What’s So Special About Overnight Diapers?

More Absorbent

Overnight diapers are designed to last longer. So they are typically more absorbent than daytime nappies. Many diaper brands offer up to 12 hours of protection from leaks.

Fit Better

Because these are usually thicker, they provide a more snug fit on your baby. A more snug fit means less chances of a leak.

Sleep Better

If your baby doesn’t experience a leaky or overfull diaper, they might sleep better and be more comfortable.

Additional Tips to Prevent Leaks At Night

Limit Drink Intake

You can slow down the amount of fluids your baby has towards the end of the day; this makes it so they won’t have to pee as much when they are asleep. This can also help you to potty train your baby in the future since sleeping without going to the bathroom is a milestone that should be reached.

Good Fit

Make sure the overnight diaper on your baby isn’t too loose or too tight. If you can easily insert your finger between your baby’s thigh and the diaper, it is too loose and needs to be tightened.

Size Up

If you start noticing constant leaks or blowouts, it might be time to go up a size. You don’t always have to follow the weight limits on diapers, those are just recommendations. My daughter is a little on the chunky size and was in a size 3 at 2 months old.

Right Before Bed

If you put it on right before your baby goes to bed, there’s a lesser chance of them going to sleep with a nappy that is already a little wet.


If your baby tends to leak through overnight, there is a solution out there for you. Choosing a good diaper overnight depends on your preferences, budget, and what your baby likes. Good luck in finding the diaper that suits your baby!
