Hi ladies, first time posting on this topic
My DD is 5 months old and up until now we have just been using a basic bamboo fitted nappy overnight (Nature Babies Loveables) I use two slim bamboo inserts and a fleece liner, and that's what she's been sleeping in since she was 11 weeks old (when she started sleeping through and so stopped pooing at night!). I was perfectly happy with those nappies until I joined CNT
but now have discovered this whole world of specific night nappies!
I have bought a WNNN, Dreamscape and have a Bedbug on it's way (all preloved). I love the feel of the WNNN with the fleece inner (it's an old style) and the Dreamscape is just soooo pretty
but I can't say that I am noticing any difference in terms of whether one nappy is better than the other. They are all soaking wet in the morning, but none of them have leaked out of the wrap.
Should a night nappy have dry patches in the morning, or is it normal for them to be soaked through? the other night I fed DD at 2am for the first time in weeks, and her nappy was sopping wet in the morning even though it was a nighttime specific nappy. Other times even my basic bamboo fitted has dry patches in the morning.
I am happy to use whatever is best for my DD, as I'll only need about 4 or 5 night nappies they can be Dreamscapes, Bedbugs or anything else - but at the moment I just have no idea how to compare which is better!
Does anyone have any advice about what they look for in a night nappy? Is it possible to get a nappy that will remain fairly dry, and is that ultimately what I should be aiming for? It's just that all these stories and posts about people having to use sposies, or having HUUUGE cloth bums at night just don't make any sense to me - so I wonder if I'm missing something or just have a very light wetter?! As a rough guide, she can last approx 3 hours in a BG with the large insert and LL bamboo booster, or a WNSS with a BBOS insert.
