My son has been soaking through his diaper when he sleeps on his tummy, too!  We’ve always had good luck with Pampers Baby Dry at night, but now I have to change him in the middle of the night or he wakes up soaking wet.

I don’t know if you already do this, but when DS wakes up we do delayed responding.  Basically, we’ll wait up to five minutes after he first starts making noise to see if he will go back to sleep on his own.  Most of the time, he’s not really awake and he doesn’t really need us when he starts making noise, so if we give him a couple minutes he settles down all on his own.  If he starts really crying (not just fussing), though, or if he’s still making noise after about 5 minutes, then I go in and put him back to sleep. 

I totally understand how tired you are, though.  DS was up most of last night teething, and I’m exhausted today.

I hope it’s just teething, and that as soon as those teeth poke through he goes back to sleeping!  I hope this for myself, too, lol.  🙂

I know for Dirty Delete, baby tylenol helped a lot, but DS reacts best to Baby Orajel.  There’s also teething tablets, although those didn’t work for my kids.  Maybe you can try experimenting with different pain relief to see what works best for him?
