diaper leaks...

my son wears disposable diapers (we tried the cloth ones in the past...just werent for us). he has been waking up soaked almost every day lately. I kinda blamed SO at first thinking he might not be putting them on tight enough, but that isnt the problem lol. He wears Parents Choice. we have also tried Huggies natural fit, and pampers (or Luvs?) ultra leak guard. we also tried 7th generation, but nothing works? what diapers does your LO use? have you had a leak problem before but no longer? got any tricks?

  • Try a bigger size at night. Our daughter wears a 3 during the day and 4 at night.

  • Waking up soaked is common. Here are the choices:
    Huggies Overnights. These work much better than simply trying a bigger size.
    Diaper doublers. These are like maxi-pads with no plastic backing. You can find them at most grocery stores.
    A cloth diaper with waterproof cover. Put this on OVER his regular diaper.

  • Like Kaylee, at one point I had to use the overnight diapers. They are expensive, but you're only going to use one a night. Another thing you may try is not giving you LO liquids right before bed...Good luck!

  • I'd definitely cut back on liquids before bed -and nothing during bed- and maybe go up a size in diapers.

  • Huggies has over night diapers that work really great. They are really more expensive but ever since we used them no more waking up soaked
