The Real Diaper Association conducted the 100% Reusable Cloth Diaper Campaign to help parents choose reusable cloth diapers every time, all the time. We asked experienced cloth diapering parents to share their advice on succeeding with reusable cloth diapers at night. Here is what the experts said...
Your overnight diapers will need to hold a lot of moisture, so be sure you have enough absorbent material to handle it all! Add inserts or doublers–or even just an extra pre-fold–to your existing solution or to your favorite daytime diapers to outfit them for overnight. If you need extra absorbency, consider choosing hemp or bamboo fabrics.
While many parents are successful with PUL at night (particularly with well-stuffed pocket diapers), others switch to wool for increased all-night breathability.
Also consider fleece–many parents recommend fleece pants or pajamas for an extra line of defense.
Pay close attention to a good fit, particularly around the legs. For side-sleeping babies, make sure to also have some extra absorbency around the hips.
Some parents add silk or fleece liners next to baby’s bottom to keep them feeling dry through the night.
