    Default Tips for overnight nappy change?

    Hi all
    My DD is a VERY delicate sleeper. Overnight I haven't been doing a nappy change (after BFing) so I don't wake her...but I have found recently as she's drinking more her nappy is saturated/sometimes wet through in the morning.

    When I have changed her -with minimal fuss in a dimmed room she revs up thinking its playtime and I spend another 30-60 mins trying to resettle her and end up feeding to sleep.

    Anyone got any suggestions on how to handle overnight nappy changes. Shes just under 4mo if that makes any difference.

    Cheers

    Maybe save the feed until after the nappy change. If feeding to sleep works, go with it.

    Default Tips for overnight nappy change?

    Have you tried Babylove DRIwave nappies? We switched to these with DS at about that age due to the saturated overnight nappy, he's now 10 months and these nappies still last him all night. Nappy is very swollen in the morning but lining is not damp.

    I also sprinkle a little curash powder in the nappy before putting it on him.

    I used the next nappy size up for this problem at night. They don't move much so you shouldn't have too much trouble with leakage due to using a larger nappy.

    I now put DS in a size larger than his daytime nappy and put a cloth nappy (an all-in-one is easier as I don't have to put a cover over it as well) over it, we've had no leaks since then and he seems to be sleeping better.

    Do the nappy change first then the feed, much less disruptive

    DD is 5 months I always change her nappy first, then feed and then she's half asleep and will go down super easy. I found if I fed before nappy change 1. I risked leakage on me when feeding 2. She would wake up as I changed her then couldn't go to sleep so it made sense to do nappy first. I would also try a size up in nappies, I use huggies crawler and she would be good all night (9pm to 7am) but I change her if she wakes up... for comfort's sake.

    I do feed, nappy, feed as the change wakes her up enough to feed properly. This way I get another 4-5hr block of sleep.
