She's wet at midnight!

I knew I shouldn't use PUL cover on the fitted
I knew the fitted is not fully primed yet
I knew I should change her right after she fell asleep
I knew I shouldn't dozed off earlier than her...

Encountered dd's pyjamas was half wet from the buttock (up till tummy and down till knees area) at 3.30am early in the morning. Quickly change her with a whole new set of pyjamas and into BG pocket diaper. Pocket diaper is always standby for emergency access.

Lesson learnt (also a reminder for myself):
- Never use unfully primed fitted as night diaper if you have a heavywetter. However, it is alright for day time use.

- Avoid using PUL cover if you realized it is not fully cover the whole fitted (as fitted is more bulky especially with boaster and so on therefore has small gap that will lead to leaking)

- Use wool cover for leak-free protection as wool will absorb the wetness instead of the cotton pyjamas to absorb the wetness

- Be more caution when your child take in some amount of fluid / milk right before bedtime.

I wish I have wool longies to replace wool soaker and cotton pants...

instead of cotton pants, why not try leg warmers? Can buy (babylegs or huggalugs) or make/knit your own!

my gal will never tolerate to wear socks and probably dislike leggings too... anyway, I manage to find a few easy-to-knit leg warmers pattern online. I wonder when I will start to knit them... LOL!

Oh, I have encountered this many many times already... not sure if it's my positioning of the diaper or the diaper itself though. My boy is a heavy wetter too.

Leak? maybe you need to add more absorbency?
