For those of you using diapers or remember your experience with them, what is the best brand for a toddler?

My 13 month old just started waking with a soaking diaper that leaks out of her back and gets her sheets all wet!! I was using cloth but occasionally used Pampers Cruisers because they are so soft. I thought maybe she was drinking too much before bed so she only has two oz of water at dinner around 5pm and I nurse her at 6:30 then bed at 8pm. She always has a fresh diaper on at that time. Sometimes, if I awake in the middle of the night I will sneak in and change her. But she STILL is soaked in the morning!!!

Does anyone know of any diapers that pull wetness to the front or hold more?

Cotton, with pins. Think of the environment.

Thank you I guess?

Umm, I do. I used them already. It's harder now that she pees so much. That is my point. At night I use the packaged diapers. During the day I use the cloth diapers.

Hmmmm, someone trying to start some cloth vs packaged diapers debate???? Love how you try to turn it all around. You are silly and cute

So anyone with some REAL advice?

That IS REAL advice. Disposables take YEARS to break down in landfills. I've never used anything but cotton diapers and they work great, with many other uses besides. At night, just double them and they absorb as good, if not better than disposables.

If you aren't using cloth at night (which I never did either because they peed through) I recommend LUVS. They are cheaper than most other diapers and work really well!

I was going to say LUVS too...I never used them but don't they have a 'leak guarantee'? If they leak, you get your money back...or something like that...

The OP wasn't asking for your take on how to be more environmentally friendly. She already uses cloth diapers more than 90% of the time, which is more than most people do. There are a ton of things people do as parents that they do strictly out of laziness.

Why would you get so riled up about the laziness of not cloth diapering and think it is okay for a mom to formula feed. Breastfeeding is way better for the baby and the environment too! Your priorities seem a little jumbled, imho.

Why don't you just MYOB and stop trying to always pick fights with miasmommy. It is really just obnoxious and prevents people from taking you seriously even when you have something worthwhile to say.

I understand that it is REAL advice. But just like other topics I have been bashed for, I HAVE THOUGHT IT OUT AND WEIGHED THE PROS AND CONS. You don't think I know that it is better for the enviornment??????

Do you use plastic bags? I'm sure that none of us ALWAYS do EVERTHING at EVERY moment that is earth friendly!!!!

I have a compost. I recycle. I DO use cloth. I only started using packaged when she was soaking all over. I have double them. I don't want her uncomfortable. I use a packaged diaper once a night. Oooooh. Big deal.

So LUVS? ? ? ? ? I'm off to Walmart in a couple of minutes. I hope they come in a small bag. . . By the time I use them all she'll be in the next stage!

I do wish I could work something out with the cloth. I heard of some reusable ones that actually LOOK and FEEL like pullups. They come in all sizes I've heard. They are like 40 bucks for 5???? Next time I guess.

There are also some kind of 'overnight diapers' that are made for heavy wetters at night. I think they are made by Huggies. I never used those either... Try LUVS though..if they don't work, get your $ back...
