First overnight in cloth diapers

Cloth diapering has been going well. We are still trying to burn through the last of our disposables but the the last box is full of pampers baby dry. I have never used these before and they started leaking and man they smell funky so I got brave and decided it was time to try a cloth diaper overnight. I selected the rumparoo for this application because I already had two inserts for it. I loaded them both into the diaper stuck the whole package on Nicholas and proceeded with out bedtime ritual. Nicholas sleeps on his tummy now so he didn't mind the extra fluffiness which was a good thing because with both the inserts he had a pretty bulky butt. :) He is SO cute in cloth, just have to put that out there because it's just crossed my mind. How I was every against cloth diapers I can't imagine. Back to the point though Nicholas went to bed and slept for 12 hours straight. When he got up in the morning I halfway expected a leak. It was after all dun dun duunnnnn a cloth diaper surely it leaked right? NOPE! He was pretty dry and everything was very well contained. I saw everything because he had a massive poo which is what woke him up lol. This was the first time he's had a big poo in cloth diaper so it was an experience getting it taken care of. No major deal though, we can do this! All in all I was very impressed with the whole overnight in the cloth and think it will be pretty easy to transition to doing cloth every night as soon as we are out of disposables. I can't wait !!


  1. now that gavin is sleeping longer i had to play with nighttime inserts (he is heavy wetter) i found these and i am in LOVE LOVE LOVE. Mother Ease stay dry liner
    totally affordable (about 3 dollars each liner and free shipping from their site)

    i hate him having to sleep with a HUGE 3 insert diaper but now with the stay dry i got it going on now. :)

  2. Thanks :) I'll have to check those out. With the rumparoo I just put the regular insert in with the newborn thingy snapped to it. Honestly it's the bulkiest diaper I have anyway. I had been using it with just the newborn insert to trim it down a bit and even though he's 7mo old now the newborn handles him just fine so long as I watch the clock and change him when it's time.

  3. Kawaii goodnight heavy wetters are great for overnight. Though all my kawaiis hold up for a long time without leaks. Glad to hear cding is going well for you!

  4. Kawaii are probably next on the list just b/c of the price. I don't think I'll get he overnight ones b/c I don't think I really have a heavy wetter. Then again maybe he will be when he's older and will need more leak protection. Maybe it's b/c he is so small that I don't need extra inserts?
