Okay, this is a total "mom post." If you don't want to read about diapers or whatever, just skip this one. ;)
I need some advice. Colt is a super pee-r. When he was really small and began sleeping through the night, we had problems with him peeing through his diaper and he and his pjs would be soaked by morning. We tried all kinds of things and finally the only thing that worked was buying the Pampers Extra Protection diapers - one size bigger than his normal every day diaper. It leaked occasionally, but only if he'd had a drink before bed.
Well, we are having that problem again. He wakes up soaked. Not just a little damp, but soaked in pee from ankles to neck. :( I feel so very guilty every single day. Plus, we're washing a lot of sheets. Now, Colt is in a size 6 diaper. The biggest one you can buy in a store. They make Cruisers in a size 7, but not the Extra Protection ones. I finally found some Cruisers size 7s on Pampers' website and paid over $50 for a box shipped to my house hoping he could wear that at night and it would help. I was wrong. :(
We've tried Pull-ups, Huggies Overnights (or whatever they are called), and every other kind of diaper I know of. Potty-training is not an option right now, he's just not there.
Does anyone have any suggestions??? Should I wake him up in the middle of the night to change him and risk creating a bad nightly wake-up habit? Is it worse for me to let him sleep in pee? I'm so frustrated. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!!! I am desperate!
