Dry diapers through the night

User Profile
It's been happening on and off again for about a month now.

Angelique is 5mo old, and at LEAST 5 days a week her diaper is dry in the morning.

I put her to bed around 12:30-1am and she sleeps until 10-10:30. If the diaper is wet at all, it's not that much.

But through out the day, she FILLS them up, at least 5 times. So I know there's not blockage or anything, but what could it be? Like I said it's been going on for about a month now, and it's only at night.

Not at all. Once 12-1am rolls around, she's out until morning.

well then, I wouldn't worry about it too much...as long as she is filling her diaper daily.
Look at it in a 24 hour period..if she is dirtying the "right" amount of diapers in a 24 hour period, then she is fine.

I would let the pediatrician know about it at her next visit.

Thank you for your response. I have to schedule a visit for her 6mo shots soon, so I'll be sure to tell him.
