Many people who use cloth diapers struggle with an overnight solution that works. I thought we were in the clear as we never had a problem using our everyday pocket diapers as our night time diaper….then we started having leaks. I thought perhaps my diapers needed to be stripped and since we had been using them for 15 months, I went ahead and stripped them. Problem…not solved. I then had to accept my little girl wasn’t so little anymore and since she was sleeping longer at night, her diaper was also getting fuller. I knew from other reviews that I wanted to try the Goodnight Heavy Wetter diaper by Kawaii Baby Diapers and was happy to find out that Precious Bottoms Diaper Service and Baby Boutique carried this product.

The Goodnight Heavy Wetter is a one size diaper that fits babies from 8-36 lbs. It comes with 2 large microfiber inserts and the outer layer is made from TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane). So between the absorbent inserts and the waterproof outer layer, this diaper is pretty much leak proof. The interior lining is made of a micro fleece and is super soft. I love the simplicity of the dotty print and it is also very gender neutral, which is great in case I ever have a boy. They also come in animal and cow prints.
My oldest daughter, now 19 months, has been wearing these for her night time diaper for several months now. When it is stuffed with both inserts, you can see it is pretty fluffy, but I’m not worried about it being bulky when she is just wearing it with her jammies. The inserts are nice and wide, which allows for easy stuffing. The elastic around the legs doesn’t seem very tight fitting, but I haven’t had any leaks. I suppose it is good that it isn’t too tight since she is in this diaper all night. The snaps in general have a decent lay out which includes a hip snap to eliminate the annoying wing drop you get on some diapers. I find the snaps to be harder to snap than other types, but my hubby doesn’t seem to be phased by them. On the plus side, my daughter definitely can’t get this diaper off during the night.
Although I mainly use these diapers for my oldest, I did try them on our new baby. An important thing to consider if you plan to use one-size diapers for a newborn is can it truly get small enough. I typically like a hook and loop closure, but if you are using snaps like this diaper does, cross-over snaps are a must. As you can see in the photo below, I can still get a great fit on my 9-10 lbs 1 month old with the help of the cross-over snaps.
Even with only using one insert, the diaper does seem to be a bit bulky for a newborn but that is really typical of one-size diapers. As with my oldest daughter, the elastic around the leg didn’t seem very tight, but once again, I didn’t have any leaks even with newborn poo.
The real perk of the Kawaii Baby Diapers is the price. Kawaii Baby Diapers doesn’t have its own retail shop, but operates solely online. This allows them to save money and pass the savings on to their customers. They also don’t spend money on expensive advertising, but rely on word of mouth. I have to admit, I am one of those people that think you “get what you paid for” so I was a bit wary of a cheaper priced diaper, but this affordable, high quality diaper has quickly become our go-to night time diaper.
You can purchase a Kawaii Goodnight Heavy Wetter diaper for only $9.75 in the Baby Boutique.
