We are nighttime sposie users. I'm wanting to know how absorbent Tushies are since they don't have that nasty gel stuff. Are you able to leave them on your LO all night long?

when ds was 3 months old, we were using tushies at night... until i felt a river of pee during one of our in-bed night-time nursing sessions. ds is a VERY SUPER DUPER heavy wetter at night. it was then that we switched to cloth at night. the tushies just couldn't handle his massive amounts of pee. 2 toddler prefolds and a hemp insert, all stuffed into a pocket diaper, with a fleece cover on top -- THAT is what it takes to keep the bed dry.<br><br>
we use tushies during the day at daycare. when i'm feeling not so lazy, we use cloth on the weekend; but when i'm feeling lazy, we use tushies on the weekend. though these days, we let ds decide "paper or cloth or underwear" (we're starting to potty learn).

I had a pack of tushies once that my Dad's friend bought for us. My experience was that they are a lot less absorbent than the standard sposies, but a bit more absorbent than ordinary daytime cloth like prefolds or ordinary fitteds. I didn't use them at night, but I think they would probably have not lasted my kids all night without a change.

I don't think they'd work well overnight. I don't care for them, personally. I believe they are much less absorbent than cloth, and less good at containing poop as well. We've gone through periods of using sposies at night. I like the seventh generation brand best. They do have gel in them, but they never leaked on me. If I were going to use sposies during the day, and for some reason couldn't use g-diapers (which I think are the best daytime sposie option), I would use Tushies. But I think you'd really need to change them frequently.<br><br>
My favorite for nighttime are aristocrats wool soakers. They are really amazing. We've never had a leak with one (using fitteds or prefolds underneath).<br><br>
HTH!<br><br>

Yeah, that's definitely true. Any sposie would be, though.
