Fast forward to this week, when we ran out of our overnight disposables. In fact, even before we ran out, we were having leaking issues. I never knew if we'd wake up with a wet bed or not. So rather than buying more disposables and trying to find one of those that would work, I decided it was time to go back to finding a cloth solution.
I bought a Lollidoo a couple of months ago but just never got around to sizing it correctly and trying it out. One of the elastics in the leg opening came undone before I every used it, so I had to figure out a way to thread it through again. Once I sized it correctly (really just guessing), I stuffed it with 2 (count them, two) LoopyDo inserts. I wanted to be stacked up and ready to soak up that pee!
The next morning - dry! No leaks at all. It was a bit of a wrestle to get it sized and snapped properly, but I think it's worth it when I wake up with a dry Little Man.
The other issue I have is the smell. I smell the urine in the middle of the night when he is in cloth. I guess I just have to get used to that and be happy I have a dry baby after 11-12 hours in the same diaper.
On a side note, I tried a fitted and cover that worked, but I don't like how that leaves him to sleep with a sopping wet diaper against his skin all night. I also tried a BG pocket with a regular BG insert and a LoopyDo and it didn't hold up. I may try it with 2 Loopy-Dos to see if that works better.
For now, I'm happy with the Lollidoo and will be looking to snag myself another one. I'm doing diaper laundry every 3 days now, rather than every other, so I'm going to have to have 3 nighttime diapers. Perhaps I'll invest in a SuperDo too.
Here's to Dry Nights!
