What do you use for your newborn? We're using prefolds for Conrad right now. But I don't want to leave him in a wet prefold for a few hours while I sleep and risk him getting a rash. I have some microfleece I can cut up to make some stay-dry liners to protect his bum, but was just wondering what you guys are doing. So for now, we've been doing disposables at night. Blah. With my older son, we used to use pockets and/or fitteds, but had too many leaks so we switched to disposables at night for him too.
We just use the same old prefolds and covers at night. If they are sleeping soundly, they won't pee until they wake up, generally. And I actually find it useful at this point to change him at night so that he wakes up and feeds more efficiently.
DD started needing doublers and then more advanced absorbency when she got to a few months old and slept longer. But not because she was sitting in pee longer, just because she would FLOOD the diaper when she started to wake up, so it had to be able to catch all that pee.
The only times I've really felt the need for stay-dry was for long car rides. We have some fleece liners that work well.
We have started using the pockets at night. I have been using the small inserts (for newborns that work as doublers later) but last night, we had leaking. She got too wet. So I will switch to the full size inserts for tonight. I checked this morning and she is big enough to use them on the smallest setting now. The microfleece from the pockets should protect her skin.
