No idea where to put this... Nighttime nappies for 7kg baby leaky at night

I use pampers super dry for my 12 month old dd who is pump fed 400ml overnight. Her nappy is changed when she goes to bed at 7, then at 11 then and 3. Invariably when we get up at 6.30 ish everything is SOAKED right down to the mattress.

She tends to hold it in and then do one giant pee. I use a mattress pad over the sheet (sort of incontinence one) but her bag, clothes and comforter tend to be soggy.

What's the best nappy? She's only 7kg and I have tried loads but the sheer volume seems to be too much for the nappy to handle all at once...

Any ideas?

Oh bless, my DS (3) has a not dissimilar problem! I need to take out shares in the Dry Nites sheets grin

I'm sure you've done this, but have you tried the very biggest size nappy for her weight ?

both my dds have been heavy wetters
TBH there is no "better nappy" - you just have to experiment with which brand fits best, which IME changes each time they have a growth spurt.
We use up any failed experiments during the daytime.
Currently we find Asda own brand nappies best, better than branded.

Nooooooooo! I hoped there was a SUPER nappy out there grin

Dammit. The sensation of snuggling a soggy baby first thing is lovely but... Damp.

Another vote for Asda own brand.

Right I am going to Asda. I hope it works!

I found Tescos own brand works better than the big brand nappies.

400ml is a lot of milk over night isn't it? confused It's nearly a pint! shock

My dc used the green pampers ones, usually buy a size bigger than the activ fit ones are they seem small.

I think I'd try cutting down the milk tbh as at 12mo its not as vital and then you might be able to drop a night feed?

Is pampers super dry same as baby dry?? Baby dry works best for us. Dd is such a heavy wetter the nappy hits the floor with a thud in the morning, but no leaks. Agree with trying a size up.

AbbyCat Mon 18-Feb-13 06:52:47

I think you may be using the orange super dry pampers?? Try the green baby dry ones!

I find lidl are the best for keeping DD dry all night. Hope they help!

We use pampers baby dry (green) and never have a leak.

400ml does seem a lot of milk. At 12 mo that is more milk then my two had all day. Does she eat well?

Pampers baby dry here too

We went weeks of nightly leaks then suddenly all stopped and he still kicks around everywhere so not sure why the change confused

If she's pump fed am assuming it's for medical reasons so cutting down not an option? You could always try putting an incontinence pad eg tena into the nappy to boost it or alternatively using a nappy wrap for reusables over the top to contain the leaks.

Trazzletoes Mon 18-Feb-13 07:47:49

She will be being fed that amount as monitored by a Doctor/ Dietician. It would be really foolish for the OP to reduce her pump feed without consulting someone first. Her DD has it for a medical reason (and I am certain OP doesn't need telling that).

I hope the Asda ones worked for you.

ceeveebee Mon 18-Feb-13 08:12:33

Sorry - I thought pump fed meant expressed milk - didn't realise it was for medical reasons.
Hope she is well again soon

motherofvikings Mon 18-Feb-13 08:39:10

Yes I misinterpreted pump fed too. blush

Trazzletoes Mon 18-Feb-13 08:53:39

grin no, it's like milk on a drip that goes through a tube in your nose.

Tbh I wouldn't have had a clue a few months ago either grin

So she's doing one big wee after 3am and before 6:30am. Could you move your 3am check to 4am? Or 5am?

nextphase Mon 18-Feb-13 09:09:56

Have you considered putting her in the babydry as currently, and then looking at a (much bigger) pullup or reusuable over the top?

Vexedbybook Mon 18-Feb-13 09:15:22

Try Naty ones, expensive but contain my dd's mega wees better than others. Aldi are good too.

ceeveebee Mon 18-Feb-13 10:32:49

They just called it tube fed when my dd was in SCBU.

mum23girlys Mon 18-Feb-13 10:41:05

My middle dd used to store wee for through the night and end up saturated. I used to put on her normal nappy then a bigger one over it.

Nappies also leak when they are too big, myDD went from 4+ to size 4 recently because of leaking.

mum23girlys Mon 18-Feb-13 10:44:34

Another thing we've found is if her vest is getting neat then nappies were more prone to leaks.
