My son is 14 mo. and I've tried everything I know of to prevent him from being soaked in the morning. I currently use Pampers over night diapers and a cloth insert and a cloth diaper cover and I still have a soaked baby and crib in the morning. HELP!!!

It is time to move up a diaper size and cut back the liquids during the night. He should be making it through the night with no bottles by now.

i suggest upping the size. we had this same issue. my son was 8 months old and still in size 1 diapers because he is small. we upped it to size 2, then 3 as he gained weight.maybe for overnight get one size bigger also? we tried this and it worked well (my son woke up soaking wet every morning since he was 5 months old, he slept through the night at 3 months old so i feel your pain!)

Go up a size even if it's a bit loose it will soak up more pee and should make it until morning without leaking. If it's a Huggies that is. If it's a poxy brand you should switch to Huggies hahaha.

fisher price overnights in one size up than the daytime diapers. Pampers during the night = soaked baby. Fisher price in one size up = dry dry dry :) those bad boys will hold an astronimcal amount of pee.

There for seniors but they sell them for dogs aswell. They are called Adult Bed Pads or get washable ones for dogs from walmart. and by the way does he pee alot after an kind of sleeping, like his naps. because my daughter goes more right after she sleeps naps and full night(8-12).

You should do away with the milk right before bed..give it to him maybe an hour beforehand..every time my son falls asleep while taking a bottle he's up halfway through the night with a wet diaper

Thanks ladies. I've tried so many different diapers so I don't think that will help. But maybe one more kind.... I do change him right before bed but he does drink a full cup of milk right before that so maybe I will wait a bit. I've considered changing him half way through the night but I am scared he wont go right back to sleep, so scared of that one. What are pee pads?

try to use the pampers baby dry they hold a lot of fluid and get some pee pads

i give my son half a cup of milk an hour before bed and i change him before he goes to sleep to double check he's dry. I use huggies as I had a lot of leakage problems with pampers and found them to be a better day nappy...yes even the night ones i thought were better suited for during the day. the only other option is to change him halfway through the night but keep in mind if you do this he might not go back to sleep

Try not to give him too much fluids before bed, i used huggies overnight and that worked pretty well, hardly any leakage at night. Hope you find a solution :)
