HELP

Cloth nappies, disposies, potty training... the inevitable result of BLW. What goes in, must come out.

R leaks from his diapers EVERY. SINGLE. NIGHT. I just can't anymore. I moved him up a size, no results. I limited his evening water intake, very much against his wishes, nada. What do I doooooo? I can't keep stripping all his bedding and washing it every morning, I have a life to live!!!

When I worked in day care there were some parents who mentioned putting a second diaper on over the top of the first to catch leaks.

Or maybe you can put a cloth diaper cover on over the diaper, or wool pants or something.

For a while with squidge I put on a disposable, then a cloth and a wrap over the top. Caught the leaks, saved my sanity.

Ah, two nappies, good idea. We are just about to try different brands for the puppy (who will not even consider pants at night) because he leaks through every night (although it's clearly the early morning wee that matters as rarely is it more than pjs being wet).

Yes, we're here too, though thankfully not every night. I know it's the morning wee; he was staying dry a while ago, but at the moment I just can't get to him in time because I'm busy with Bee in the mornings. I think it's not the overall volume that's the issue, it's the fact that it's a big wee all at once - nappies just can't absorb quickly enough. Ironically, this never happened when he was wetting overnight, but now it does because he's dry overnight so the wee all comes at once.

Ah, interesting, Lily. I've thought for a while that the puppy was mainly dry because when we get up early for a holiday start there is no wee.

For a while my ds had a disposable nappy on with a terry & wrap over the top as he was leaking every night.

We have this too. Koala gets to watch truck videos in the morning if he gets up and goes to the toilet and takes his (sopping) nappy off during the night. He usually gets up early in the morning for a wee and it makes the difference between leaking and not leaking. But he is a bit older and can go to the toilet at night by himself.

So, last night R was crying at 2:30am and I went in and he was already wet. Changed his pjs and diaper, went in this morning and he was wet again! How can one child produce this much urine? He has plenty of wet diapers during the day already!?!!
