7 Best Overnight Diapers for Tummy Sleepers

Hi there,

If your child loves to sleep on their tummies, but they keep facing frequent midnight leaks from their diaper which eventually wakes them up, then go for the best overnight diapers that will protect them from any leakage during the night, from brands like-

  • Pampers Swaddlers Overnight
  • Luvs Triple Leakguard Diapers
  • Pampers Pure Protection Diapers
  • Huggies Overnight Diapers
  • The Honest Company Overnight Diapers
  • Goodnites Bedwetting Underwear for toddlers
  • BumGenius All-in-one cloth diapers

Every child is different; some babies like to sleep sideways, some on their back with their hands above their heads, while some sleep peacefully when they’re on their tummies.

It’s cute and cozy to look at a baby sleeping peacefully in their crib and a big moment of relaxation and relief for parents who can either get their work done around the house or get their much-needed sleep.

But, it’s a pain in the back when you hear your child waking and crying in the middle of the night because of a diaper malfunction.

According to my parents and grandparents, diapers are a boon to parents now because it’s hassle and mess-free *most of the times*.

Growing up in India in the 90s, diapers weren’t available easily for middle-class families, so I was raised by my mother tying langot (cloth diaper but without a pad) around my waist.

The messy part was every time I pee, the langot would get soaking wet. My mother would need to change it, and you can purely imagine how many times a baby pees and poops in a day.

Having said and remembering where I come from, diapers are surely a boon for modern-day parents.

Still, it comes with its downs too, like frequently leaking if the size of the diaper is too small or too big, or if your baby keeps turning over her tummy and back frequently, or if there are gaps between the diaper and the thighs.

So, having tested out several diaper brands for my son and my nephew in the U.S.- Here are the top 9 best diaper brands you can use for your cute, little tummy sleeper.

Also, parents, you need to remember that what worked for my child doesn’t necessarily have to work for your baby. So, before buying in bulk, first, test out a few brands, and see which works best for your baby.

Should I wipe my baby every time after she pees?

It’s not necessary to wipe your baby after every time you change her diaper or when she pees, but wipe her after every poopy diaper, and always wipe from front to the back to help prevent the spread of bacteria.

Can I put 2 diapers on a baby at night?

You can put 2 diapers on your baby at night, but another way is- you can change your baby’s diaper right before bedtime and choose from any of the overnight diapers I suggested above that works for your child.

Which diapers can hold the most liquid?

You would need some trials and errors to see which diaper can hold the most liquid because not every child is the same. So, if your child can be heavy wetter at night, then go for overnight diapers that have more absorption than daytime diapers.


There is no rule of thumb on choosing the perfect diaper for your baby. What the internet ranked as the best diaper may not work at all for your baby. So, buy a few packs from different brands with fewer diapers, and see which works best, and there’s no leak at night.
