Cloth Diapers Overnight: Flip Covers with Best Bottom and FuzziBunz Inserts

When I first started out with cloth diapers on my daughter, I had one overnight diaper that consisted of a Blueberry pocket diaper with two Blueberry bamboo inserts and one microfiber insert. However, because I wanted to extend the time between loads of diaper laundry to every other day and then every third day, I needed to come up with some other nighttime cloth diaper solutions. Along the way, I tried combinations of pocket diapers with various inserts including bamboo inserts.

For the past few months, though, I have been consistently using a Flip cover with a Stay Dry Best Bottom insert, a microfiber overnight Best Bottom insert, and a FuzziBunz minky insert as my overnight nighttime cloth diaper solution. I am not a big fan of pocket diapers. I much rather prefer all-in-two diapers or at least a diaper cover. Best Bottom Diapers are my absolute favorite brand of diaper, and I pretty much exclusively use Best Bottoms on my daughter now. Once I buy five remaining shells, I will have the entire collection of Best Bottom covers.

If I could make one improvement to my Best Bottom shells, however, I would make one slight adjustment: I would add a flap to the front and back inside the shell to hold the inserts in place just a little better. During the day, the snap-in inserts work great on my daughter. However, at night, because I use multiple inserts, the inserts have the potential to sneak out just a little, causing some slight wicking throughout the night.

With that said, I can and have used a Best Bottom shell stuffed with a Stay Dry Best Bottom insert, a microfiber overnight Best Bottom insert, and a microfiber Best Bottom doubler overnight on my daughter. An easier solution, though, is to use a Flip cover stuffed with a Stay Dry Best Bottom insert, a microfiber overnight Best Bottom insert, and a FuzziBunz minky insert. The Stay Dry insert keeps my daughter feeling dry, and the microfiber and minky inserts hold in up to twelve hours of moisture. I have yet to have any major leaks overnight!

So, if you are looking for a great overnight nighttime cloth diaper solution, then I highly recommend investing in a few Flip covers as well as some Stay Dry Best Bottom inserts, microfiber overnight Best Bottom inserts, and FuzziBunz minky inserts. Your baby, and the bed sheets, will thank you!
