There are a lot of things you learn from baby one to baby two. You’ll also find a lot of things you did the first time through that you might not do the second time through. Finally, there are things you learn a little too late with the first one that you make sure you establish right away with your second baby. Such was the case with my babies and overnight diapers. The best overnight diapers have a little more substance than your everyday diapers, and the best overnight diapers are a “must-have” for all moms and dads.
Daytime Diapers vs Overnight Diapers
The difference between daytime diapers vs overnight diapers are that overnight diapers tend to be a little bit bulkier, since they have extra absorbent material to keep the diaper from getting too squishy and uncomfortable for you LO. Overnight diapers also can have special gels that keep your baby dry, but can leave a residue on your baby’s skin.
The benefit you get in overnight diapers vs regular diapers is that your baby will stay dryer for longer, which means better sleep for baby and for mommy and daddy. You also prevent diaper rashes on your LO.
Best Eco Friendly Overnight Diapers: Seventh Generation Baby Free & Clear
These diapers are great for eco-friendly parents who still prefer disposable to cloth diapers. They’re chlorine-free, fragrance-free, latex-free, and are all natural. These will stay soft all night for your LO while absorbing wetness as well as most higher end brands.
A possible downside is that they are only sized from 4-6. This means most babies under one won’t be able to use them. In that case, our next pick for best overnight diapers that are eco-friendly are Bambo Nature Maxi Baby Diapers.
Best Value Overnight Diapers: Luvs Ultra Leakguards
Luvs are great diapers that do everything you’d hope they do in overnight diapers. While they’re not as soft as some other diapers we tested, they’re plenty soft and comfortable for your LO, leading to a great night’s rest!
Best Overnight Diapers Overall: Pampers Swaddlers Overnights
From the comfortable elastic waistband to the ultra-absorbent material, the best overnight diapers have to be the Pampers (although we also really like the Huggies Overnight Diapers). Most moms like me like to wetness indicator, as it allows you to know if there is any wetness inside without having to guess (I still like to change my LO’s diaper before putting them down a final time if there is even a little wetness). Expect your baby to stay dry for up to 12 hours with these top-of-the-line overnight diapers.
