I have always just folded up a flannel receiving blanket in fourths and put it under baby.....

When they got older and were potty training... I put the rubberized crib sheet under their portion of the sheet and cover that with the folded up blankie.

Makes the "leaks" less devastating to the night.

Plus... remember I have had waaaaaaaaaay more leaks with disposable diapers than with cloth...

In fact, that is when I started using this blankie thing was when I was using disposable dipes.

Thanks to Elke for this Frugal Baby Tip!
