With our recent night absorbency Olympics competition we got a better gauge on what is a light, medium and heavy wetter. Combining this information with our own extensive experience, here is a comparison chart to help you gauge where your LO is, as well as help with some possible solutions for your cloth bum. We will be updating this file after each round of tests. We plan to run night absorbency test competitions every few months and use the data to help make the information we provide as accurate as possible

 

Night: Light Wetter (output 0-200ml)

  • A double stuffed pocket (either MF, Bamboo or Charcoal Bamboo) will work for extreme light wetters, but most babies will need more than that even if they are light wetters

  • A pocket stuffed with a natural fibre insert + receiving blanket

  • A pocket stuffed with a hemp flat

  • A terry flat with a cover

  • A good fitted with a cover should be more than enough

  • A good hybrid fitted with a cover

  • A hemp flat boosted with 1 night insert/receiving blanket/another natural fibre insert and a cover will also work great

  • 2 receiving blankets with a cover would be overkill a solid solution

  • 2 hemp flats with a cover would be overkill and definitely a solid solution

  • The following will work coverless if no tight clothes over them: Moxxy Windpro, Sassybumz SBT, PD fleece night nappy, PD Sweetdreamz etc

Night: Medium Wetter (Output 200-400ml)

 

Your baby will have a big booty ;)

  • Pockets are not recommended for medium wetters and above, to stuff a pocket with enough absorbency you will start getting leg gaps or inserts moving causing leaks even though you haven't used the full absorbency capability of the inserts yet, you can however use your pocket cover over folded flats

  • A well prepped fitted boosted with an additional natural fibre insert or 2 with a cover

  • A well prepped hybrid fitted with an additional natural fibre insert or 2 with a cover

  • 2 terry flats with a cover  (eg origami fold + padfolded)

  • 2 hemp flats with a cover (eg origami fold + padfolded)

  • A night nappy boosted with an additional insert

  • Moxxy windpro with a cover and boosted with an additional insert

  • Sassybumz SBT or PD fleece night nappy boosted with an additional insert will work coverless, unboosted it will need a cover

  • PD Sweetdreamz night nappy will work coverless

Night: Heavy Wetter (Output 400-600ml)

You will have a huge bum and night cloth might start to get challenging, make sure your fit etc is perfect!

  • A well prepped fitted boosted with an additional hemp flat between the cover and fitted plus an insert or 2 inside with a PUL/fleece/wool cover

  • A well prepped hybrid fitted with an additional hemp flat between the cover and hybrid fitted with an additional natural fibre insert or 2 inside with a PUL/fleece/wool cover

  • 2 terry flats boosted with a natural fibre insert with a cover

  • 2 hemp flats with a cover (you can boost with an additional insert, but it shouldn't be necessary most of the time)

  • A night nappy boosted with a hemp flat or a few natural fibre inserts

  • Moxxy windpro and a Sassybumz SBT will need to be boosted with a hemp flat and covered (PUL/wool/fleece)

  • PD fleece night nappy with a cover

  • PD Sweetdreamz night nappy with a cover

Night: Extreme Heavy Wetter (Output 600+ml)

 

This is very rare! If all the heavy wetter solutions leak for you I would first look at the other factors that determine night time cloth success before assuming that you do have an extreme heavy wetter

  • 2 hemp flats boosted with additional hemp inserts and a cover

  • PD Sweetdreamz boosted with a cover

Light, Medium, Heavy Wetter: 

Nights
