21 Month Old Wees Too Much for Nappies? (Overnight)

Not exactly potty training... but does anyone have advice for dealing with 21 month old whose nappies cant cope with overnight weeing? He is often soaked by his morning wee and this wakes him up (although, he does get a good 11/12 hours so might not sleep much more!).

We've tried him in some 6s (he was in 5+) and admittedly they were a cheaper brand, but they seem to be letting even more out (perhaps TOO big)

He does have a bottle before bed, and I suppose one answer is to cut down on fluids but he's not a big drinker during the day.

Any thoughts on adding liners? And when can we expect him to wee less overnight?

Thanks!

Have you tried pampers baby dry size 6? I find the baby dry the best.

Give tesco loves baby easy up pants in size 6 - I've tried all the brands and my son has never woke up wet with these, really good and fairly cheap

We have to use pull ups at night as he soaked through any nappies we tried. We found Aldis size fives good.

Mine is also 21 months. I change 1-2 nappies during the night. Admittedly, we co-sleep and he has up to 3 bottles - 1 before bed and 1-2 during the night. I would never cut down the fluids though, as he is also not a water drinker... But I guess it is easier for me, as I have to wake up to give him a bottle anyway, then I change the nappy...

You could try using a nappy cover (usually used for washable nappies) over the top of the disposable nappy, did this with my super-soaker baby!

We had similar probs with our (big) ds. We change him if necessary when we go to bed, and then leave him in 2 nappies (just one on top of the other). Still occasionally leaks a little around the waist but much less than before. I did also have to try different types. Currently using pampers 6s.
