My 8 month old DS is a heavy wetter at night and it seemed that even if I did change him he'd still be wet through by morning.
So the last week I've been using a Stanley knife to cut 2 vertical slits from the band in the front of the nappy down to the middle fold, then putting that nappy on, with a second one on the outside of it. His clothes have been dry every morning since, and I don't have to do middle of the night changes anymore.
We do not have issues with DD wetting through Baby Love nappies at night. We use Baby Love at night and Aldi during the day.
I agree with going a size up, thats what we do. No issues at all and DD is a heavy wetter at night.
Try putting a folded chux in there (my parents did that with me but with cloth nappies) it might work
There is only one sure fire way to stop a night nappy leaking and that is to change it more often. They are not designed to have urine in them all night. My DD very very rarely has a pee through nappy and she is a heavy wetter she has 75 mls to 85 mls an hour of fluid over night I change her 4 hourly and yer very rarely leaks through.
If you dont want to change it as often maybe add an over night pad into the nappy and cut the plastic at the back so it still soaks through it can work as a doubler
Sucess last night, I put a nappy cover over a toddler pull up and it didn't leak!! Wish me luck for tonight.
DS is almost 8 months and we have had this problem a few times. It always correlates with a growth spurt. He is a tall (74cms) and skinny baby (7.2kgs)
so I find that they leak up the back and the through the legs. I use Babylove during the day and Huggies at night. I find that yes, sometimes he did leak through the Huggies but it was less frequent than the Babylove. I found going up a size worked for us, everytime he had a phase of weeing through at night.
