The almighty cloth diaper queen has fallen. Two days ago I bought a package of disposable diapers. Sad Face.

Baby G woke up FIVE times Sunday night, so no one really got a lot of sleep that night. She leaked through five diapers and we ran out of sheets. We resorted to covering her mattress with a large blanket and tucking it under (I know, not the safest in the world). The only diaper that hasn't leaked at night is my trusty Thirsties Fab Fitted/Hemp Insert/Duo Wrap cover and the only nap time diaper that I've trusted is my Mother-ease Sandy's fitted with Stay-dry insert and Londonware fleece cover. Other than that, everything has been leaking. My hemp solutions are not working as they had before moving to California. I don't know if it's the water here, or if baby G has turned into an even heavier wetter than before.  I have no idea what is going on, but I even tried "stripping" my diapers yesterday.

I'm on a mission to fix it, but for now...disposables at night time if the Fab Fitted is dirty :-(



  1. Yeah, we had the same problem after our daughter was about 14 months. I couldn't even get a night time disposable to work and forget about using cloth! It was horrible, wet sheets all the time, and I had no idea what to do. She had NEVER leaked in any diapers before. I figure it was probably an age thing as she has gotten older she pees more at once instead of a little bit at a time. I finally resorted to a disposable with a Flip cover at night. It was the only way I could keep the disposables from leaking and I ended up having to stop using cloth at night because she always woke up red no matter what I did. We still use cloth during the day, but I even have to be careful during the day because one minute she will be dry and the next soaked. We are doing a bit of potty learning so that helps a bit. My best luck at night had always been a Flip cover with prefold and hemp inserts before I opted just to stick with the disposable at night (we don't go threw them that fast and we still save money).

  2. I know lots of people are scared of wool, but you should start researching it. It will be your night time bff if she is wetting heavily.
