S has recently taken to sleeping on her side at night. It's cute, but it has also introduced a pesky problem - diaper leakage! Boooo.
Up until this point, we have been using mainly Kawaii snazzy minky OS pockets stuffed with a single microfibre insert as her night time dipe, and this worked well when she slept on her back. She's not a super-heavy wetter so the single insert generally contains everything just fine for 8-10 hours. Now that she's sleeping on her side, however, some of the pee simply runs out the leg hole rather than absorbing into the insert. Now, one thing we've noticed with the Kawaiis is that the leg openings tend to be somewhat loose on her. This is more pronounced on some of the diapers than others (odd, huh?) which has led us to only use the 5 tightest ones unless we're in a real pinch. However, it appears that even these cannot reliably prevent leakage when she's on her side.
At 5 AM this morning, she'd leaked yet again but unfortunately I was a bit late on the laundry this round and the tight-legged Kawaiis were still in the dryer, unstuffed. So I reached for one of our two AMP one-size duo pockets, which have unfortunately been sitting unused because they have leaked as well, but in this case out over her waist. I checked and double-checked the fit, and it appeared that it was fastened as intended. But nope - another leak out over the waist, a mere 2 hours later! (I'm currently emailing with a CSR at AMP who is helping me troubleshoot the problem as it's perplexing indeed!)
So now I'm wondering a couple things:
1) Am I missing something key with the AMPs? Here are a couple pics of her wearing one early this morning. Does something look totally wrong? I really want these to work as they're so cute & trim!
(Hmm - it appears from the first picture that the left leg gusset is a bit wonky, but she must have done that in her sleep as it was pulled around nicely like the right one when I put it on. Plus, the issue with these isn't in the leg hole - it's the waist area! Does this part look odd to you?)
2) What are the best overnight diapers for side-sleeping babies? I found a couple forum threads on this which suggested fitteds and extra-stuffed pockets as good options to try. So I'm going to see how a double-stuffed Kawaii holds up, and also explore the fitted option. Now the question is which one(s) to try, as I don't currently have any. I'd love to win one or two via giveaways first before splurging on a bunch of them!
Welcome any thoughts...
