Pockets as night nappies

Postby snapdragon » Tue Aug 25, 2009 9:31 pm

Does anyone use a pocket or AIO nappy as a night nappy? During the day we are total Itti addicts here with a few pocket nappies thrown in for good measure (BBSS and WNSS so far). I know the nest option for nights is a separate wrap but I am wondering if anyone has had any success with pocket nappies overnight?

I am considering the Real Easy nappy from Hip Baby as an overnight as it is an AIO with a flip out hemp booster but it also has a big pocket for stuffing? Has anyone got any experience?

Also, what is the best thing to stuff pockets with for max absorbency but trimmest fit? Maybe inserts that are not too wide between the legs?

Can you tell I am fairly new to the whole pocket nappy lark :wink: :giggle:

The only pocket we use is a standard minki from nappies by minki.we stuff it with a petit dessous bamboo insert and 2 easy peasy hemp ones and no leaks yet!

I dont use pockets at night. I use a terry, boosted with a Mothercare smart nappy inner, with a fleece liner on the top, with a home made fleece soaker on the top :) Makes her really bulky, but nothings escaped to far (touch wood! :cnthug: ) But then, I only own two pocket nappies anyway :oops:

Thanks for the replies. I have tried a Slinky Minky on a nappy trial scheme and even that seemed really bulky (my DD is a real skinny minnie). I have heard good things about standard minkies over night but am just worries they are going to be uncomfortably bulky for her?

My DD is a chunky monkey and I basically have two nappies on her at night (the mothercare inner that I use it a nappy on it's own) and she's not uncomfortable. In fact, I think she sleeps a bit better in that than the sposies...

I used to use fuzzies at night when Gracie was smaller and never had any problems, I didn't find slinki minki's all that bulky either tbh. How old is you lo? xx
