Nappies - night time vs daytime - HELP: She's stopped sleeping through already :(


Hello ladies

Well Jenny slept from 7.30pm last night until 6.30am this morning (with a couple of pop-ins to give her her dummy - but straight back to sleep before I could even think about a feed!) which is amazing but now there's a whole new issue - isn't there always?!

Her nappy was soaked through, poor thing. Normally I change her after her midnight feed but didn't want to wake her last night - maybe that's naughty of me... But I thought the nappy could handle it! I'm using Pampers active fit for 16lbs upwards - though she's more like 13lbs at the moment. They are perfectly fine during the day, no complaints.

What do you ladies use daytime and nighttime? Is there a better brand or should I try another brand good for overnight?

Thank you!

Omg I'd never wake them just to change them you aren't naughty at all! Anyways I use pampers baby dry. Its soaked through in the morning but my LO will live lol. Maybe they have nighttime diapers that I will have to look into... mine just started sleeping through the night also so I havent even had to think about this before now.

Thanks ladies. The biggest problem is that it soaks her clothes and her blanket too. I like to keep things clean but even I draw the line at laundering her blanket every day! Hmm I'll nip to the chemist later as I need to fix this by bedtime really. Any other tips?

I use pampers baby dry size 4 which is for 15 - 40lb babies. Lucas is about 16lb and they haven't leaked. I think the baby dry are marketed for night time as they have a sleeping bunny on them and say they keep baby dry for up to 12 hours.

I'd give them a go in size 4.

I had this problem too and now use a Pamper's diaper that is made for overnight. It has extra absorbency toward the front that keeps her dry. For us the problem didn't start happening until she started sleeping on her tummy and she was soaking through every night (which didn't bother her, but created a lot more laundry for me). Since starting on the overnight diapers we have not had a single leak.

Thanks for the Pampers babydry tip - it works so far.

However she's STOPPED sleeping through already! We enjoyed two nights. Now she's back to waking at 2/3am, 4/5am then 6.30ish. I thought she might be cold but she wears vest + sleepsuit + cellular blankie doubled over and I don't want to overheat her.

Any ideas why? She only had a growth spurt three weeks ago but I guess another could be beginning already...

Yes i use pampers too but i see you've solved that problem!!

How about a sleeping bag? Is she moving the covers off her and waking herself up?

I was feeding my LO when he woke at 2am and 5am untill he had a cold and was poorly at 12 weeks, we put him in our bed to keep an eye on him and when he stirred i didnt move him for a feed i wanted him to get as much sleep as poss. Well he never woke properly till 5.30am!

From that night on he went back into his cot in our room but has always slept thru sice then! 8.30pm-6/7/8am!

When he wakes you could try just waiting a few mins (4-5) and she might just drop back off?!

I don't change Bella through the night either as I don't want to wake her when she's sleeping. I have been feeling bad about it lately though...like I could cause her to get a rash or something?

If she got a rash you could easily start changing her venusrockstar, but i think most babies bums must adjust! My LO used to get nappy rash and i would change him quite often but now he sleeps 12 hrs and has a lovely botty!! x
