Peeing through Pjs during night.

Any suggestions as to what I might do to reduce wetting the bed/toddler through the night. We have tried all diapers - no one diaper has really made a difference, and have tried different sizes. Have also reduced the amount of liquid/milk he has before bed and make sure its at least an hour before bedtime. We are still constantly finding him wet in the morning or through the night.

You have probably tried this already but Huggies Overnight diapers worked for my son who wet through everything else. I just buy them a size bigger than what he normally wears and make sure he has a fresh one on right before I put him down

For my son we use two diapers, one over the other and that seems to help

Not to be discouraging, but our diapers all leaked at night, too, even with plastic diaper covers over them. We usually used cloth, but even the thickest night-time cloth ones leaked, so we tried disposables, but mostly they leaked, too. The best luck was with a fresh disposable (put on just before getting in bed) covered by a Dappis plastic diaper cover. Once in a while this would still leak, so we also got a really nice plastic mattress cover at Target (for his Queen size bed, even) that doesn't make the "crinkly sounds". Probably once or twice a week it was all wet and needed to wash everything. Fortunately when our son potty trained, he started staying dry through the night within a couple months, so maybe that is your next best hope! Now he can just wear undies and FINALLY is dry. Good luck!

Try this.
When you put on the diaper/pull up, make sure his pee pee shooter is pointing downward or at least not up.. If he is getting wet all up around his tummy and whatnot, it likely due to the direction in which is little thing is pointing. I've had this problem with both of my sons and it just took a little adjusting when I would but them down at bed time to fix the problem. Good Luck! :)

have you tried changing them in the middle of the night, if you put them down at say 8pm, before you go to bed around 10ish or so, change them, carefully, lol, that may help, otherwise the person before me had a good suggestion with cutting a diaper and placing another over it for the extra absorption i've had to do that for a road trip,just in case, so they wouldn't leak through on thier carseats. good luck.

My daughter has done this since she was born.. She will be a year old on March 30th.. I have done every thing, they checked her kidney's and bladder found nothing.. All they could tell me to cut one diaper an then place another one over that or to place the plastic covers that they use to cover cloth diapers/ potty training.. My daughter was born at 36 weeks with Gastroschisis (insides outside belly) this is why they wanted to test her..But you can always ask your doctor if there is some thing going on or some thing to help.. Take care and best wishes..
