Hi!! New Mama here....need help with cloth diapering

[deleted account] ( 3 moms have responded )

Hi, Im new to the circle of moms! Question for cloth diapering mamas....I currently use CD's during the day but disposables at night, and I'd like to start cd'ing at night, but I am not sure if I should go with wool or fleece. Any suggestions??? I have a super soaker. Her overnight disposable is usually filled to the max in the morning, so I need a heavy duty solution!!!

Im currently loving my swaddlebees econappis, hemp babies bigger weeds in bummis covers, and bububebe's fitteds in my covers for the day. But I'm thinking none will withstand nighttime. I think the hemp babies might but they are very bulky unless used alone.

HELP!!! :)

My only experience with cloth diapers is when my brother was little (over 19 years ago). I had to change him a lot. i remember that we used to fold up another cloth diaper and put it in the middle of the first one (he peed a lot too). I am not sure if diapers are the same today as they were back then, but the folded one seemed to help.

Actually I started cd'ing with them!! I had lots of leaks and just didn't get a good fit. I do wish I had liked them instead of trying a million other things! lol

Hi, I'm new too! And I also have a heavy wetter... especially overnight! I use G Diapers for her - all the time now really. If you aren't familiar with them, they are a cross between disposables and cloth. They have a plastic liner that snaps into a cloth cover. And there are disposable inserts that line the plastic liner. The inserts are flushable and biodegradeable. I have not had a leak yet even though she used to burst the disposables almost every night. I'm having to get used to not washing sheets daily. :)

If you just want to try them, they have a starter pack that has two covers, 4 plastic liners, and 10 inserts. You can get them at the website, or try a natural food store near you.

Oh, and another plus, I think the g diapers are just adorable on. If you like them, they do sell a small variety of colors to add to your collection.
