Bamboo IS fast absorbing...
I avoid MF at night as it tends to cause leaks by squishing wee out as it doesn't hang onto it like bamboo and hemp do...

Fitteds and wraps are better for nights and easier to boost...

Fold an insert in half and put it at the front for starters...

I agree with the vest thing too - personally I just size up a vest size on Grace so it's not tight at all...

TBH it doesn't sound like there's enough in there... You probably need at least two EP hemp and a thick layer of bamboo at the front minimum for nights...

I've rarely been able to use a pocket nappy for night-times, although nappies by minki are pretty reliable when well stuffed! I've always used a 2-part nappy with a big enough wrap or else wool or fleece, and even though its usually a huge night-time bum, leaks are pretty rare.

Sounds to me like a good excuse to shop for something new... :D

Does Pippa have any fitted nappies that you could stuff for night time and cover with wool?

The only pocket I EVER got to work at nights was a slinki Minki with PUL and fleece and stuffed till she looked like a Weeble. Fitteds and wool all the way for nights. I've got a knitted woolen soaker that you can have FFP, it's a large, the dye had run so it was given to me FFP and I wouldn't like to sell it for profit, it's absolutely bombproof and would work over a boosted fitted I think. PM me if you want it, beauts.
