Cloth Diapers at Night Part 1: Fitteds {twinkie tush night-night Review}

Too scared to use cloth diapers at night? Maybe you tried to use cloth at night but your baby had wet pj’s and sheets in the morning. Or perhaps you just want to try something new? Hopefully, this nighttime cloth diapering series will answer many of your questions and lay your concerns to rest. Your kid CAN go 12+ hours at night in a cloth diaper without leaking. The trick is finding what works for you and your little one.

First up: Fitteds! {next up…wool covers!}

A fitted cloth diaper is something where the WHOLE diaper is the absorbent part. That is why they make an awesome nighttime diapering choice. It has no waterproof layer. It can be made waterproof with a TPU/PUL cover, fleece or a wool soaker. If you want to see more info on what a fitted is and how it works check out this post!

If your baby isn’t a heavy wetter then you might be able to get away with any fitted and a waterproof cover at night. But if your kid is anything like mine, you need to pull out the big guns! For this I recommend a cotton/bamboo or hemp blend fitted and a lanolized wool cover.

night night wildest dreams OBVone

Many people have found amazing nighttime success with Sustainablebabyish’s Organic Bamboo Fleece fitteds or Sbish OBF’s. That is where I started when I first decided to go all night without changing Sophia’s diapers. She was around 6 months. Up until then we changed her when she woke up to eat. FYI, I will be using overnight diapers sooner with my next!

With the Sbish OBF’s Sophia woke up totally dry every morning. Unfortunately, what happened after a while was that she developed a horrible rash on her inner thighs where the edge of the diaper rubbed. After weeks of trial and error I finally discovered with the help of an awesome pediatric dermatologist that the problem was a friction rash from the serged edging on the OBF’s. We started using Kawaii Goodnight Heavy Wetters (GNHW) and the problem immediately began to clear.

I have been really happy with the Kawaii GNHW, I just miss our fitteds and wool at night. (I LOVE wool!) In comes twinkie tush night-nights! I needed to find something absorbent enough that also had the option for turned and topstitched edges. twinkie tush came HIGHLY recommended and fit the bill. Twinkie tush was kind enough to give me a night-night to review. (Please note, that while I did receive this diaper for free, my opinion and review is honest and true.)  I have to say, I really love it!

Sophia is 21 months and still pees A LOT at night. twinkie tush has been amazing for her. These are made from organic bamboo velour or OBV. This is where one of the biggest differences from a Sbish OBF is noticed. A Sbish OBF will become somewhat crunchy and stiff with use, even Mrs. Meyers only softened it up so much. A twinkie tush OBV stays amazingly soft wash after wash. Also, the option to either have a serged edge or turned and top stitched is huge. We couldn’t use many fitteds at night because of the serged edges.

*Update* Sophia is now three years old. She only wears a diaper at night now. I think she is around 34 pounds now and still has room left in her night nights. They still look the same as they did when they were new. I still love mine.*

These are labeled to be used from 12-35 pounds. It uses a fold down rise to adjust sizing. I would say at the smaller sizes that you won’t be using all the included inserts (that’s why it’s great that they snap in separately). These have been drying in one cycle because all inserts snap out to help aid in faster drying.

I am sure you will notice that the price of these is somewhat higher than other fitteds, but I believe it is worth it if you can afford to get one or a few.  I want to point out that the quality of the night-night is noticeably impeccable. The materials used are very high quality. Finally, this is a product that is made in the USA, right in my home state of New York!

I asked Mike and Gretchen, the owners over at twinkie tush, to tell us a little bit about their night-night fitteds:

Twinkie tush fitted cloth diapers have always been known for their absorbency, but the Twinkie tush night-night takes it to another level.  The night-night has been called “the Holy Grail of nighttime diapering”, with 18 layers of absorbency from soaker to shell.  Paired with a wool cover, this is a bulletproof nighttime solution.  Twinkie tush night-nights are sometimes stocked a la carte or through pre-order, and are always available in made-to-order 4-packs at twinkietush.com.

Remember that fitteds made of bamboo and cotton blends will be more absorbent than straight cotton. The next part of our nighttime cloth diapering is getting the fitted waterproof. The most bulletproof option is WOOL! Stay tuned for the next installment to see my recommendations on what to use and how to lanolize wool quickly and easily! There is no reason to be afraid of wool and I will show you why. Don’t want to miss any of the cloth Diapering at night series? Sign up for email updates so you know when we have the new posts up on the blog.

I tested the absorbency of the twinkie tush night night. It was OFF THE CHART! thirsty. Blew everything else out of the water. See the results here.

