Keeping it Cloth: New Nighttime Solution!

I am so thrilled to report that we have found a winner! Just about 2 weeks since posting my momfession I am so happy to report that we are keeping it cloth and have found a nighttime solution that I believe will work for us. I've read a lot of good things about Kawaii diapers. They are very similar to our favorite go-to diapers FuzziBunz. They are a lot cheaper, and they do have a "heavy wetter nighttime" diaper so I was excited to give it a try. Plus, they are shipped from right next door in BC, so it didn't take long to get here at all.
Knickernappies SuperDo, Thirstiest hemp, inside a Kawaii heavy wetter...I hope this works tonite, I will be thrilled! #clothdiapers
This is my not-for-profit, non-affiliated, sharing with my fellow cloth diaperers, opinion only review!

LOVE THEM!!!

You know, to put it lightly! Know why? He is no longer in a fitted diaper at night. His skin can breath and he has beautiful, soft fleece right next to his skin that wicks away the moisture and leaves his skin all soft and supple and not red, rashy, and irritated from soaking in urine all night. This was not always the case. Fitteds worked wonders for me for many many months, over a year in fact. But I think due to the fact that he's older, his urine is stronger, and he's peeing more...his skin just can't take it. Plus, his battled eczema almost his whole life.

I have tried multiple times to double stuff a FuzziBunz, but they just don't work for us for some reason. The Kawaii's have a strip on the inside of the diaper specifically for tummy sleepers to stop them from leaking up the belly and it works! They do send you 2 microfibre inserts to stuff them with, but knowing my heavy wetter would soak through these before half the night was over, I stuffed them with a Knickernappies SuperDo insert that I hadn't used for over a year and a Thirsties hemp insert. No leaks 2 nights and counting. I definitely will be ordering more Kawaiis so we don't have to wash every other day just to have a nighttime diaper!

I was really worried about it being too bulky and that he'd bulge between the legs, but he doesn't. It's nice and snug and he wakes up happy and dry. Also, no more confusing fitteds with inserts and a cover for people who babysit Braden and put him down to sleep - yay!

What do you use at night if you use cloth? What works? What doesn't work?

    1. I know! It was an awful combo, but it worked for SO long and we didn't have problems for so long. You're going to LOVE these new Kawaiis!

  2. We switched to cloth because the sposies couldn't handle Evie's wetting at night. We just stuff her BG's with an extra new born insert and it works!

    1. That's great! MF alone has never worked for me. I need more absorbancy like hemp or bamboo.

  3. We use Best Bottom diapers with hemp inserts, they are the only ones we have that will work.

  6. Hey..... My question is not about night time diapers. Sophia is ready to be potty trained, do you know of any good cloth training diapers/underwear?

    1. I've been told to not go with any kind diaper. BUT the only time I think I'll use is if we are going on a road trip just in case he has an accident. I think the cloth ones will hold enough but they feel wet so they know they've had an accident. I've heard good things about the Flip ones.
