My DD is a toddler (19 mos, 29 lbs or so) and we just started CDing. I have HH pockets (patterned and solid colors), 1 BG 2.0 AIO, a few random fitteds (some hemp, some cotton, some look like they used to be prefolds), and stuffers, a couple of fleece covers, NB prefolds that I found, felt, and a package of plastic gerber pants (but they might be too small, those are a medium). Some of the fitteds I have are medium too, and that might be one of our issues. I also have about 3 garbage bags of baby clothes and momma clothes that are stained but clean that I can use to make additional inserts, and a bunch of towels (standard bathroom cotton and microfiber) etc. I did order a brand named cover, bumkins or something, I don't recall, used off of diaperswappers but its not here yet.<br><br>
I can understand that I need to change DD more often during the day. Its something I'm adjusting to. Unfortunately, changing her at night is really impossible, unless I want her up wandering the house at 3am. Nothing works. She does drink more at night, having a bottle before bed, and bits of a bottle throughout the night, but the disposables generally handled it ok, albiet filled to capacity in the AM. My budget is pretty limited, so maybe some combination of what I have would work but I'm just not figuring it out. We're not talking slight leaks here either, but a RIVER. She soaks a good 2/3 of the top half of the bed (where she sleeps) straight through all the blankets and all the sheets, and generally gets us as well.<br><br>
I know there have been a hundred threads on this already, and I've read a bunch of them. I just don't know what to do next. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

what worked best for my super soaker was a happy hempy stuffed with a microfiber insert on top of a hemp stuffer, all of this covered with a Stacinator deluxe fleece cover. We also used solid happy heiny's stuffed with 2-3 inserts (the top one being microfiber)and if the soaking was SUPER bad, I would top THAT with a fleece or wool cover.

On my 3yo bedwetter I use a HempBabies flat (hemp/cotton, kite fold) with a Thirsties infant prefold folded in, Snappied with Aristocrats cover. IMO any flat will work I just use it to contain the PF. Got my Aristocrat cheap at clothdiapersnmore.com<br><br>
I didn't have a ton of money to spend and the opinions and choices made me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:<br><br>
With the exception of the wool I used what I had on hand.

With what you already have......have you tried this combo?<br>
hemp fitted with a prefold or microfiber trifolded on the outside of it and covered with a fleece cover<br><br>
My ds is a heavy wetter and an all night nurser. The only things that work for him is a 1)dream eze fitted with a babykicks hemp insert on the outside of the fitted covered with a stacinator fleece cover<br>
2) very baby simply nights hemp fitted with doubler covered with the fleece cover<br>
3) drybees fleece night time pocket diaper with 2 hemp inserts wrapped with a microfiber towel or 2 hemp inserts and a cotton babies one size insert<br><br><br>
I have also heard of someone using a fitted dipe and putting the bg 2.0 AIO over top of it for night use.<br><br>
Good luck. I hope that you find something that will save you from the river<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
