Best Overnight Diapers For Heavy Wetters 2017 – Buyer’s Guide

My son loves to doze off on his tummy. And when he was younger, he would consume a bottle or two every few hours at night. With that, I had to deal with leaking nappies regularly.

So I tried looking for the best overnight diapers for heavy wetters to address this problem.

Aside from ‘investing’ in good overnight nappies, there are other things you can do to minimise chances of nighttime leaky diapers.

Huggies Overnites Diapers

Perhaps you’re already familiar with this brand since it’s one of the most popular diapers today. The company designed this particular nappy for use during baby’s sleep.

It’s super absorbent and can stay dry for up to 12 hours or the entire evening.

With this, there’s minimal chance of disturbing the little one because it won’t end up soggy in the middle of the night.

PROS

  • The waistband offers a snug fit for toddlers. It is one of the things to consider because if your baby wears diapers which are smaller or bigger than his actual size, it will most likely end up leaky.
  • It has a breathable outer cover. It will ensure maximum comfort for your little one.

    You wouldn’t want something that’s way too tight because it might end up disrupting their sleep.
  • It holds a lot of pee which makes it ideal for heavy wetters even if they sleep through the whole 12 hours.
  • The nappies have adorable cartoon designs.

CONS

  • You still need to look out for your baby’s reaction (like rashes along the waist or butt) to this disposable diaper especially if they have sensitive skin.
  • The tabs might sometimes rip.
Pampers Underjams Bedtime Underwear

This pull-up offers nighttime protection for heavy wetters with its NightLock technology which seals in the wetness.

It has cloth-like material to keep babies comfortable, and it’s designed to mimic underwear so the skin can breathe.

This one is for boys, but there’s a different one specially made for little girls.

PROS

  • It’s highly absorbent and will keep your little one dry until morning.
  • Even if they can hold plenty of pee, they aren’t bulky. Some diapers absorb a significant amount of urine but end up looking bulky and uncomfortable.
  • You don’t need to change the pull-ups in the middle of the night which might cause some disturbance to the child’s sleep.

    If you notice it starts to leak, you may need to change the size. It’s either too big or small for the kid.
  • It’s stretchy and fits well as long as you choose the right size.
  • These under jams are soft, so it’s going to feel as though the child isn’t wearing any pull-up diaper. It’s all about maximum comfort.
  • The design looks nice; most kids would love it.
  • Overall, it’s a lot better than regular pull-ups.

CONS

  • It may still overflow at times, but it’s pretty rare.
GroVia O.N.E. Diaper

With this, there’s minimal chance of disturbing the little one because it won’t end up soggy in the middle of the night.

PROS

  • The waistband offers a snug fit for toddlers. It is one of the things to consider because if your baby wears diapers which are smaller or bigger than his actual size, it will most likely end up leaky.
  • It has a breathable outer cover. It will ensure maximum comfort for your little one.

    You wouldn’t want something that’s way too tight because it might end up disrupting their sleep.
  • It holds a lot of pee which makes it ideal for heavy wetters even if they sleep through the whole 12 hours.
  • The nappies have adorable cartoon designs.

CONS

  • You still need to look out for your baby’s reaction (like rashes along the waist or butt) to this disposable diaper especially if they have sensitive skin.
  • The tabs might sometimes rip.
GoodNites Bedtime Pants for Boys

It fits little boys from 38 to 65 lbs and has a five-layer protection which makes it ideal for heavy wetters. These odor-absorbing pants also help ensure there are no untoward smells in the child’s pyjamas or beddings.

It’s a hassle-free and convenient way of dealing with kids who pee at lot during nighttime.

PROS

  • It has cute Marvel cartoons on the nappy. And it doesn’t look like your regular diapers. The design makes it easier for kids wear it.
  • It has a soft and stretchy material and thus, keeps your little one comfortable all through the night. It’s breathable too so it feels like they’re just wearing underwear when they hit the sack.
  • It’s not bulky, and you can barely tell the boys are wearing this underneath their pyjamas. It doesn’t feel heavy as well.
  • It holds everything nicely. In fact, you’ll find out in the morning that the pull-ups aren’t totally soaked through.
  • You can tell it’s high quality – you don’t need to clean up the moment they wake up.
  • The pull-ups don’t fall apart even when it’s full. It fits well too.

CONS

  • It’s disposable, and it follows that these pull-ups aren’t eco-friendly.
Bambo Nature Premium Baby Diapers

These eco-friendly nappies are super soft and smooth on baby’s skin which also reduces the risk of rashes and allergies. It doesn’t contain allergens or any harmful chemicals which might cause a reaction. Unlike other diapers, there’s no perfume.

Because it’s ultra-absorbent, your child can use it both during the day and night.

