Can anyone help me with diaper problem?

My 3 month old son is 13 pounds and he is using huggies snug and dry size 8-15. I don't know whats wrong but he keeps on peeing through the sides and backs. I make sure to move his winkie so he doesn't pee out but nothing works. Should i move him up sizes? or just change brands?

  • Move him up a size. When my son was that age, if he started leaking pee, we knew it was time to upgrade.

  • If this is a new problem and you haven't had issues with them before, he's probably ready to move up to the next size.

  • move up a size sounds like a big kid also i love pampers i always felt them to be softer on the skin and also more absorbant

  • Is the liner in the right place? I am not sure if that is the correct name for them. I wish I could be more help. We get diapers from Costco...the Kirkland Brand. And honestly, they are fantastic and a lot cheaper. I only mention that because if your son is peeing through them like they are nothing-I would try a different brand. I had heard good things about Walmarts store brand. Good luck.

  • After 3 kids I can safely tell you, it's time for you to move up a size. I can almost guarantee this will correct your problem.

  • Whenever I used huggies for going out he would always leak. No matter what size. Huggies just suck for my child!

  • I don't like the huggies. I have a 7week old and he would get pee all over his outfits with huggies...same thing with Pampers too (i think those are just bc they don't fit him well yet..it's like he's in between sizes with Pampers)..I tried the Luvs and they fit him perfect! They don't leak at all and they hold some pretty heavy pee pee...and they are good with poo poo diapers too.

  • Change brands.

    Huggies didn't fit my son or daughter. They always leaked with my kids.

    I had great luck with Luvs, the Target generic diaper (love it!), WalMart's Parents Choice, and Sam's Members Mark. I of course had great luck with Pampers, but they are expensive.
