This post is dedicated to the infants who wet the bed, max out cloth diapers, and just need something new. Finding a heavy wetter overnight cloth diaper is a challenge.
Here are some combinations that worked for my moderately heavy wetter. We’ve used these combos for the first two years before he learned to hold his bladder. Nowe we opt for the Omaiki Hero Night Trainer for those nights when oops happens. These options are too much for my youngest who probably doesn’t pee at night.

I have yet to cloth diaper super soaker, or an extreme heavy wetter during the day or overnight. I know they exist and I know it is not my child because I have friends who tell me these combos leak and overflow in the morning.
if that’s you, the disposable rupturing kid, these overnight cloth diapering solutions probably won’t work for you.
Curious about if you have a heavy wetter, check out what I think counts and doesn’t count.
My kids have never needed a diaper that tops more than 30-35-40 ounces. But there are some kids out there that need that. You might have that child if you burst disposable diapers, and max out everything you can think of. Connect online with a cloth diaper community to help troubleshoot.
If your kid is just a normal peeing night child, there are some very practical and easy to obtain solutions for night wetting. I consider ‘normal’ night wetting to be about 15-25 ounces at night since most diapers marked for overnight are about 18-20 ounces of absorbency. <- I also just made that fact up. That’s based on my own perceptions of the cloth diapering world. My youngest is a fairy princess light wetter overnight.
Side note: Absorbency is variable. How many ounces the kitchen sink test does varies based off so many different variables. However, I still think this unscientific method of gaging a diapers absorbency can help put into perspective a range of absorbency.
4 Suggestions for a Moderate Overnight Wetter
This is a list of heavy wetter overnight cloth diapers I use on my toddler during babyhood. I figured he needed about 20-25 ounces making him a heavy moderate wetter. He needed just a little more than the traditional night solutions but not enough to warrant purchasing fancy smancy overnight fitted diapers.
- Double Flats – two large receiving blankets folded together was just perfect. This combination I discovered during the Flats and Handwashing Challenge and was my solid never-fails overnight cloth diaper for some time. I liked to do the kite fold. Best part, the most expensive part of this cloth diaper solution is choosing the perfect cloth diaper cover.
- GroVia O.N.E with a Geffen Baby Booster (Green or White Edge). But any booster could do the job to jump this average diaper to something more spectacular. [Buy it in Canada – Buy it in the USA]
- Nuggles! Size 2 Fitted with long insert and stay dry booster. [Buy it Now]
- Sustainablebabyish Fitted Cloth Diapers – both the fitted and the OBF’s work great for my growing kid in meeting his absorbency needs. The sized fitted are more absorbent, but because he’s just a little bit of a heavy wetter they work. [Buy it in Canada – Buy it in the USA]
To be honest, that’s about all we’ve tried because of those four combinations work for us. And why try to fix something that isn’t broken?
There’s a ton of other great ideas for finding the perfect heavy wetter overnight cloth diaper.
