I am getting ready to make DS some doublers for his overnight issues. seeing as our current situation isnt working so well and the actual overnight diapers are pretty pricey, I will have to aquire them slowly.   I am going to try my hand at making doublers to go with my PF's and use a cover instead of my pockets.

DS will wake up if he feels wet, so I need a stay dry option and I know fleece works well for that. 
 
What are some ideas for making doublers to go against his skin?  Such as materials and # of layers for each?  Keep in mind -heavy wetter and he is only going to get bigger LOL!
 
thanks!

I have some home made hemp fleece ones I really like.  They are two layers, sewn into a 14x14 square.  I left one side unsewn to speed drying.  I fold it into thirds to lay in my fitteds, but it would work just as well in a prefold.  They are a home-made version of these

I lay a fleece liner on top.  You could sew the fleece right to the doubler I suppose, but a separate fleece liner makes laundering easier. Especially for night diapers which tend to get really stinky.

The simplest solution for you might be to trifold a second PF to lay inside a fastened PF, with a fleece liner on top.

Northwoods gave great advice.  I've done doublers a few different ways & with different materials.  They all work pretty well.  I think there are pricey mat'ls like Zorb & bamboo-hemp, but if you are just starting out, basic cotton, bamboo or hemp are fine. For the stay-dry, you can use basic microfleece from an inexpensive blanket or from a local store.  If it doesn't say microfleece, get a look & feel for it to determine if it's on the thin side.  Anything really thick may not let the urine through.  If you shop at Joann's, you can try Alova Suedecloth or crushed panne as your stay-dry option.

Have fun, and don't be afraid to stop by our Creative Corner sub-forum.  We like to be helpful!

I made a bunch of doublers from old receiving blankets and flannel shirts from Freecycle and the thrift back before I actually started CDing and didn't know what I was doing LOL They were basically free and served their purpose although I know they're not the most high tech! Have fun!

I've made some long narrow 3 layer doublers and some more square 13x15in ones. I just used cheap fleece from walmart and cut up and layed inside for the stay dry. I liked hemp terry and sherpa but also made some out of MF too.

i just went to JoAnn fabric and the one in my area doesnt carry and hemp or bamboo fabric..  bummer!  where did you guys find yours?   Now in addition to the night time issue, he is soaking through his daytime diapers... up hill battle LOL!  so i am working on finding a trim, yet absorbant solution for that too so his daytime diapers arent HUGE.

I got mine from Wallypop. She also has web site diaperFab that sells diaper fabrics, elastic, touch tape and such. There are several different sites hers was a little cheaper when I was looking. Some of the doublers I made from MF I used heavy MF towels from Walmart auto section cut it up to the size I wanted and zig zagged the layers together. Good luck finding something that will work for you. Sorry you're having such issues. I remember those days of soaking through everything.
