Hi All,<br><br>
I am just building up a stash for my 6wk old baby. Right now I have 1 PUL cover and 24 CPF's. Is there a way I can make this work for night time diapering?<br><br>
I have 6 more covers including 1 wool that I am purchasing as soon as my paypal validates.<br><br>
I'm not sure I can fits 2 CPF's in this cover. Is there a way to fold it to make it more absorbant?<br><br>
During the day how often do you all change your little ones? Does a fleece liner allow you to extend the time between diaper changes?<br><br>
TIA <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

For night time you could try tri-folding a cpf down the center of the cpf. This would keep it from being so bulky, but would had more layers in the center where needed. I've used a cpf with a doubler at night and it's held up. You might want to invest in just a few hemp doublers for night time. I have Joey Bunz ?? from Baby Kicks/Hemparoo and a few from Growing Greens that work great.<br><br>
I don't think a fleece liner allows you to go longer between changes (once the diaper is soaked it's soaked), but it does keep baby feeling drier. I use either fleece topped doublers or a piece of fleece fabric in just about anything that's not lined with fleece. It keeps Zane's bum feeling nice and dry.<br><br>
I check Zane about every hour or so during the day if we're at home and he's awake. However, when we're out and about it can be as long as 2-3 hours. At night he sleeps in a fleece lined fitted diaper with wool cover or a Fuzzi Bunz with two inserts. He can go as long as 7-8 hours and wakes up feeling nice and dry. He has slept this long in a cpf with doubler too.<br><br>
Good luck!!<br><br>
