DD still wakes at night 2-4 times a night. With that she's till eating and making her diapers very full in the morning. So full that I have to change the bedding and she needs a bath. Right now I'm trying to get her to eat more in the day as she gets most of her feedings at night so till them what do I do? Are the night time diapes worth it? She just moved up to a size 3 diaper and at night I have been using DS's diapers which are size 4 or 5 depending which one DH gets. This has worked but sometimes if she poops (80% of the time) it comes out on her cloths due to all the room but I don't have to change the bedding. Ideas?
I had the same problem with the night time bottles and diapers, especially now that Jamie isn't waking up to be fed/changed at midnight. Jamie is a Pampers baby but I started using the Huggies overnight diapers when he moved into a size 3 (I couldn't find any Pampers overnight). They don't look particularly thick so I'm not sure how much real difference there is, but they seemed to help for quite a while. For several weeks he didn't leak. Now he sometimes gets leaky again but I think that's because he's bigger. Maybe its time for me to get bigger overnight diapers.
Also if you're going to put Kerrington into bigger diapers, try playing around with the angle of the tabs - instead of pulling the "velcro" straight across try pulling at an angle up or down. This will adjust the fit around the legs and sometimes around the back too. I discovered this when I was dealing with Jamie's daytime mishaps.
We've been using the Huggies Overnights for Levi and they work well. Haven't had a leak yet, but have had some bulging diapers. He even had a blowout before he woke up this morning and it didn't leak out.
