Help a mama out...

Hi ladies!! Okay so my dd is 14 months old and is a super soaker through and through. We have been CDing for about a year and we still have not found a favorite diaper. We just deal with leaks when they happen and sposie at night.

So here are my questions:
1. Anyone tried thirsties fitteds or duo aio... Thoughts??
2. What can I do for nights??? She sleeps 12 hours at night and is soaked halfway through...
3. Best diaper for my super soaker that won't add a ton of bulk???

Thanks mamas!

Thirsties AIO are one of the LEAST absorbent diapers I have ever owned. Not a fan.

Flip organic inserts would be my first thought. Or fitted with wool.

What all have you tried? How often are you changing?

If you're using pockets, add hemp or bamboo.

If you're wanting an AIO, either use Simplex or BG Elementals or maybe even freetimes.

Sbish multis with wool. That's the only thing my super soaker can use at night and it doesn't even come close to get saturated. We are back to sposies at night though. He all of a sudden cant stand being wet!!!

I have seriously tried everything...except hemp. Just ordered some new bamboo to try out. I change at least every 3 hours during the day. All BG diapers fit my dd funny

You can get sbish fitteds for around $15-16 ppd on fsot. Used sbish is almost better than new because its already prepped. There are lots for sale right now. I'm sure someone will see this and pm you!

Try a OS Simplex and add a hemp babies doubler Probably not good enough at night, but should work for ya during the day.

Re: Help a mama out...

Bamboozles are a very absorbent fitted. I also like Sandys with a Thirsties hemp insert under Disana soaker for nights.
