Diaper help?

My ds is 11 months-old and goes to bed for the night usually about 9 or 9:30 p.m. On any given morning around 5 or 6 a.m. we will check him in his crib and he is completely soaked through his jammies, oftentimes the "diaper gel" is all the way up and down his back. Does anyone have any ideas? He takes a 6 ounce bottle at bedtime, but other than that his fluid intake is limited in the evenings. Thanks!

  • There are a few things you can do. Huggies has an overnight diaper that I heard works really well, You can go up a size in your current diaper and see if that helps, or wake up and change his diaper sometime during the night. My 1 year old goes to bed at 8 and wakes up at 8 or 9 and is not soaked through. We use the Target Brand Up & Up diapers. You can want to change brands of diapers too. Hope this helps.

  • DD was like this too...I used the huggies overnights for bedtime (I think its a purple package...not all grocery stores by me had them). They did the trick for us, but I have a friend that used to put 2 diapers on her kids...said that worked for her, but I never tried it...

  • we use the pampers cruisers and haven't had a problem...my daughter takes about 6 ounces right before bed....no need to limit his intake, just get better diapers.
