Pineapple Juice seems to be a no-no

So I've had Pineapple juice twice since my little Samaire was born, 9 days ago. Both times she has spit up all her milk. I am guessing I will not be able to drink pineapple juice with her, at least for now. Everything else looks good.

Any mama's out there EBF and CD? She keeps peeing out the diaper so bad at night. I use 2 hemp inserts and still out it goes. Thinking maybe I'll use 4 of them? LOL. I need to get a wool soaker, I know this, but I have to wait till DH gets some checks in for his business. Any ideas in the meantime? I'm getting really tired of changing out her bedding (bassinet) and clothes every time she wakes up at night, which is two or three times.

I used small terrycloth towels folded in thirds inside the diaper, with the nylon (parachute cloth) covers. I still had to do a couple of changes at night--DD was a particularly heavy wetter!

Cloth diapers didn't work for us at night.  We still use sposies.  And it wasn't the diaper.  It was the sleeping positions.  Did you prep your hemp before using it?  I would try cotton.  A prefold or a workhorse.

All pineapple is a no!! My son had the same reaction. Once we had been on solids for a while he was ok but dang he woukd flood his bassinet!
As for the peeing out of diapers its pretty normal for the first few weeks. Once she fills out a little you shouldn't have a problem. Ita has to do with the fact tjat no matter how tight you get thay diaper they find that pisition that hollows out the belly and it never evwn touches the diaper and just runs out instead.
I used to put down a recieving blanket and it usually kept the bed dry enough underneath. Then I just had to pull it up and put another down. So much easier than the full bed change.

All good advice above about CDing. 

The pineapple juice happened to me and my DD, too. I also had to stop eating any other citrus. Lemon, lime, kiwi, mango... Even strawberries - 

shes 14 months now and we actually have a doc appt for today at 3 because she's having a reaction and we genuinely don't know what we fed her this time that could be causing it. 

Hopefully, your little bundle isn't so sensitive! Good luck.

The organic inserts from Flip diapers hold a full 18 ounces (yes, I measured all my inserts). My hemp ones held about 4 ounces each but hemp is known as slow to absorb so that may be the problem.

Plus, you may need to change the diaper at least once a night too. They pee a ton in the beginning.

fitteds with wool worked well for us

also, 2 prefolds--1 trifolded and laid on top of another that was snappi'd on covered with fleece pants

Regular prefolds from cotton babies also hold 18 oz... I weighed all of mine, too. :)
