About Night Nappies: What do you use at nighttime?

My Green Nappy – facebook ‘Mama Congo’ #1: Nighttime Nappies.


Cushie Tushie Couture at night 🙂 they are great.


I used to use disposables at night, but now I use an extra booster in my normal modern cloth nappies and that works perfectly 🙂


Generally a Green Kids or my Blueberry. Both can be stuffed with extra boosters and work really well


Baby BeeHinds night nappy, plus hand knitted wool soaker


Ecobubs wool pocket. Works great.


Issy bear nappies have night nappies too.


Auriel night nappy or honeyboy night nappy with hand knitted soaker or longies for winter. I’ve heard marvelous things about beetlebums wooly night nappy, just waiting to snaffle one. 😉


Pop In’s with Dri Night Pop In Booster works at treat!


Bonnibuns – bonnibuns night nappies are the cutest, most clever nappy in my stash: highly recommend them! Soooo well made.


Mostly Baby Beehinds (BBH) bamboo nappies with their covers – tho i hace a cool sandman nappy i refer to as her parachute pants which never gets fully wet


Pocket nappies are fab for night time because you can put in as many inserts as you like to make them super duper absorbent. our Green Kids will easily do 12-14 hours with room to move!


I use Baby BeeHinds Bamboo fitted 24/7. My girls are big wetters and these do the trick wonderfully with a woollen cover 😀


With #1 we always used a disposable at night, but with #2 we have always used a MCN. We use a Mother Ease bamboo fitted with 4 boosters & a Rikki cover or we have 1 beautiful Bubble Bubs night nappy which is less bulky & great for if we are going out & he is going to sleep. We found the hardest thing is getting gro-suits to fit over the massive night nappies, but we manage. He is a very heavy wetter & almost constant night feeder.

Michelle Toia:

Yes modern cloth nappies have definitely gone a long way towards dispelling the myth of only disposables at night! Some good choices there ; )


We used a Mandy Mac (hemp) stuffed with a bamboo trifold. Oh, and a PUL cover


The Sandman works terrifically, never gets all soaked.


The Sandman wins hands down!  Have tried a LOT and this was the only one that worked for my daughter. Soaked it all up, but left her skin dry, and never leaked!

    For son #2 we use Bambooty.

  2. Ah, this is topical for me. My daughter is 8 months and was wetting through her Baby Beehinds hemp nappies (used with a wool cover). So I’ve just bought a Mandy Mac night nappy – and it really works well. The only thing I worry about is the bulk of any night nappy. Does anyone else worry about the way it forces their little spines out out a natural alignment through the sheer size of the nappy? It’s probably nothing to worry about, but it does look like she’s sleeping with her little bottom raised up!!

  3. We use Sandmans here with a wool soaker – fantastic. No leaks and no need for extra boosting like I had to do with some of the other night nappies I had tried – plus Michelle is great to talk to and extremely helpful

  4. For our 18 month old daughter, we use a prefold nappy folded around a Quick-Dry Hemp Mega Soaker from Baby Harmony. As she tends to sleep on her tummy, we use a “boy fold”. A polar bummi cover finishes the whole thing off. Not the most compact nappy, but no leakages.

  5. I’ve gone for the Sandman as well which really seems the best solution for me.

  6. It took alot of trial and error but I have found that an Ecobubs Wool Pocket with two inserts or a Baby BeeHinds Night nappy works the best for me! Sometimes I’ll pop a Bummis Whisper Pant over the top of these for an extra layer of protection. My daughter is down from 7pm – 7am (sometimes later) and still has two feeds in the night so they really do hold up well.
