What do you use for nighttime

My 5 and 4 year old are still in diapers at night, and we've been using sposies. Is there a inexpensive cloth option for heavy soakers/ accidents?

I use sposies. I can't find a cloth pull up big enough for my 7 year old and 4 1/2 year old and the ones I can find can't fit enough absorbency in them.

BG 4.0 stuffed with a Flip nighttime insert. It holds up all night with nursing before bed, once in the early morning, then again right when she wakes.

I'm wondering if I can do some kind of double prefold in a Wool soaker or flip or something. I'm sooooo tired of buying sposies

Superundies overnights!! They hold a lot and are very comfy ( or so my 5 year old says). She can pull them up and down too so if she does wake up in time she can use the potty.

Re: What do you use for nighttime

I just, finally, found something I like. Snap-Ez pocket trainers. I stuff them with MF, hemp, and just started adding the grovia cotton too

The newer BG OS MF are a little wide for them. The older MF work well, and I have some MF for large Bumwear inserts that are that same size as the older BG. I use our medium hemp joey bunz and I've started adding the Grovia cotton booster, I add it across the back to have absorbency on the sides by the snaps in case the pee has the ability to pool over there.

They have youth sizes. My 3 year old in 3T is in larges with alot of room to grow.

Re: What do you use for nighttime

An organic cotton flip insert or a large cotton flannel receiving blanket flat (approx 36" x 32") with a hemp doubler in a wool cover has worked well for us for dd1. We have been using that since she was 1 yr old and I still put her in it as a just in case at 3.5 yrs. On the occasion she has an accident it still holds it all.

On my 9 mo. old I have been using a large sized gmd flat with a hemp doubler and a disana soaker. That works for 12+ hrs and she nurses 1-2 times during the night still.

Re: What do you use for nighttime

Toddlerease fitteds with a hemp or bamboo doubler under Disana soakers work well for my 4 y/o. Or a Thirsties prefold in a Capri cover. If your LOs are over 40 pounds FuzziBunz XL fits up to 60 pounds I think and they're big enough to really stuff.
