Thank you very much for all of your advice. Baby Lucas has been dry and happy for 5 nights now I bought some fleece it really helps we needed two liners in the diaper at night as well as a fleece liner. Although it hasn't helped him sleep through the night lol ( any advice on that ha ha ha :)
: I agree with the other mommas. You can certainly use your airflow covers overnight. I would start with two liners in the dipe and see if you need to increase or decrease the absorbancy. Maybe put some sort of waterproof pad under your baby the first couple of nights until you are confident that you have your system worked out. And, definitley get some fleece and cut up liners. Just go to walmart or any fabric store and get polyester fleece.
: Have fun!
: : 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
