Night Time Diapers for My 6.5 Month Old
The last two nights our 6.5 month old daughter has leaked through her diapers, clothing and sheets. This is probably a simple solution but are there nighttime diapers? Any recommendations? We buy from Costco so the options there are limited. Before I head out to Target, I thought I'd see what's the best bet. Thank you in advance.
So What Happened?™
Thanks to everyone who responded. I am overwhelmed that so many people took the time to lend a helping hand. Last night we had our little one in Huggies Overnight and it did the trick. I'm thrilled that washing wet sheets aren't on my to-do list today! Thanks again to everyone.

I have found that when diapers start leaking it is usually time to move up a size. Hopefully that is an easy enough solution!!

When this happened to my son, a friend told me that that means it's time to move up to the next size of diapers. We did and it worked! Good luck!

I am also a Costco shopper and the Costco brand didn't work for my daughter - we had to switch to Huggies brand (which is also sold at Costco). Since then, we haven't had any problems. Good luck - keep dry!

"Good Nights" are fantastic. We'd had leaks with everything else, but these come in bigger sizes.

Time to buy the next size bigger diaper (at least for night time).

Like many others have said, try going up one size for the diapers at night (if you still have the smaller size, you can use those up during the day until you run out of them). This worked for my daughter when she was this young. When she got to be about 15 or 16 months old, what worked was switching her into Huggies Pull-ups (I usually get the nighttime ones) at night only. My daughter has a long torso and she was leaking out the top of the diapers at her belly. This worked wonders and we went from having leaks every night to only about 10 or so in the last year. Hope this helps!

I have a 5 year old daughter and a 2.5 year old little boy. I have tried many brands of diapers, and have found that the White Cloud brand (only sold at Wal-mart) are the best for both girls and boys. They are dependable and inexpensive, especially when you go through so many. They sell them for around $16.00 for 100+, and the one thing I love about them is that the tabs that hold the diaper closed are not "sticky", but are cloth closing tabs. Wal-Mart also sells baby wipes in the White Cloud brand which hold up nicely and are sold either in since packs or in bulk also very inexpensive. Fits in nicely with a family budgeting.

Try huggies overnights. They are a little more expensive, but well worth the money! I still use them on my two year old at bed time. They are thicker than regular diapers and I have NEVER had a leakage problem with my little guy since I started using them. So much easier than changing clothes and bedding in the middle of the night!!!

With both my son and daughter we have moved up a size when they leaked more than once at night. We use Pampers Baby dry for both and have not had a problem.

1-800-diapers.com. Huggies has a brand called Huggies Overnights. They are the best!! My daughter drinks a lot and they were the only diapers that could keep her dry at night. Safeway also has a product called Diaper Doublers. It looks like a maxi-pad. You add it to their diaper and it also keeps them dry. I hope this helps!
