Well i've given it a month but we're just not winning with the pop-ins as a night time nappy The nappy isn't put on until midnight and by 4am he is absolutely soaked through, i've even ended up putting a wrap over them to try and make them last through the night.
The problem is that Aiden normally wants his feed around 4am and is half asleep at this point, if I try and change him he ends up screaming the roof down. He likes laying on his side in bed with me when having this feed, so if I don't change him, I end up with a big wet patch on the bed
Currently I have them set on the second smallest setting, with the booster only attached at the back and the smaller booster folded in half. I then have a fleece liner wrapped around the boosters to keep them in place and then a wrap over the nappy.
How long has anyone else managed with a pop in at night and did you do anything different?
Any suggestions on a night time nappy that will last all night would be great.
Do you not use the night booster? Without it, they're only really a day nappy. I know your LO is fairly young but it's at around that age that lots of babies start needing a proper night nappy. If you try the night booster, the nappy will seem absolutely huge and you may have to unsnap the rise fully, but it should work for a good couple of months yet. Alternatively, you could try adding other boosters instead but if the normal inserts are only lasting 4 hours, I'd say you need something heavy duty like the night booster really.
I use pop ins with the night boosters and 95% nights it is just fine. It goes on at 7.30pm and comes off at anything from 8.30am-11am (we have had some terrible nights ) I don't use it quite as instructed as I found it too fiddly to construct, I snap in the large booster and then lay the night booster on top, add fleece and it works. The only trouble i have is with the latest dreami dri version, for some reason that one just doesn't work for us as well.
Thanks guys. I put the nappy on him at 11pm and this time I added the night time booster - I see what you mean Rachel_C, it is massive on him ( at least I know he won't be able to move in his cot!!) I have managed to popper the size down by one, but I think there may have been a little bit of leg gape but Aiden was wriggling about so much I couldn't tell for sure. I have put the wrap on him still so I will wait and see what I have in the morning
ood luck! Popins were our staple nighttime nappy for a long time until about 14 months old when he started weeing alot at night and I still swear by those nightboosters and sometimes use them in my Issy bears for nighttime along with a folded issy bear booster
Hi guys, I thought I would give you an update as to how last night went with the nappy. Well...we lasted until 6am the nappy was still wet on the outside, but as he had a wrap on the bed stayed nice and dry
