My LO is 18mos. I thought for the past couple of days, she'd all of a sudden started peeing more. She's just not peeing as frequently, so when she does, it's huge amounts of it.
We use pocket diapers with microfiber inserts- never less than 3 layers. I just stripped everything and it's absorbing beautifully. She soaked thru in a 30 min. nap yesterday (she was on her stomach and the back of the diaper was dry) clothes, bedding and all. She leaks on her stomach, side and back.
Until now, overnights were a 3 layer insert + a 2 layer doubler. I added another 3 layers but it's not the amount of absorbancy. Most nights/days she goes a little at a time, and can throughly soak an insert and not leak. Most nights she can wear those 5 layers for 12 hrs.
The other day, I was nursing her and she peed and it ran out allover us both and had to change clothes!
This early AM, (we co-sleep) she was nursing, I was hit with a sudden wave. I had to change the sheets, mattress pad, her clothes, mine- even my socks- there was so much that when I stood up it dripped down my leg! I put her on the potty and she peed more. Her diaper (& 8 layers) were only wet on the side that she'd been laying on, and before that she'd been allover the place, so if she'd peed before, it would've hit somewhere else too.
I've thought of fleece or wool shorties, but am not convinced that would help and also she's very heat sensitive. Do you have any ideas to control these sudden gushers? I can take her to the potty more often during the day, but what about at night and on the go?????
