Night nappies are not something you need to think about too early on. Wait till bub is sleeping longer stretches and you’ve found your feet. Then you can start researching. In the video below, Jenna shares some of her hands-on experience using night cloth nappies. The night nappy combo shown in this video is a Bamboo Delight, muslin flat nappy and a PUL gusseted cover.
Jenna is the resident social media guru here at Bubblebubs. She has been using and advocating for cloth nappies in Australia since her son was born two years ago.
There can be some trial and error involved in finding the perfect night nappy combo but we’ve got lots of resources to start you off on the right foot.
To start we’ve got a blog about night cloth nappies.
For those who prefer to listen, we have a podcast all about night cloth nappies.
For visual learners, I created this flowchart so you can get an idea of how to pick and mix your night nappy combos. This was created as part of an Instagram Stories series on night nappies. You can check it out on Instagram. Simply go to the Bubblebubs account and look for the Stories Highlight called “Night Nappies” to see some real bubs and what gets them through the night.

Hi, I’m Jenna from Bubblebubs and I want to show you an example of a night nappy. I’ve been working on a lot of resources for night nappy’s and I’ll link all of them in the blog post. So if you’re a visual learner, if you prefer to read about things, if you prefer podcasts, we’ve got all your different options.
And I want to just give you a nice visual example of a night nappy I use.
Put away, thank you. A nice visual of a night nappy I use on Ryan. So these are our bamboo delights, they’re very, very soft. They’re gorgeous, we always pack them in here. And they’re lovely and absorbent and they’re easy to use for night nappy’s so. If you’re after ease of use the fitted nappy’s a great option.
The great things is you get this nice seal around the leg but you can boost as much as you want between the nappy and the cover. So you still get that seal because we’re still dealing with poo explosions every morning. But you still have all that absorbency without compromising that leg seal.
This is one of our muslin flats we sell, and they’re fantastic because they’re trim but they’re absorbent. So what I love, is I fold them up into a little pad like that and then put them in here and pull this up and over nice and tight. And then pull these over. Yes, darling? And he dies. And dig a hurt. And then you check everything’s in there. Everything’s in, you give them a big cuddle and check the back. Check that everything’s in there.
And that’ll get him through 12, 13 hours. He’s about 12 kilos and 21 months so that’s a good-
That’s a good example of a night nappy for a toddler
