My LO is in a mix if cloth diapers and pampers. We switched back to
disposables a few weeks ago because of issues with leaking and him
waking up fussing from feeling wet at night.
He generally sleeps 3 hour stretches at night, but i feel like i am on the brink of getting him to go longer. One of the issues is not having a diaper that keeps him dry enough and doesn't leak to get through the night without a change.
Today and Tonight for example he has been sleeping really well. He BF and was changed at 9pm. Slept till midnight. Gave him a 6oz bottle of expressed BF. He hungrily drank it all and fell sound asleep 5 mins later. 3 am he woke up like normal. I did our normal nurse for that time. One side maybe 15 mins. Again right back to sleep no diaper change because not poopy. About 4 am i hear him fussing in cradle. He kept it up for about 20 mins. No crying just grunting and lots of movement. I Decided he wasnt going back to sleep and needed to be changed. He had a HUGE wet diaper that leaked at top and soaked onesie. It was as saturated as a disposable can get.
That diaper had been on for 7 hours. I know people who's babies are going 12 hrs in a disposable. So clearly I have a heavy wetter. Is it possible something is wrong that he pees so much? I asked pedi and he wasnt concerned because he is thriving. He weighed 12 lbs at 2 month visit and was a 23.5 inches. He is in Pampers Swaddlers size 2.
Any ideas on what i try for a diaper that will
get us through from 9pm-7am without needing to be changed (assuming no
poop) and wont leak? I know there are pampers overnights that claim to
be 12 hr, but from what I've seen they are only size 3 and up.
I am desperate. This has happened 3 times over the past 3 weeks. I like giving him the big bottle at midnight because i feel like its my only chance to pack enough BF in him if i want to ever get 5 hours of straight sleep. I feel like we are sooo close, but the diaper thing is killing me.PS..he has also can leaked through a pampers in a long afternoon nap 3+ hours if it wasn't changed just before nap.
