About Me

My photo
I have two kids - a girl and a boy - and live in north-central Minnesota, land of snow and ice. Well, for 9 months of the year, that is. I work full-time for a local government, and on my "free time" I enjoy cooking, baking, hanging out with my kiddos, and RELAXING.

finally a solution

A pad for diapers.

Natalie has been leaking through her diaper at night ever since we stopped nighttime feedings and she started sleeping 11 1/2 to 12 hours. It wasn't too bad when she had a "dreamfeed" at 9:30 pm, because we would change her then and she would usually make it, but once we dropped that a couple nights ago, it was wet-bed city around here.

Poor Pumpkin would wake up every morning with wet pjs, a wet sleep sack, and wet sheets. And poor mommy and daddy had to do laundry every other day.

I thought about mid-night changes, but the thought of waking a sleeping baby just to change their diaper was so crazy, I just couldn't bring myself to do it. So I researched.

I tried bumping up a size (to size 2) at night. No-go after night one.

I tried a different brand. Or two. No-go each time.

I tried to buy special nighttime diapers. The smallest size made is a size 3. Well that won't work.

And finally, the last solution, the diaper pad insert.

I. Love. It. Dry nights, here we come.


  1. Where do you find those??? Zoe does the same thing! And no way am I waking her up to change her!

  2. Babies R Us. Want me to pick you up a pack or two? There's probably 30 or so in a pack for $6.99 I think. I'm not sure if they're at Target or WalMart.

  3. Yes! Let's start with one so I can make sure they work for Zoe too :-)
