How to: Night Time Cloth Diapering

Thursday, September 30th, 2010

We have a bullet proof over night diapering combo we’d like to share.  We regularly go 12 hours over night without a change and we have never had any leak issues. None.  I’d actually never given in much thought until last weekend when talking to some moms who use disposables and hearing some real horror stories.

Our nighttime solution consists of three parts; A fitted, a doubler and a soaker.

We start with a bambozzle.  Funny name , but these are great bamboo terry fitted diapers carried by Bummis.  They are really soft and extremely absorbent.
SInce Rebecca nurses at night she really soaks them.   Therefore we add a hemp booster.  We have had a few different brands but there’s little or no difference between them.  Last but not least, we cover it all with a gorgeous sbish interlock wool soaker.  Wool is fantastic since it is breathable, antibacterial and looks great.

Here’s the Bamboozle in action.

Just because you’re wearing a nighttime diaper doesn’t mean you’re actually going to go to bed.

Here’s the whole ensemble with the sbish wool cover.
