We use LLS sw, they are fab, and usually just a bit damp on the outside in the morning. They are great, but they are expensive. :( We're still going to get a few more if we can!

Have you tried HL bedbug(+)? Or maybe some zorboost boosters? I know Ems does them, not sure how much they are but they are supposed to be very good at night...

Hope you find something that works, and whatever you do, don't limit her liquid in the evening/at night, it's not the answer.

just out of interest why do you say don't limit bedtime drinks?

tried HL and already boost with zorb would loev a LLS SW but don't know whether to spend all that money on something that may not work GAH!

My DD is a massive wetter and went through a phase at about 18mo of out wetting anything and everything for about 2 months. I think like PP said, they start to learn bladder control and just release it in one massive go. I ended up using a (women's) pad as well, or if they are available in the UK, Eenees do a compostable booster, so we would have a heavy wetter night nap on, PLUS a pad/eenees insert on the outside, with woolies over the top.

FWIW, it did only last for about 2 months, but nearly drove me insane at the time.

I'd hands down recommend the LLS SW - if it doesn't work, I can guartentee to take it off your hands :wink:!

In my experience, reducing evening drinks, especially milk, can be difficult for both mum and child, it will disrupt her sleep, she may not sleep as long or as well, and it may not make a hge difference at this age, because they do tend to hold on to liquid for longer and release it all at night. It's often not the amount of wee that nappies can't deal with, but the fact that it's all released at once (so trying different combos of fabrics that absorb quickly and then some that absorb more over time may help) and as pp said, boosting outside the nappy is a good idea...

Oh, bless!

Don't feel bad if you do need to use disposables at night for a while, you and Izzy have saved so many nappies from landfill, and you need to make sure that Izzy is happy and comfy at night. Cloth isn't suitable for every situation, and there's no point clinging rigidly to something if it stops working for you.

This heavy wetting phase may only last a while anyway. xxx
