Using Cloth Diapers at Night

Believe it or not – It is possible to successfully use cloth diapers at night! I did and can still do so with Sophia and have her wake up in dry sheets in the morning. 

Moreaya, on the other hand, is a different story right now.  I’m really struggling with a combination for Moreaya to wake up dry in cloth.

Here’s my experience of cloth diapering at night:

With Sophia, she wore a bumGenius 4.0 Pocket with both inserts until about 5 months. Then I started putting in the OS insert along with a hemp insert underneath. 

This lasted us until about 9 months until she started leaking. For reference, we’re talking wear a diaper for 10-12 hours for nighttime. 

Once we hit around 9 months, I switched to fitteds and Wool Covers.  This is what we still use for her successfully.

Moreaya is a belly sleeper and seems to be a heavy wetter, even at 4 months. I struggle with finding a good combination for her because I don’t want to bulk her up to much in front or between her legs. 

When we have leaks, they are always out the top of the diaper on her belly.

Sooooo… I’m turning to you all! Does anyone have any tips for me to cloth diaper a little belly sleeper? Other than stuff a bunch of hemp or something in the front? I mean, specific diapers that seem to be better for belly sleepers?
