We have cd our daughter since she was born, and she has been cloth diapered at night as well. We use small Sandy's diapers, and have only recently started using some of the Sandy's liners. She is heavy wetter, but only gets up once a night. We don't really need the liners, but put them in with the hopes that she may sleep longer!
So, at bedtime we put in either one or two Sandy's liners, and a fleece liner on top. I agree with Karen C that it helps keep the pee from sitting right on her bottom. We don't use a barrier cream at all with her, but have been very lucky that she doesn't have a sensitive bum. I think if I was worried about diaper rash, I might consider using a diaper rash cream like zinc or Burt's Bees. Not Destin though - the fish oil may not wash out of the diapers.
Just give it a shot - you won't know what works for your own baby until you try it!
: I have just started cloth diapering with mother ease one size and af covers. This is my third child but the first one in cd's. I have just read enough about the dangers of disposables to change my mind (environment to gel bleach not to mention cost) so I have switched. I am surprised by how easy it has been. I have a question about night diapering, I haven't taken that plunge yet, the baby is not sleeping through the night yet (8 months) and still nursing 4plus times (ooohh). How many layers should I use and what covers work the best (maybe wool?) I dont want to be changing sheets during the night or diapers for that matter, any suggestions would be appreciated
