Cloth Nappies Leaking at Night

nappy pail

We’re seven nights (and eight days) into the 24/7 switch.

The first two nights?

Brilliant.

No leaks, happy baby, happy mum.

The last FIVE nights?

Leaks.

Every morning.

All over DS2’s pyjamas and all over the sleeping bag.

And this morning – oh my.

Poor DS2 had pooed at some point in the night and because cloth nappies don’t wick the urine away as well as disposables do he had a completely red bum this morning from nappy rash.

Red raw and sore all over.

I felt awful.

I’ve ordered (at great expense) MORE bamboo boosters and a couple of little lamb bamboo nappies (on offer) to try overnight.

DH wants to switch back to disposables for overnight, but (as with so many things in life) I really feel that it has to be all or nothing.

However, I’ve pretty much tried all my combinations of booster and nappy and it isn’t working.

I’m going to try 3 boosters tonight, if I can get the nappy and wrap over them.

Maybe I need a bigger wrap??

It means I have less boosters available for daytime use, so more frequent changing, but only until the new stuff arrives.

Failing that I’m going to have to do a nightly nappy change at 4am or something ridiculous!
