Hacking nighttime diapers (literally!) to control leaks
After many soaked diapers (including the expensive overnight ones) and wads of wet bedding we finally got desperate. One night when my son was about a year old I cut a slit into his regular Luvs diaper, put it on him, and then put a size bigger Luvs diaper over it. It worked, and we have been doing this ever since!
Sometimes, the desperate need for sleep trumps budgetary and environmental concerns.
