Don't feel guilty - I ended up using pull-ups at night with Ben & still am because his cloth was getting too bulky & altho' they are a bit pricey, he's nowhere near ready to be dry at night & pull-ups are easy. They also don't stay very dry - they certainly feel wet when he gets up, so she'll still be aware that she has wee'd

I was using disposables at night with dd as she'd outgrown her nappies but was still seldom dry at night but I hated them. After a few months I realised that night time dryness was a long way off so I've bought a couple of Minki yo-yos. I got XL which are for age 3-7! They're enormous on but she loves them. One is zebra patterned so she calls it her "giant zebra bum"! They're pockets but don't come with any inserts which makes them a bit cheaper and you can stuff them to fit your needs. As I'm washing nappies regularly for the little one anyway I've only got 2, the nappies dry quick and I use whatever inserts are handy so this has been enough. They have poppers at the side so can go on and off like a regular nappy but they're stretchy enough to pull up and down like pants too.

Don't know if they would suit you but I've found them useful although the L may have been big enough :D

My dd decided when she turned 2 not to wear nappies any more, and that was it, but she wasn't night dry for a few months.

But once she was in pants during the day, she kicked up an almighty fuss at bedtime if we tried putting her (still ok fitting) night nappies on.

I reluctantly bought sposie pull ups while I looked into options and costs for cloth alternatives. Ultimately I wasn't keen to part with the huge amount we'd have needed to for cloth, so stuck to the sposies.

Within 6 months she was dry at night, so from our experience they certainly don't delay night dryness or cause confusion. They helpfully filled a gap and did what they were supposed to (no leaks or bursts). We always called them 'nappy pants' so she kind of had it reinforced that they were both nappy and pants.

We have that same issue. My just-3 year old is still wet at night 75% of the time. I have an excess of huge nappies - I'd be happy to do a swap/sale. Little Lamb, used a handful of times, size 3, and fit my 110cm, 3st tot.

Christopher was 4 at the beginning of August and whilst he has been reliably dry in the day since 2 years and 10 months he never wakes for a wee in the night. He will be dry 5 nights or so out of 7 and I can't be doing with all the washing of letting him wear pants for bed as even if he wets the bed he still doesn't wake until 7am!

He is small and slim - only weighs 1st 12lbs at age 4, and if he does wet at night it isn't a lot so he wears an easyfit for bed with an EP hemp booster in it. This means that if he does need a wee in the night (which he wakes for less than once a month) he can take the nappy off himself and he takes it off in the morning himself to do a wee when he wakes. Would a pocket nappy be absorbent enough for your LO?

If I thought there was any chance of her being dry overnight in the next month or so then I would be tempted to go with the pull ups, otherwise I would prob order a few bigger night nappies and let her choose the colour/print etc., If she is only weeing a little bit at night, then a really pretty XL pocket might do and they can always be sold on.

A pocket probably would be absorbant enough, she's only doing one or two wees in it, but the only pockets we have are large Blueberries as I sold all her other nappies when she day trained. She likes to get dressed/undressed herself so it is really something which she can pull on/off that I want, just wish there was a WAHM making pretty cloth pull-ups in this country.

Why not contact some of them and ask if it's something they would try? I'm sure they would be popular.
