View Full Version : I have a heavy wetter
13week old DD who's only just started sleeping through a week ago (bed at 7pm, dreamfeed at 1030, asleep till atleast 6am). she gets a nappy change after her 630pm feed, but not at the 1030pm (in order to keep her asleep) but when i get her out of bed every morning her nappy is soaking, and shes wee'd through her pj's, 2 warps and cot sheets. It doesnt bother her at all, its just alot of mess to clean up every morning. Ive only ever used woolworths select nappys and im wondering if there are other brands that are more absorbent for night time use? I DO NOT want to wake her up to change her nappy in the middle of the night, i want to encourage her to keep sleeping through, so i think the solution is a better nappy, any sudgestions?
we use huggies just at night for that reason, i get a couple of boxes on special but they last months cos we only use one a night. They rarely yet thru unless they've had a lot to drink. Might also be worth you going up a size, get one that is a little on the big side, if that makes sense lol! aldi are pretty good too but huggies on special are just as cheap
Double nappy, put on nappy on her & than another over the top. Put a slit or 2 in the outer of the inside nappy so excess can drain out.
Even in huggies, DS would wet through. He doesnt in a doubled up sposie.
Thanks girls. Ill be trying the double nappy tonight and giving huggies a go in the future. I did think about getting a bigger size but DD has a skinny waist and legs (but she is really long in the body) so even in infant nappys its an effort to get them to seal around her legs and tummy, but her little bum crack peeps up about the back of the nappy :laughing:
I dont use anything other than huggies at night. I use cloth nappies during the day but my little boy is a heavy wetter and there is no way i would trust anything other than huggies overnight.
Sounds crazy, but IMO often it's not the nappies themselves (although I do like getting a bigger size for overnight), it seems to be that they're cold. Apparently it's like a natural instinct to wee to warm themselves up. Particularly for older ones, if they're sleeping on their tummy with bottom up in the air, it means they're a bit cold, and makes the wee run out to the tummy.
I found putting her in warmer clothes or an extra blanket overnight helped so much, and friends did as well. With the weather warming up, the other night I put her in lighter clothing, but apparently the weather's not warm enough because she wet right through again!
