. I stuff it with a hemp babies and an insert. No leaks so far with that combo for about a month. I consider him to be a pretty heavy wetter at night. Sometimes I use a pf in place of hemp. That also works well.<br><br>
It does seem pretty huge -my DH calls it his hockey pads <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><br><br>
Three inserts does sound like a lot. Perhaps the wool would work better for you. I've never tried wool, but some of these mamas swear by it! I am waiting on a fleece stacinator which is also supposed to be very nite friendly.

Hemp fitted with a microfiber doubler, topped with a silk liner, under an Aristocrats wool soaker. Leak free at last!

Cotton fitted with a doubler and a wool soaker usually works for us! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I have a very heavy wetter ds!!! I use a FB or Dry bees fleece nite time diaper with 2-3 mirco inserts and 1-2 hemp inserts. It is super bulky so it looks funny. Depending on the night I will change his diaper 0- 1x. I can't use sposies because ds soaks and leaks within 2 hrs. That's why we switched to cloth to begin with when he was 1-2 months old. Ds is allergic to wool so thats now not an option. I actually bought a huge stash of fitteds and wool for him before I knew that!!! He won't even let me come close with a wool cover he freaks out! He gets very bad ezema. I forgot ds gets really red boy parts (only overnight) if I don't use diaper cream now so at night I line his Fb or DB with a fleece liner and use diaper creams that are ok for cloth diapers. No more red parts and hardly no more leaks! Just if I could use wool then no more leaks ever!!! Good luck!!!

My 7 month old is a heavy wetter. At night, we use a premium prefold with an infant prefold (I can't figure out how to put the infant in and still fold the premium, so I snappi the premium and then just put the infant over that/inside the cover) in a Bummi's Super Whisper Wrap cover. We never have leaks at night. He does have a big butt like that, but it works and he seems comfortable.

my ds's is like this too when I try to use CD at night, and he'll still soak right through them! Plus, he would wake up all the time because he was uncomfortable. He's a helicopter baby in bed, so it was really hard for him to maneuver with his huge bootie <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Right now, unfortunately, I'm using toddler night time pull ups. They're the only thing I have found that don't leak for my super heavy night wetter. I love reading the posts here, and when I find something that I haven't tried yet, I'll be sure to give it a shot!

We generally use prefolds + a bummis cover overnight. The only time this combo failed was during his 6 month growth spurt--we had about a week of out-peeing that combination.<br><br>
I can stuff a pocket with one of our prefolds (now; 16 months) and it'll stand up for 12 hours. Never tried it before recently , though. A couple of weeks back, he was teething, ate some acidic foods, and got a bad diaper rash. A&D with a prefold wasn't cutting it to keep the problem down overnight, so I tried the pocket+prefold without cream. It lasted all night, and the rash was gone in the morning.
