Is this a heavy wetter?

Postby Rufies mama » Tue Mar 19, 2013 9:52 am

Hi, I'm using cloth during the day for my baby, 8 months old. For night we've been using 'Eco' disposables (and burning them on the wood burner) since she was a few weeks old.
I really want to put her back in cloth at night now (probably fitteds and wool) but only if she's not going to be sopping in the morning...
I weighed a dry disposable and her used night nappy this morning and she'd done wee of:
224 ml or 7.9 fl oz.
Is this heavy wetting?
Any ideas on an appropriate nappy? I have available; tots bots stretchies, little gumnut large, and a medium night regular wetter luscious little something's... Plus lots of little lamb boosters and some microfibre and some zorb II. I also have pockets and easy fits.
Thanks for any replies. X

I never measured Ewan's night time wee as such, but he was quite a heavy wetter. We found that standard minkis stuffed with 2 hemp and petit dessous inserts managed over night. We also used LLS with an extra hemp booster (or two) worked well for us. LLS now do a super wetter nappy and I think Little Gumnut will customise absorbency if you know how much wee they do.

Not idea of the quantities but if a disposable can last the whole night im sure a fitted plus wool can too especially if you use the boosters. Little gumnut and little luscious somethings are great but sounds like the gumnut will be too big for now if you have a size large? Depends on your lo. I'd just use the lls and boost with all you've got thats practical and go from there. It'll last the night for you and you can assess what layers need to be there x

i would say that if a eco disposable will last the night then he's not a heavy wetter. Lola needs to have a fleece wrap over a disposable when she wears them.

But I would do as the pp said, go overboard for the first few times and then slowly take off extra layers. I have to say though that I am totally impressed with weenotions night nappies again, she wakes up with a completely dry bottom every morning.

I'd go with the LG or the LLS. M isn't a particularly heavy wetter and we use LG and Wee Notions at night.

Jacob's have measured 350-450 before and a disposable just lasts overnight. When he was smaller he out weed all night nappies except heavy wetter ones. I would say 227 is more average
