Overnight Urine Leakage! Anyone have a solution?

Every morning my 6 month old is covered in her own pee! I use Pampers Swaddlers, and never have leakage any other time, but in the morning she is completely wet.
I have noticed she sleeps on her tummy, with her knees under her so she is at a slope.... I tried a larger diaper and a different brand, but it didn't decrease the amount of urine all over the front of her. Has anyone encountered this problem? It is really problematic because her sheets have to be washed and changed every morning, and I hate to think of her sleeping in her own urine! Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

  • Have you thought about using a diaper cover babes?  Another question like this a while back, that was a suggestion one of the moms had.  When mine had this problem, I just got up in the middle of the night and changed them.

  • My son used to pee buckets at night. I often wondered how something so small could create so much urine...and poop for that matter.

    I would just get up in the night and change him. He wouldn't even wake up half the time.

    Give me that life!

  • Sorry, I called YOU babes, that's not the name of it, lol.  I'll post the link to diaper covers.  You can get the Gbaby diaper covers without doing the entire system also.
