Baby Beehinds Night Nappy

A must-have for your heavy wetter.

I started using cloth nappies with my son when he was a few months old but was scared to try cloth nappies overnight. He's a heavy wetter and I had no idea how a cloth nappy would be able to keep him dry.

As he approached his first birthday he started consistently leaking through his disposable nappy overnight. And even though he always woke up in the night, I hated having to change his nappy at 2am. I even tried using extra bamboo inserts in our normal cloth nappies but he would still wake up soaked through.

Changing a nappy in the middle of the night is bad enough, but it's even worse having to also change a full set of clothes and the sheets!

Nothing was working so I set out to find the perfect cloth nappy designed to be used overnight.

In cloth nappy groups on Facebook the Baby BeeHinds Night Nappies came up over and over again. Mums with heavy wetters recommended them and they had a huge sale so I bit the bullet and put my order in.

We started using the night nappies in June last year and I am hooked. We've not had a single leak the whole time we've been using them.

To go from leaks every single night, to none at all! So good. I only wish I started using them sooner.

The nappies are fitted so you need to pick the right size which could get expensive if you buy a set in small, medium and then large. I purchased 4 of the large size and these should see us through from when he was 13 months old to whenever he toilet trains - so for me it's worked out to be great value for money.

The nappies have two rows of side snaps so are adjustable at the thighs and the waist. They are super absorbent and you can adjust the absorbency to best suit your child (whether they are a boy, a girl, a tummy sleeper or a back sleeper).

There are a couple of things to note about these night nappies. Firstly, you'll need to purchase separate covers as the whole nappy is absorbent. You can either get PUL covers or wool covers. I chose the wool covers as they're the best option for heavy wetters. I have 2 of the Baby BeeHinds wool covers that I lanolise every fortnight, but would have probably purchased a third if I was doing it all over again.

Depending on how you fold the nappy you can have up to 23 layers of absorbency. This is great for keeping your baby dry but does mean the nappy can be bulky and take a while to dry. I think most night nappies, especially those designed for heavy wetters, are bulky and this has never been a problem for us. And because they take so long to dry it is recommended that you own at least 4 different nappies. Four has been a great number for us, and if I'm ever in a pinch with having no dry, clean nappies then I can just quickly throw the whole nappy in the dryer.

If you've been too scared to take the plunge into overnight nappies, you need to give Baby BeeHinds Night Nappies a try.

My Verdict: I love, love, love them! I actually find the night nappies so much easier than using disposables, and you can't argue with the no leaks in over a year either.
