For those of you that know me, you know how much I LOVE cloth diapers. Honestly, I can`t say enough good things about cloth diapers! And trust me, you will see MANY more blogs related to cloth, but I wanted to start off with a subject that I found the most daunting- the overnight cloth diaper solution.
It took a lot of experimentation to find what I consider to be better than a disposable (if you think disposables are the best for overnight, you are just plain wrong. read on...) By recommendation of Catherine from Bouncing Babies cloth diapers (excellent customer service BTW) I bought a Goodmama fitted diaper (with organic bamboo velour, seriously comfy for your baby`s bum!) with a
Dancing-bears fleece diaper cover (they run big, a small will last you from newborn to potty training). I was really scared to use the fleece cover, I just couldn`t wrap my head around how something that isn`t waterproof (in the traditional sense of the word) would contain all of that overnight pee! But, I gave it a go because the Goodmama diaper came highly recommended and so did the fleece cover. To my astonishment, after a blissful 12 hour sleep, my sweet little boy woke up with NO LEAKS! I gave it two weeks before I started raving to anyone and everyone I know!
Its been three months since I started using this overnight cloth solution and my baby still hasnt woken up with a leak. I should note that I have put him in a disposable the odd night when I did not get my cloth washed in time, and he woke up with a leak everytime.... Hmmmm.
Anyway, the goodmama diaper is pricey ($31) but well worth it in my opinion since it is one size and just ridiculously absorbant. Bouncing babies cloth diaper currently has the Goodmama fitteds in stock as well as the new Goodmama one, of which I will be doing a review in the next couple of weeks! The dancingbears fleece cover retails at $20 but I have not been able to find any canadian retailers so I ordered from http://www.happybabycompany.com/ (which I highly recommend as well if you want to buy one of these fantastic fleece covers).
If anyone else has found a great overnight solution please feel free to share in the comments! Or if you have any questions please go ahead and ask!! :) Thanks for reading!
