Steven's doing pretty well sleeping through the night (minus last night's 3:00 a.m. feeding), but his diapers don't make it that long. After pulling up his sheets again this morning (and having it rip--his nice matching his bumper and everything sheet!!), I'm looking for help. Right now he wears a variety of diapers because that's what we were given. He has pampers swaddlers and huggies supreme gentle care.
We recently switched to size 2, so I don't think that the size is the problem. I tried doubling using a size 3 on top of the size 2. The two nights I did that, he didn't leak through, but the size 3 was completely dry. Last night he was doubled, but Mark forgot to change him after feeding him, so his first diaper was soaked, the second diaper had wet spots on the back, and the back of Steven's clothes along with his sheet were soaked. My point on this is that the second diaper did very little.
I spent some time online reading about other people's stories, but most of them had older children and could limit their intake before bed. If we do that, Steven won't sleep through the night. I've read some about huggies overnight diapers. Has anyone used these? Have you found anything else that has worked?
I am so sick of doing laundry--didn't help today that during tummy time he spit up all over and then put his face in it. That's just gross! I finally decided that I wasn't doing laundry until my mom picked him up to watch him while I sub for a friend tonight. She also took home the ripped (and still dirty) sheet to fix it. My mom's amazing!
I had better run--I have to start getting ready for class (esp. since I lost my notes on what to cover, but since it's the first night and I've taught this class before, I should be okay). And I have to get all the laundry in, including the clothes that I'm wearing since he spit up on those too. He usually doesn't spit up too much, but today was a different story.
If you have any advice, let me know!
