soaking thru nappies at night - UTI?

My dd (2) has now woken up at 7ish am for the last 3 days in a row - absolutely sodden. Soaked through nappy, est, jamies and gro bag and onto cot-bed sheet.
We thought at first it might be a dodgy batch of pampers so opened a different pack last night but same problem this morning.
Her wee is not smelly, we don't think she's drinking any more than usual and can't really figure this out. My sister suggested it might be a UTI.
Does anyone have any experience of this sort of thing or any advice? Or can anyone recommend SUPER absorbent nappies for night time???
BTW, she's not at all distressed by this (she's not doing the washing......!)

if her wee is not smelly i would imagine its not a uti. is it sore when she wees, can she tell you?

maybe stop giving her drinks earlier in the day before bed. maybe sit her on the potty before bed?

it wont stop her clothes getting wet but i would get a mattress protector, like the disposable ones, to save the bed.

sorry, maybe not much help. my dd1 is 2 as well

could just be she is having a huge wee early in mor4ning and over filling the nappy all at once?

she may have outgrown her nappies, have you tried the next size up?

please can I bump this for a friend who has the same age child - but the problem has exisited for months - they have tried no juice/liquid after 5pm - still it continues - nappy is the correct size - have also tried different brands

I had this with both of mine - just went to the next nappy size up (not the one which would be the correct size, but the next one up). Alternatively, you could try a different brand.

Cheers, Guys.
Will try the Pampers Active Fit size 5 (as opposed to the 4+ we're using at the mo) and will also try the Night time nappies suggested by Happy mum of 2.
