What are you ladies currently using for night time? After some trial and error, I'm using the BG 4.0's with both the regular insert and the infant insert as a doubler. She's not waking up wet, but her pj pants always smell like urine really bad so I know some is getting out through the legs or somewhere, just enough to make her stink. I have some babykicks hemp inserts that I'm thinking of trying tonight and just laying inside the diaper. I'm just afraid it's going to get too bulky with too many inserts. Just curious what other ladies are using, especially for heavy wetters?

I have heard it's easy to get leg leaks with overstuffed pockets. I have used fitteds or occasionally flats with wool covers ever since M was 4-5 months old and I've only had leaks like twice.

My favorite night solutions have been:

Greenchild bamboo pocket fitted
Happy Hempy pocket fitted
Neat folded flat
Guerilla Fluff O2 fitted shell

Thirsties hemp prefold
Sherpa and/or hemp doublers
Padfolded flat or two in a pinch

Wool (sized up to cover all the fluff):
Woollybottoms soaker
Disana soaker
Loveybums interlock wool soaker
Sbish soaker (not really worth the money IMO)

I also use Woollybottoms footies as PJ pants. She's been wearing the same pair for MONTHS and they are only now starting to fit


Edit: I have also used Bummis whisper pant pull on covers at night, they work great!

We are currently loving Sbish fitteds under fleece or sometimes Thirsties covers.

Sposies. Peter gets awful rashes if he sits in any cloth diaper over night.

We can use any of our pockets as long as we use two inserts (one regular and one newborn). Thankfully, because we went through a month or so of leaks EVERY night.

Sposies. Didn't want to try to figure anything else out.

Pocket with a MF and a wool insert. Also a wool shortie. Haven't had a single problem.

I can use about any fitted with a good cover. I must not have a super soaker because she rarely leaks.

Last night, I used a Flip cover and stuffed a Flip stay dry insert, 1 regular BG insert and a newborn insert. No gaps at all and she was dry on the outside but her pants still reeked of pee. So frustrating. I'm going to try a fitted with a hemp insert and see if it's any better. Don't really want to deal with wool, but may end up giving it a try or just going back to disposables for night time. Good news is she's not actually wet at all on the outside and the stay dry insert really does keep her bum dry. There must be just enough moisture getting out to make it smell though. It may be something I'll just have to live with. And maybe my nose is more sensitive since I'm preggers!

normally she wears a best bottom cover with the hemp/cotton best bottom overnight set (which is a day time insert with a night time insert added). Works all night long with no leaks.
Every once in a while she will sleep in a BGE (that is what our stash is mainly made up of for day time) if the best bottoms arent clean. Or a greenchild creations bamboo fitted with a bamboo insert added and a best bottom or thirsties cover.
I have a wool cover that i need to wash and will use soon. We used wool covers before but she outgrew them and i just got another one recently used.
