Lets Talk Night Nappies
If there is one thing about cloth nappies that many struggle with its night nappies, but don't despair, cloth nappies overnight are absolutely doable!
The most complicated part about it is that there are several great options to choose from, (and they all work) so I can't just say "use this" but it does mean you can consider what attributes are important to you,
THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND ABOUT NIGHT NAPPIES
- There are 2 key things that make a successful night set up
- Absorption, absorption, absorption - the more the better. Overnight output varies hugely, so you may be one of the lucky ones who can just sneak in an extra insert to your day set up and you're done, but many babies can pee a good couple of cups full over night and that takes some catching.
- A generously sized cover that will extend well past the edges of your nappy and can fit the absorption without being tight. While some setups are trimmer than others, all night nappies are, by nature & necessity bulky. This comes up on social nappy pages all the time, where people say they want to use cloth overnight, but the bulk puts them off. I guess it just comes down to why you are choosing cloth. If its because you want to do the right thing for the future planet, or to save money, or just because you don't like disposables, then get used to the idea, your bubs is gonna have bumble bee butt at night, and get on with it.
