I've tried various cloth nappies and so far I've found that they all leak!
I want to be able to put my baby to bed at 6pm approx and then not have to change him again until about 5am. He's in Pampers baby dry at night at the moment and I'm in the habit of changing him when I go to bed between 10pm - 12am. The problem is is that even though I change him in almost total darkness (I use the light from my baby monitor screen at the crutial moments and do the rest by feel) he wakes up, grabs hold of his feet and starts whooping and giggling as though its party time, then getting him back to sleep is a real mission.
The nappies we've tried so far are:
Tots bots Easyfit V2/3(?) BTP
Flexi tots (but with a Disana wool wrap not a plastic one)
Magic-alls fitted minkees
Disana tie on
I've spent a small fortune on washables so far and haven't found any of them to be much cop. My Tots bots easyfits are supposedly BTP but are already too small for my (oversized) 5 month old baby.
Can any of you recommend a cloth nappy that will go the night?
I use the bumgenius at night.... I also use it during the day! For my son it has been fantastic, doesnt leak, explode, or cause any issues. I purchased more for when this LO is born and I will have 2 in diapers because I have loved the quality and ease of them! they fit from about 10 pounds to ... well my 2 year old is almost 30 pounds and they still fit, you have snaps that adjust really well.
I would go for a proper night nappy to make sure they'll hold up as LO gets older. Wee Notions Night Notions are our favourites with a PUL wrap (either WN or Econobum) over the top, or fleece trousers with an extra bamboo booster in the nappy. Ella's House Bumhuggers stuffed with a prefold also worked for us. We wouldn't stand a chance with the day nappies you mentioned.
I have used Disana tie-ons in an emergency but never on their own... I assume you stuffed it when you tried it? Otherwise, they're only really suitable for newborns without extra boosting. I used one with a prefold, a slim bamboo booster and a microfibre insert and it worked well with Disana wool pants over the top.
For night times we use TV V2's. Tegan doesn't need so much absorbancy because she's catheterised before bed. Our V2's last her about 14 hours. They fit her really well (she weighs 22lb at 29 months old)
We've just discovered Totsbots stretchies. They're the new version of the original Bamboozle nappy and they're fab! Bamboozles are also great night nappies, so long as they're boosted well, as are Ella's House bumhuggers
Much as I love my Easyfit v2, they wouldnt stand a chance overnight, even when boosted. It's often best to use a specific night nappy as they get older rather than one you'd use in the day.
Also, boosters really help. We use a Little Lamb bamboo booster and also a microfibre cloth folded up and placed into Evie's wetzone, then a pair of wool or fleece longies over the top, and it works really well for us.
