Nighttime Diapers – Best Diapers for Nighttime Diaper Leaks

Post contains affiliate links.

Update: June 26, 2019

We tried using Target brand overnight diapers and they are AMAZING. We have been using them for over a month now and have only had two small leaks in the morning! Greyson has upped his nighttime bottle to between 7-9 oz now and the Target overnight diaper, size 5, holds in the liquid just fine! We are still using Pampers Swaddlers Overnights as our top layer, just to be safe. 😉

Our arch nemesis… the nighttime diaper. We have been dealing with nighttime diaper leaks that wake up poor baby Grey and obviously us, too. The poor thing needs to have everything on him changed in the middle of the night, disrupting his sleep and what little sleep we are getting to begin with! I feel like we have tried EVERYTHING. Every nighttime diaper, diaper liner, etc, and nothing has been working. Recently, I decided to double up his diaper at night in hopes that it would contain any extra leaks. He is already in a size 4 at just under seven months old, but now I am having to put a size 5 Pampers Swaddlers Overnights diaper on him as well!

Luckily, doubling up his diaper has been working for the past five nights or so, with no leaks, but I am wondering.. what are other moms using for nighttime diapers? We have tried: Huggies Overnights, Honest Company Overnights, Huggies Little Movers, Pampers Baby Dry (the next size up) and now Pampers Swaddlers Overnights size 5 on top of a Pampers Baby Dry size 4.

I really like Pampers Swaddlers Overnights because they are super soft, stretch around his legs really well, so they provide a great fit, and go up his back enough to catch more pee!

Here is our ranking for diapers from what worked best for us to what didn’t work:

  1. (so far) Pampers Swaddlers Overnights
  2. Pampers Baby Dry
  3. Honest Company Overnights
  4. Huggies Little Movers
  5. Huggies Overnights

I LOVED Huggies Little Snugglers in the beginning when Greyson was first born because I thought they fit him really well and we didn’t have any leaks. Needless to say, I was more than disappointed when the overnights were such a letdown! If you have any other recommendations, let me know! I’m all ears!

I love how they wrap around his legs – great fit!

  1. I used to love Huggies Little Snugglers and Little Movers but the absorbency changed drastically some months ago and they began leaking on both of my little girls out of nowhere! It was very frustrating. We tried a bunch of brands and actually found that Walmart’s brand, Parents Choice, are the most absorbent while also being fragrance free! And of course they are reasonably priced which is great since we have two in diapers. 🙂

    1. Really??? That’s great to hear!! I just bought a pack of Target overnight diapers last week to see if there was a difference and they were great! Glad to know I still have other options out there in case we start leaking again 🙈
