Diaper Fail

Last night I used the new Perfect Bum cloth diaper on Owen for bed.  I used the tri-fold it came with as well as a doubler.  Owen is a heavy wetter and I wanted to be sure we had enough absorbency to prevent leaks. At some point during the night he pulled off his diaper.  This is the only diaper he use with the hook and loop (aka Velcro)  closure.  He has never done this (that I can remember) with disposable diapers.  I am not sure if he was awake when he did it, if he did it on purpose, if maybe the diaper was bothering him and that is why he took it off, I have no clue.  Regardless, Owen took his diaper off.  Being the heavy wetter he is, my bed (because we bed share, more on this later) was soaked.   LUCKILY since we bed share, and I know he is a heavy wetter, I have a mattress protector under the sheets.  Thank goodness.  We have had accidents before with diapers leaking so I wised up and put the mattress protector on.   So, my sheets are in the wash. Which is fine I wash the bed linens every Friday anyhow.  Lesson learned, I do not think I will be using the Perfect Bum diaper for overnights any more.  The hook and loop is too easy for him to pull off.
