I normally use cloth nappies but want to use some disposables on holiday. Can anyone recommend any good leakproof ones for night-time?
When I do use disposables, I get Sainsbury's own brand. They almost always leak at night, and even during a 2 hour nap.
I wouldn't have said that DS was a particularly heavy wetter, although he does bf at least once a night. He's 18 months and 98th centile for weight / height, with very chubby legs and a pot belly (the nappy usually sits underneath the overhang. ) He sleeps on his stomach.
Quite a few people I've asked IRL have recommended Pampers. What's the issue with how they're made?
Other people have said Sainsbury's eco nappies, Huggies and Tesco, but I think it partly depends on how well a particular brand fits your LO's shape.
A couple of people suggested that I might have been using too small a size. I'm trying a Tesco nappy tonight in a bigger size. If it's going to leak, I want to find out at home rather than when I'm on a campsite without laundry facilities!
I use cloth, but I always put DS in a disposable at night. Every nappy I tried leaked at first, but then I came to the conclusion I was just shit at putting them on. Well, they're a lot harder than cloth ones! I'm a lot better at it now and he hasn't leaked for ages (*tempting fate emoticon*). Anyway, FWIW I use either Aldi or Lidl's own brand- they're cheap and fab.
any chance you can get friends to give you one of whatever they use to try? often when dd1 (now aged 4, 91st centile ,and still a heavy night wetter) has a growth spurt, and her shape changes, i have to change the brand of her nappy to get a better fit. We're currently on huggies - before that it was pampers, and tesco before that.
I tried Tesco, Sainsbury's and Pampers which all leaked 100% of the time. In the end we used Huggies which only leaked 50% of the time. .
Sometimes the problem is just too much wee. Other times it leaks for some other reason. I'm sure user error could be a factor - although they've leaked without being completely saturated when DH has put them on too, so it's not just me.
We're away for another week later in the summer and will be doing disposable in the day but cloth at night. I'm not risking another holiday of having to hand-wash bedding every other day!
A rookie error we made with disposable nappies is forgetting to run your finger around the leg holes to make sure the edging is not caught folded back under the elastic. DH forgets to do this and they do then leak. Are you also using the right size nappy?
We love Tesco nappies and also use Morrisons too (when we're away or I'm too backed up with washing to use washables).