    Question about a comment you made: “A Sbish OBF will become somewhat crunchy and stiff with use.” I am currently using another highly rated brand of nighttime diaper. The inserts and fitted part of the diaper come out of the wash totally soft and moldable. However, I’ve noticed as my baby pees in it, the inserts get a little stiff when wet (which I imagine can’t be comfy when try to sleep in a full diaper). The fitted part is extremely soft because it’s made from fleece so that’s not an issue – just the inserts. In your review, are you saying the Twinki Tush diaper stays extermely soft even when peed in throughout the night or do you just mean it comes out of the wash soft? Thanks for clarifying!

    Reply

    • Jennifer Reinhardt Says:

      Hi Kathleen, Some materials are known to stay soft no matter what. Sometimes it also has to do with having hard water. No matter what I did my Sbish OBF was stiff all the time. The only thing I could do was use Mrs. Meyers Fabric Softener which is cd safe plant based softener. You shouldn’t use every wash thought. My Twinkie Tush are still smooshy soft. Even after sophia wears them all night, they are wet…at soft in the morning. I also found Kissing Blake to have very soft inserts so maybe check them out as well.

    We had a HORRIBLE experience with GNHWs. I’m so disappointed and I can’t figure out why they seemed to work so well for everyone else but not for us. I use them as back ups during the day when my stash is in the wash and ONLY when we’re not leaving the house. THAT’S how bad they are.

    I continue to struggle with overnight……we use SLOOMB hemp/bamboo fitted overnights…with a wool cover…..and now that my baby is wearing fleece pajamas the wool is starting to stink up the fleece pajamas so in the morning my baby smells like urine :( I tried washing the wool and relanolizing, but it is still happening. I need to use fitted and wool because he is a VERY heavy wetter, so nothing else worked for us..

      If you leave the wool uncovered and open to the air it will actually evaporate some of the moisture instead of wicking to the pants. Have you thought about getting wool longies instead?

    Hey!
    I am wondering what the best options for diaper pins are-
    I currently use sassy- but I’m finding that they don’t want to go through a double overnight diaper(two flats diaper bag fold)- and if I get them through the ends want to pop out because of the larger amount of fabric they have to secure. Which just wont do! It’s hard to find good child proof pins these days! And I am not a fan of the snappi or boingo-
    Thanks!!

  70. Erin Says:

    Prior to using exclusively TTs at night under a wool or PUL cover, I had been using a hybrid system with an ON doubler + insert. It worked great, until LO got big enough to roll over at night and became a side or tummy sleeper. The hybrid/insert system didn’t provide absorbency on the sides, so we were getting leaks. The fitteds + cover system is bulletproof!

    I am expecting my first baby any day now and can’t wait to start cloth diapering. I am interested in learning about diapers that will be good from birth on. I would love to see about getting one of the night nights but since the one in the post is rated at a 12-35 lbs I’m wondering if there are smaller ones made for newborns or if it’s not necessary until they are a bit older.

      Tara, you can use smaller sized fitteds and still have plenty of absorbency. Kissaluvs is very good for newborns. :)

    At just a month old, I can tell it’s going to be a long wet road with my 2nd. We didn’t do fitted with #1, but have gotten a couple kiwi pies for nighttime this go around. Hoping we don’t have the same served edge issue. We have a couple wool covers inherited from a friend, but they’re toddler size and I’m on the fence about the investment. We went through so many trials/mostly errors with #1 trying to figure out nighttime that we now have an entire set of diapers with MF not even in use! (MR does not play well with our water, and subsequently caused lots of rashes.)

      Wool is actually one of the most breathable fabrics available. Works amazing even in heat because wetness literally evaporates. Wool is much cooler than any TPU/PUL cover would be.

    This looks like a great topic. I hear so many people saying they have to use disposables at night. I had almost gotten to that point. This is my third cloth baby and the first time I’ve ever had leakage issues. I part time EC’d my first two and started off doing the same with my current baby but I’m having health issues and just don’t have the energy. Anyway, my first two babies didn’t pee at night so I never had to deal with toddler night time pee. At first, baby girl didn’t wet all that much, plus, as a result of the part time EC, she also stayed dry overnight. Once we got out of the habit, the simple pocket diapers began to leak. We went to two soakers, then that began to leak. I finally figured out if I just put a wool soaker over the top of everything my bed would be dry in the morning. I’m tempted to try fitteds. I have two nice ones. We’ll see.

    For those asking about stay-dry options, would a simple rectangle of microfleece purchased from a fabric store work? I don’t mean microfiber. I mean microfleece like what’s on the inside of many pocket diapers. Just a suggestion. I also recall seeing wool liners at GMD.

    I don’t know if I have any questions or anything I’d like to see. I’m just looking forward to the rest of this night time series. It’s interesting. :)

I’m curious – did you try putting microfleece over the diaper and having it extend over the serged edges? The other thing I’m wondering – I use a wool cover with my sbish, and I know that baby is supposed to stay cool in summer and warm in winter with the wool, but i feel like he gets really hot and uncomfortable in the wool.
