Night nappy changes at 5 months - is this normal?

I use huggies and had to do this but it was just volume of fluid not the nappy. I used to change him at every feed in the night. At 8 1/2 months he seems to have calmed down, probably to do with solids.

I find lidl nappies are great but found boots leaked poo. At least lidl are cheap to try!

I tried the Happy Nappy size 4 - same problem. I've bought Pampers Baby Dry size 4 to try tonight. The quest for sleep continues.. shock Thanks!

Have you tried a different brand? Huggies leaked on my DS. I changed and went up two sizes, that worked.
Could you buy a little lamb trial pack, they are very good and never leaked.
I used a nappy wrap over a disposable as well, but luckily the change in size worked for us.

I found huggies leaked really badly for my DD at night. I now use boots own brand which have been much better.

DS is almost 5 months old and I find his nappy is absolutely saturated with wee by 2am (when I feed him), and again at 8am (when he gets up). I end up doing a 2am nappy change every night which wakes him up a lot.
DS's sleep is really unsettled (?4 month regression) and he feeds a LOT overnight - at least 2 hourly - so I guess it's unsurprising that he produces loads of wee.
I'm using size 3 nappies (whatever is on offer; doesn't seem to make a big difference, but mainly Huggies); I tried size 4 and still had to change him. If I don't change him the nappy is so full that it leaks.
I just want to try and keep nights as settled as possible and the nappy change says "wake up" to him! Should I still be regularly changing at night or is my technique/nappy all wrong?!
