Team Cloth


I hosted my first Cloth 101 session for Abby's Lane this past Saturday; it was a pretty low-key event with five people in attendance (not including toddlers and babies), but I think it went rather well.  Everyone seemed to enjoy getting their hands on the various different kinds of diapers and inserts that I had available--I definitely wish I had been able to attend something similar back when I was first looking into going the cloth route!


One of the hot topics during the session was night-time diapering and the different systems out there to keep your baby dry throughout the night, which gave me the perfect opportunity to show off the new diapers that Sammy's been wearing at night (he just recently outgrew his adorable Gen-Y covers from a few months back).  I purchased this set-up about a week ago and I am totally in love with it--no more leaks and Sammy's back to sleeping until 8 am or later because of the increased absorbency.


Here's how it all breaks down: the first layer is a Knickernappies fleece stay-dry liner, which does exactly what it says (how novel!).  The second layer is a Sustainable Babyish organic cotton fitted with a heavy-duty three-layer snap-in soaker.  This is then followed by the third layer composed of a Joey Bunz hemp insert placed on top of the fitted.  Last but certainly not least is a Bummis Super Brite cover to keep everything nice and leak-proof.  The best part about this new system?   Sammy shouldn't size out of this for quite some time; he's currently wearing a large fitted and cover on their smallest settings; and when he does outgrow them, these brands all come in an extra-large size so Sammy should be covered in that department until he's potty-trained, thank goodness.  Seriously--if you have a heavy night-wetter (and/or a giant baby), you should give this combination a try.

Since your last post about finding the perfect overnight combination, I started searching high and low for something that would work. I stumbled upon some Blueberry pocket diapers that have a soaker already sewed in, which work wonders when paired with a hemp/cotton soaker and another cotton insert in the pocket. Thanks for inspiring me to keep looking for the perfect nighttime combination!

Oh I wish I had read this two years ago - I always had to use disposables at night - with a wool soaker over the disposable, my oldest was such a heavy wetter... way to go mama!