PROS

  • There’s no irritating scent even if it’s wet or full.
  • The materials are safe and breathable, so it’s good to try for those who have sensitive skin – like babies who easily get rashes.
  • Because it has leakage barriers, you don’t have to worry about your little one’s pee soaking it through at night.
  • It holds an impressive amount of urine and stool. You can go for hours without changing it when the baby’s sleeping.

CONS

  • It might droop around the legs if it’s holding too much urine.
  • The wetness indicator is pretty hard to notice.
  • The inside is sometimes slightly wet to the touch when the child wakes up in the morning.
  • It’s more expensive than other brands.
  • You need to double check the weight sizes before purchasing to make sure it will fit your baby well.
What Are The Best Nighttime Diapers For Heavy Wetters?

1. If you have a toddler, their last drink for the night should be at least an hour or more before bedtime.

Sometimes, it’s tempting to give them milk when they ask for it (my little one does it every single time not out of hunger or thirst but just because he feels like it).

However, try to impose a rule that they should avoid consuming fluids right before bedtime. Especially if the weather’s cold or you have air-conditioner on, chances for peeing buckets are high. And you might end up with heavy wetting every single time.

Take note, though; this is for toddlers only. For infants, you should always feed them per demand.

2. Invest in good diapers. Nowadays, cloth diapers are gaining more popularity among mothers. It’s cheaper if you consider the long-term financial benefits.

Sure, every piece might be pricey compared to the disposable ones but think about it, your little one can use the CD from infancy until they reach toddlerhood.

Add all that, and you save a lot. There are CDs made for heavy wetters. If you’re worried it can’t handle your baby’s pee, there are several tips and tricks you can use just to make sure there are no leaks.

However, if you’re not into cleaning up the nappies, there are other brands which can still help avoid leaks at night.

3. Change your baby's diapers BEFORE they go to sleep. It is what I used to do before my boy was potty trained. The last nappy change is exactly the time I put him to bed, not 30 minutes or 1 hour prior.

This way, I get to lessen any leaky problems, and he won’t wake up with a bulky diaper.

What Are The Things To Consider?

What Are The Things To Consider?

1. Cost

It is the first reason why parents now opt for cloth diapers. As I mentioned earlier, it’s cheaper all things considered.

Especially for newborn babies, they use A LOT. By using CD, you reuse everything.

The only thing you need to do is wash them – yes, poop and pee included. But again, if the price tag is your biggest concern, you might want to consider CDs.

Besides, they have more benefits than just money matters.

2. Baby’s Reaction

Some infants get diaper rash because of the harmful chemicals from disposable diapers, although not everyone reacts the same way.

I know mums who had to deal with rashes on a regular basis, and it’s not a sight you want to see in your baby. Imagine their discomfort.

So if your child has sensitive skin, again, the only preferable alternative is cloth diaper. There’s minimal chance of getting allergies as long as you clean and wash it thoroughly.

3. Right Size

There was one time I was surprised to see red marks on my baby’s skin. As it turned out, it was from the band portion of the diaper. I failed to note that he has outgrown the large size.

The same thing happens with nappies which are one size bigger than your child.

You need to know the correct one because if it’s ill-fitting, you either get leak problems or redness and discomfort of your little one.

Cloth Diapers

Cloth Diapers

Benefits

  • Environment-friendly: This one’s pretty obvious. Think how many diapers you use in a day, multiply that by 365 and that’s the average waste of one baby alone. Consider all the chemicals in each nappy that people throw in landfills.

    Environment-wise, CD is undoubtedly the best option.
  • Huge savings: Let’s not go into numbers. Just consider this scenario: you have a total of 30 CDs which your child uses until toddlerhood or whenever they’re already potty trained.

    Then, another sibling comes along and voila; they can reuse those too.
  • Minimal risk for allergies and rashes: For some mothers, they’re worried about the chemical in disposable diapers – I mean, how else does it absorb the urine, right?

    So they prefer CDs because there are fewer chances of exposure to harmful chemicals.

Disposable Diapers

Disposable Diapers

Benefits

  • Convenience: Not every mother has enough time on her hands to wash the cloth diapers thoroughly. There are special instructions to follow, and you need to use only the recommended detergent.

    With disposable ones, you can discard after each use.You don't have to soak and remove all the poop and pee.
  • More absorbent: This is the upside of the chemical we talked about earlier and we can always see it on commercials.

    Mums pour water on the diaper, turn it upside down, and there’s no leakage – not even a drop.

Conclusion

Now, I don’t normally have ‘ties’ when it comes to best products. But it’s hard to choose which one is the real winner – the GroVia O.N.E. Diaper or the GoodNites Bedtime Pants for Boys.

It’s challenging when you have a child who happens to be a heavy wetter because you end up with dirty sheets and piles of laundry.

With these two diapers, you can wake up to a beautiful morning without worrying if your little one’s nappy is soaking through.

Whether you’re a fan of cloth or disposable diaper, you can choose between the two.
