I stumbled upon my night time solution and I love it. My oldest daughter (she’s all potty now!) use to fill a diaper over night, but it always got me through. In the end, I used wool over it *just* in case. It was merely for my piece of mind. Now my youngest baby girl used this combo and it works just as great.
So what is it?
I use a BumGenius one-size pocket diaper with two very special inserts – hat’s where the magic comes in.
Artsy Fartsy Foo Foo Hemp (company not currently in business) & a bamboo/zorb combo insert. The place I purchased the second insert no longer makes them, but I did find this shop that make a very similar product.
If you go this route, be sure to place the hemp insert on top of the other one (closest to baby). The hemp absorbs so quickly. It’s amazing and I think the biggest reason I never have leaks.
So this is my combo.
#1 Artsy Fartsy Foo Foo
This shop stocks on the 5th & 20th of the month (not currently). Be fast because she sells out crazy fast. I’m talking under a minute in most cases.
#2 Bamboo/Zorb doubler
These aren’t exactly what I use, but very similar! Found them here on Etsy.
#3 Pocket Diaper
I mostly use a bumGenius, but I have also used Fuzzibunz One-Size, Swaddlebees Econappi, Smartipants & Thirsties Duo Diapers with great success.
If pocket diapers aren’t your thing, the other great solution that I have used, and do when I’m out of my combo items, is a fitted. I have found Goodmamas to be absorbent enough to get them through the night. I typically cover with a Thirsties Duo or interlock wool.
Try Thirsties Duo Wraps. I love these covers. They also now come in snaps and cute designs!
If PUL’s not your thing or you want a little more protection try interlock wool like these from Sloomb.
I would like to mention that as your child gets older putting wool or other pants over their diaper is a GREAT idea. I have the most disgusting and embarrassing photo of my daughter (which I won’t be posting) that came about as the result of curiosity and no pants one fateful morning. I was pregnant and it wasn’t pretty!
Also, wool like what’s pictured above is a great second line of defense for leaks overnight 🙂
