|Hello everyone this is my first time visiting the ME site & so far it has been incredibly helpful. I'm sure the answer to my question is probably somewhere in the archives here but I really just need some advice from more experienced CD folks than myself.
My daughter is 9 1/2 mos. & wears cloth all the time but this summer we've been sleeping her in a chlorine free disposable b/c after she got about 6 or 7 mos. every morning we'd wake up to her being totally soaked along with the blanket/sheet below her....What protocol can I follow for night-time to ensure she stays somewhat dry?
She sleeps with me at night & I change her everytime she wakes up fussing with a wet dipe but it seems that as she's gotten older she just pees in her sleep or something b/c I no longer am waked by her for a diaper change...
The CDs we use are really just whatever we can find at our local baby-consignment place or get as hand-me-downs(we can't afford new stuff). usually its just a cover & plain cotton prefold, with snappi.
At night we'd use 2 thick prefolds but as i said now we're using those pesky disposables for sleeping. The brands we have are bummi, swaddlebees, gerber (for the prefolds) & my favorite- Mother ease. We were recently given a bunch of hand-me-down one-size ME diapers, liners, & other older one-size diapers as well.
If anyone out there has any advice on how we can get back to using cloth at night I'd appreciate SO much. Thanks for your time!
