Below, we round up the top overnight diapers for comfortable and dry nighttime sleep.

Our Top Picks


Best Overall: Pampers Pure

Formulated to protect your baby for up to 12 hours, the Pampers Pure line has all of the best qualities of Pampers products only without chlorine bleaching, fragrance, lotion, or parabens. Available for newborns through toddlers, the Pampers Pure diaper is made with cotton and soft, plant-based fibers that are hypoallergenic, and nonirritating for sensitive skin. Designed to replace older lines of Pampers, including Pampers Baby-Dry, which used to be the top recommended overnight diaper, the Pampers Pure are comfortable and safe for long-term wear.


Best Budget: Luvs Ultra Leakguards

Designed specifically to be budget friendly but still effective, Luvs Ultra Leakguards have a patented ultra absorbent NightLock Plus fabric that keeps a baby dry all night. Combined with the patented Leakguard Core, these diapers effectively last for up to 12 hours. They also have large tabs for easy changing and adjustment.

At 30 percent of the cost of competitor brands, these diapers are still as effective and leak-proof.


Best for Heavy Wetters: Huggies OverNites

Huggies OverNites are the brand’s most absorbent diapers. Formulated with patented LeakLock fabric and SnugFit waistbands, the Huggies OverNites keep even the deepest sleepers dry and comfortable for marathon snoozes.

These diapers work especially well for children who eat and drink a lot before bed. Plus, they're so absorbent, they'll still feel dry even after 9 or 10 hours of sleep.


Best Natural: Honest Overnights

Formulated to have all of the features of top-selling overnight diapers including advanced leak protection, a secure fit, and comfort, Honest Overnights have the added benefit of being hypoallergenic and composed of sustainable materials. Much like the Pampers Pure, the Honest Overnights are devoid of chlorine and bleach processing, synthetic fragrances, lotions, and latex. Their super absorbent core is made from fluff pulp harvested from sustainably managed forests. Unfortunately, newborns can’t use them—they only come in sizes three to six.

Lasting up to 12 hours, these diapers also don't leave any gel or chemical residue.


Best for Potty-Trained Toddlers: GoodNites Bedtime Bedwetting Underwear

Just because your toddler is potty trained—congratulations!—doesn’t mean that he or she won’t have accidents, especially if they sleep deeply in the night. GoodNites Bedtime Bedwetting Underwear keeps your toddlers dry and comfortable throughout the night, even if they have an accident.

Formulated with five layers of absorbent material, the underwear also has stretchy sides and leg barriers to prevent leakage. Even better, they are formulated specifically for the male and female bodies. The boy version has extra absorbency in the front, and the girl version has extra absorbency nearer to the bottom of the pad. Additionally, they absorb odor.

With great protection, these are terrific for toddlers who are in the midst of potty training or haven’t yet been potty trained through the night.


Best Overnight Cloth Diapers: BumGenius Freetime

Designed to be just as effective at absorbing moisture as leading disposable diapers, the BumGenius Freetime are designed to fit babies weighing eight to 35 pounds. The exteriors are made from leak-preventing laminated polyester, and the interiors are made from moisture-wicking polyester that keeps your baby feeling comfortable and dry. Secured using butterfly snaps that close in the front, the BumGenius Freetimes come with stay-dry inserts that can be added to offer extra protection at night.

With layers of absorbent pads, the BumGenius Freetimes ensure that they'll never leak at night.


Best Booster Pads: Sposie Booster Pads

Some babies leak through overnight diapers no matter how well they work for other babies. For those children, there are the Sposie Booster Pads, an absorbent strip that can be added to almost any type of diaper or training underwear. The pad increases absorbency by almost eight ounces, making it great for both overnight use and long trips. Along with being fragrance, latex, and chlorine free, the Sposie Booster Pads wicks moisture away from the body​ and prevents leaks.

Note, however, that Sposie Booster Pads don’t have any adhesive material.
