Older child inserts for a cloth pull up

I made my son (5 y o) a cloth pullup to try since he is not ready to night train yet. I am sick of buying disposables that still leak anyway. He loves how soft the fleece is compared to a disposable. The biggest challenge for me though is getting the most absorbency possible without making him feel like he's wearing a diaper. He is complete day trained and has been since about 3 years old. So a big bulky cloth pull up feels very awkward and uncomfortable for him. So I wanted to get some thoughts from those who use cloth pullups at night as to what you use to get lots of absorbency without much bulk.

SuperDo inserts are awesome.

Zorb2 is my favorite. I have a bunch of squares of it that are just serged around the edges and I trifold them.

I agree with BCGamer. Zorb is my all time favorite item when it comes to cloth. My 9 yr old is still not night trained and we used Zorb inserts for her.

Where do I get Zorb? I've heard of it, but not seen it yet.

Re: Older child inserts for a cloth pull up

I could stuff my 8 year olds diaper until he was sleeping on mountain of cloth inserts and it still doesn't work. Cloth by itself in our case never worked. The most bullet proof night diaper routine we have is a Goodnight diaper coupled with a sposie doubler and then a wool soaker that uses 2 layers of wool. I have used Loopy dos and Super dos as day inserts but there is no way on God's green earth any amount of cloth inserts would get him through the night never mind trimness.
