WFMW - Stopping nighttime leaks

Kaitlyn definitely inherited my bladder. It can hold a lot. A LOT. And no matter how much we try to not give her a lot to drink before bed, she somehow manages to store it all up and wake up with a very full diaper.

She very rarely would soak through during the night, but in the morning it was always a race to get her diaper changed before she went to the bathroom again. We seldom won the race, and she would end up with wet PJ's. (Or worse, she would pee while we were changing her.)

Then one day I discovered these:

And there was much rejoicing throughout the land!

They work so well for us. Since we've switched to using them at night, we haven't had one problem with leaks. Woohoo!

If your kids are still in diapers, and if they have trouble with leaks at night (or first thing in the morning) I highly recommend these!

Head over to Rocks in My Dryer for more Works for Me Wednesday tips and ideas.

We will be buying these today! My son leaks almost every night no matter what we do!
Thanks for the suggestion!

Great to hear they work! We've had on and off problems with leaks, but we'll look into getting some of these. Have a nice week!

We used these for a while, and they worked so well we decided to use them all the time. We figured that they weren't too much more expensive than the others, so why not be safe all of the time?

But apparently, you should NOT use them all of the time.... Something in the diapers started turning Moses' legs blue! It would wipe off if I really scrubbed, but it was a little unnerving.

So we switched back to pampers cruisers and haven't had too many leaks since. :)

LOL - thanks for the heads up about the blue legs! We'll stick to using one a day. :-)

We were double diapering until we found these. We would put on one diaper poke a hole in the front and put on another diaper. I have to say these are cheaper than two diapers and they work great!
