my daughter is 3.5 months and she sleeps about 11-12 hours a night,
just this last week I find more often than not that she is waking up in the morning wet.. her jammies her sheet and her back are just soaked :( I don't really want to wake her up in the night to change her bum as she has been on such a great routine since about 4 weeks old. I am so tired of changing her sheets and bathing her every morning as I normally only bath her 2-3 times a week and change her sheets weekly. someone has recommended "overnight Diapers" do they work??
also someone said to put two diapers on her lol that seems strange to me :)
any tips on keeping her dry would be greatly appreciated
thanks :)

We had the same problem when my oldest was a baby and tried the overnight diapers and was hooked! With our 6m old as soon as he started sleeping the good long 10hr stretch it was a no brainer to use them again and we have never had the problem of soaked everything with him! We keep them in the drawer with his pj's and it makes it easy not mix up or forget. I have also heard the double diaper thing and also to put a maxi pad in the regular diaper, but not tried either. Economically there isn't a pricce differance for the overnights and you only use one a night compaired to two or so of the regular so...

i don't have any idea about the over nite diapers, but what I used to do when my baby was wetting the bed through the diaper was make sure i changed her right b4 i put her in bed at nite ,and i found that useing the cloth diapers as extra "bedding" helpped me out beautifully! what i did was not put sleepy clothes on her and lay her on the cloth diapers in her bed and cover her with a blanket like normal. The xtra cloth helpped save her sheets and a quick warm cloth wipe down in the morning was easier then a full bath every morning when she wet the nite b4.
I don't know if it will work as well for you but it's worth a try...happy parenting!

I just got home from the store and they only had overnights in the huggies brand size 4-5 :( shes only size two.
For now I am going to just try 1 size up at night and see if that helps.
thanks for all your info and I think I will email them and see if they even make them in smaller sizes :)

I also have a 3month old son that sleep's thru the night what I did was get him the next size diaper and that works well with him..no more waking up soaked I would not recomend changing her diaper in the middle of the night because then she will get used to waking up at night again...well good luck
