High and dry

Early in February I blogged about my trip to Abby's Lane, where I had hoped to find something, anything, to keep Sammy dry through the night.  And now I can happily say that I've found my cloth-diapering solution!  Here's how it breaks down: I start with a large Gen-Y cover and insert a Joey Bunz hemp insert.  I then fold a Boori bamboo prefold and place it on top of the hemp insert.  Last but not least, I top the whole thing off with a GroVia BioLiner.  What exactly is a BioLiner?  Well, they say a picture is worth a thousand words, so let me show you by using my incredibly awesome Mr. Poop bank (what, you don't have one?):

In other words, it keeps solids contained for easy clean-up; all you have to do is just remove the liner (and whatever horrible stuff that happens to be attached to it) and flush it down the toilet.  And believe me, anything that makes dealing with Sammy's awful diapers (oh, the joys of introducing solid foods) is a major win in my book.  Here's Sammy modeling the whole kit and caboodle:

The only downside to using this cloth-diapering combination is that it gives Sammy some major junk in his trunk.  I've actually had trouble getting him into his footie pajamas at night because of how big his bum is, so I've started putting him in two-piece pjs and that seems to be working out pretty well.  There have been a few instances of leaking, especially at the beginning when the hemp inserts were still getting primed, but generally speaking this system keeps Sammy dry and comfortable for an average of twelve hours a night.  Be sure to give this combo a try if you're looking for a nighttime cloth-diapering solution.

I love his cloth diaper booty!! :)

I'll have to try that system out...right now, we use a BumGenius stuffed with two inserts. It works, but there have been a few times where Addison has woken up with a wet belly. :(

I am going to try that as well! My little girl is a heavy wetter, so is my son. Thanks!

Way to go mama - I never did find a cloth solution that worked for nighttime - I ended up using my wool longies over a disposable to keep the big boy dry at night... :)
