diapers

Hoping someone will answer...this board is soooooo quiet now. Anyways, my daugther is leaking through the 12hr pampers diapers over night. So i switched to huggies overnights and went a size bigger... she seems to be having a skin reaction to these diapers though...... we normally use the pampers senstive. We tried luv's once, but she had a similar reaction (a really icky red rash all over her diaper area)... She seemed okay with the pampers 12 hr, and i went a size bigger there too, but she still leaks all over..... I'm not sure what other diapers i can use and am thinking of going cloth for overnight....but not sure where to even begin or how to even do it. I really don't want more work for me ....although i suppose it's no different then changing her bed every morning... ideas?

I had this issue with DD1 mostly because she slept on her tummy with her butt in the air so after a while the front of the diaper just couldn't hold anymore. I tried different diapers and sizes and eventually just started putting her to bed with a regular diaper on and then changing her to an overnight diaper when I went to bed (about 3-4 hours later). Luckily for me she was a sound sleeper and I never had issues with her waking up or staying awake. Not the most convenient, but better than having to do laundry everyday!

We use the members mark diapers with Eve (and did with the boys as well) with no issues.
have you tried by chance using a pull-up? they've got an overnight brand of those that hold more.
my other thought would be to put her in her diaper and then a pull-up over top OR getting one of those plastic pants covers (like you'd use for potty training). it might help keep everything more dry.

good luck!!
