So we officially have a new nighttime diaper solution. Our now two year old son is just shy of 32 lbs, so I worry that he’ll be outgrowing his diapers before he can finish potty training. That being said, we have found a night time solution that works for us, and it should continue to fit him for a while.
Thristies Size large fitted diapers, bought on clearance when they were being discontinued in favor of the Duo Fitted diapers. Because we only used them for a short time with my daughter they still have that wonderful plush velour softness that Thirsties diapers are known for, before you kill them with months of caustic toddler urine. I stack a size large Joey Bunz Premium Hemp insert under a Flip Stay dry insert and top the whole thing with a Size Large Thirsties cover. The Duo Size 2 are just too small to keep us leak free. It is a little bulky, but no worse than the triple stuffed pocket diaper we used to use at night. We also use an Under the Nile Fitted and a Sustainable Babyish fitted with no closure that we use when the Thirsties are being washed and those work as well. Though I really hate the enclosed inserts that come with the sustainable babyish and I just use my new etsy inserts or a Joey Bunz Premium size large with a Flip Stay dry insert.
Just bought a new Sustainable babyish fitted with snaps. We haven’t used it much yet, so I can’t really properly review it. It’s sized and we bought an XL. The first night using it didn’t go well, but it also might not be properly prepped, so I’m willing to give it time.
As long as I rinse in the morning and spray with Bac out, we don’t have major stink problems, though I usually plan to strip them every month or two. I’m loving the Thirsties covers again because they are the only thing that holds in my son’s morning messy poops that he often produces before I get him out of his crib in the morning. The fully saturated bumGenius pockets just weren’t cutting it.
My new favorite insert is a zorb, hemp insert I bought from Etsy. This one insert does the job of a Joey Bunz Premium hemp and a Flip stay dry and it’s more compact. I haven’t had it long enough to tell how well it will hold up to the serious beating that nighttime diapers take, but so far I’m very pleased.
So I know we’ll be have additional diapering challenges with the coming months, as our son gets even bigger, but for now at least we have some dry mornings to look forward too.
