Night worthy preschooler diaper

Ds 4 is leaking in his overnight pullups (sposie) almost every night. I think it's just too much all at once and it goes out the side.

We switched to sposies at nights due to ammonia but I'm willing to try again.

Suggestions? We've done Pfs but he can soak one during nap. He's big 43 lbs 43", so the bigger the fluff I don't know if we have a cover big enough.

Thirsties size 2 pocket w/ the insert that comes with it and one of Thirsties size 2 bamboo prefolds. I've not yet seen it fail and it's been challenged

Rainshine Design's Stay-Dry Nightime fitted. LOVE them for my heavy-wetting toddler/bed-wetting preschooler.
Holden's Landing Toddler BedBug is another great overnight fitted.

Superundies Overnights or Ladder Hill Designs Trainers. Superundies pockets can work too if stuffed right. DD1 wears these and she is 44 inches and 45 lbs. I'd go for a trainer since you eventually want the child to be able to go potty in the nighttime if they feel a need. Just my 2 cents.

Re: Night worthy preschooler diaper

Can't help you with what to stuff it because my preschooler isn't a heavy wetting but we are having lots of luck with the Snap EZ pocket trainers and the Bumwear fleece lined pocket trainers. I actually like the Snap EZ ones a bit more, size large is a 3T-4T size, we have some good growing room too. They also have youth sizes.

We use a BG OS MF insert and a Joey Bunz Med Hemp insert. I've used these 2 inserts for nighttime for well over a year now and they still hold him at night. It is only holds about 20oz fully saturated though (I tested recently with water).

Re: Night worthy preschooler diaper

OH I was having the exact same problem! We were using the overnight Huggies PullUps and every.single.night without fail my 4 year old would leak through and onto the bed and mattress. Early this week I bought a LoveyBums XL wool cover, the kind with snaps and a Rumparooz 6 hour hemp soaker. Voila, problem solved. He'd never worn a cloth diaper before but I would just distract him after putting it on and after about 3-5 minutes he completely forgot what he was wearing. Its awesome not to have to wash sheets every morning.

I use XXL Fuzzi Bunz on my almost 5 year old. Stuffed with 2 prefolds & the MF insert it came with. He has diabetes & pees a lot yet these work wonderfully. He is 41 lbs & 40 inches.

Agreed - I love Ladder Hill Designs. We would stuff with a flip organic prefold or a Thirsties duo prefold. For my super wetter I would also stuff with a Thirsties duo insert as a doubler.

I usually throw a wool soaker, shorties or longies (depending on the season) to make it bulletproof (just for my heavy wetter - my other two never needed this).

Re: Night worthy preschooler diaper

Also for my smaller kids I have done a sposie/fitted/wool combo. LOL

Sposie first, then a fitted on top, and a soaker over. Or you could do a fitted, then a sposie, then wool.
