  • Maybe try a dif brand of diapers. I think some brands are a little bigger/smaller than others.

  • Luvs is a great diaper to try. Not too expensive, but works like an expensive diaper. I LOVE Luvs.

  • The weight limits are only a guide; my babies usually go up a size before they hit the bottom weight on the next size up, but that's because they get too tall (low rise diapers are not a good thing). You might try size 3 in a different brand that runs bigger or a size 4 in a brand that runs smaller. I have found that there are always a few weeks when my babies are really between sizes that nothing works that great. I like the premium diapers from Walgreen's, but you might ask for brand preferences from other moms with chubbier babies.

  • Big girl? I'm sorry, I have to laugh because my boys were that size at 6 months! lol

    I wouldn't make a switch in sizes unless they are cutting in to her (uncomfortable) or she's leaking constantly. And, as mentioned, different brands run different. My 2 year old (34 inches and 29lbs) wears a size 5 in one brand but a 6 in another.

  • Switch your brands of diaper. My son is 12months and weighs 21 lbs and wears the size 4 in luvs and they are HUGE!! We just switched to huggies size four and they fit great. It's all about the brand!

  • My son is 12 months and weights 25 or 26 lbs. He is in size 4 Pampers Cruisers and has been for several months now. We love them, but my first son could only wear Huggies. Something to do with the childs build or something. I have all these Huggies coupons I won't use if you like I can send you them. Let me know.

  • My son is 20 pounds and is in a size 3 in huggies, but next time I buy a box I am going to get size 4 because they fit just fine. =] and I've never had him pee through one! =]
