Tips and Tricks
Do I really need a special night nappy?
Not necessarily. All of the Mother-ease nappies are designed to be used at
night with boosting. The key to a good night nappy is it's ability to keep
it's shape with boosting. The Mother-ease nappies are specially designed to
do this. These packages are designed for people who have choosen a different brand
of nappy and find it doesn't hold up overnight or for those lucky Mother-ease
customers who have super-heavy-night-wetters!
Help! My nappies always leak overnight ...
Don't panic - there are lots of things to try:
* Check the fit of the nappy and cover - both should fit snuggly but not too tight. If you've
got the wrong size get the right size.
* Check the cover is not worn out - older than six months you should be suspicious. Covers can
wear out on All in Ones and Pocket Nappies too!
* Boost more! If you can't fit another booster in the nappy put it between the nappy and the cover.
* Change the nappy when you go bed (if you can do this without waking your baby!)
* Always change if you are feeding at night.
* Limit fluids before bedtime (this really works!)
Best tips from our Happy Customers ...
Boost, boost, boost!
Use a nappy larger than what you would during the daytime because the extra layers of absorbancy (boosting) make the nappy a tighter fit.
I always add a booster and micofleece liner to ensure dryness and no leaks.
Put the night nappy on as one of the last steps in your night routine so that your little one can start the night
fresh and hopefully make it til morning if they are a heavy wetter.
Nappies with elastic at the front work best for tummy sleepers.
Put a little extra absorbent lining in the front for boys and underneath for girls in their nappies!
Encourage you baby/child to use the potty before putting the nappy on just before bed to decrease the chance the nappy
will be wet before they go to sleep and eventually to boost the chance it will be dry by morning some mornings.
Use a fleece or wool cover even if the nappy doesn't require a cover. This has helped us immensely with our heavy wetter as it gives him that extra protection.
He rarely wakes up with wet bedding now ( if he does it's because I haven't put the cover on properly lol).
Nip Naps - we don't sell fleece or wool covers but this is a great tip! You can put an extra Mother-ease cover over
worn out All in Ones or Pocket Nappies and even extend the life of the Mother-ease bedwetter pants.
Night nappies should have poppers rather than applix/velcro, because poppers are
quieter if you need to do a sneaky nappy change during the night.
Nip Naps - I thoroughly agree Estelle!
Best night nappying tip there is no harm adding an extra booster or two!!
Be sure your cover is pulled up over the back of the nappy completely!
Stuff the nappy with whatever boosters you have - they don't need to be made for the nappy.
We like bamboo ones because they are relatively trim but very absorbent. If you use a cover
the boosters can go outside the nappy.
