Heavy night wetter

My 2 year old is peeing through his diaper EVERY SINGLE NIGHT! It's really frustrating. He's always been a heavy wetter. We have tried pampers and Huggies overnight diapers. The Huggies worked great until he grew out of the size 6 and I couldn't find a size 7. I have him in pampers nighttime underjams right now. They worked 95% of the time, but we are back to wetting through. Any suggestions? I know a top one will be limiting drinks. He doesn't drink at least 30 min before bed and most of the time an hour. He's also had bloodwork recently and doesn't have any sort of sugar problems.

have you thought about the possibility of cloth diapers for overnight?  and 30 minutes before bed is not long enough, if you are going to restrict fluids it needs to be for at least 2 hours so they have the chance to pee before they go to sleep...but for a 2 year old I think it's pretty normal, my SIL (who was very anti-cloth diapering when I started cloth diapering my middle child) went to cloth overnight for her youngest when she was 2.5 and nothing else would work.

Im a pampers girl but they dont work well at night for belly sleepers, so for my dd we used target, that thing couldnt hold another drop most nights and never once leaked

Good suggestions above.
Also have you started potty training yet?
Even if he is far from ready for nights the muscle control of potty training might help.

Also the water proof mattress covers that are just flat sheets can be nice. Lay one on top, of the sheet for quick changes

Wyatt is a belly sleeper too! I know that's part of the problem.

Children need tons of fluids. Do not restrict them.

I'm considering it, my only qualm is that I'm about to start potty training and don't know that I want to invest in cloth, but I'm seriously considering it. What's a good brand for big boys? He isn't fat, but just square and built like a line backer lol

That's a good idea. I am actually buying underwear today to start training bc he is ready, but just doesn't want to sit on the potty. I think he won't like the feeling of peeing in underwear and train bc he hates being wet now.

I feel that way. I will restrict an hour, but not 2.
