  • I'd say they were for bedwetters---most kids are potty trained before they reach jumbo sized diapers

  • What size is junbo?? My oldest was very tall for his age. At just about 18 months he was wearing size 6. That is the largest size diaper I have seen.

  • No clue what size those are. The largest they had when my kids were little was a 6. My son was big for his age and started wearing that size around 18 months, too, and wore them until he started potty training at 2. At that time he went into a size large pull-up, wore them for a couple months and had to go to the Good-nights that are made for older boys that bedwet because the pull-ups were too small.
    He's 8 now and still wears that same size. I'm still amazed he was ever that big as a toddler (at 18 months he was wearing 3T clothes). He's still tall but so freaking skinny now it's amazing.

  • At 2-2 1/2, my son was wearing a size 6 diaper. I believe that is the biggest size, besides the bed wetting underwear.

  • micheledo, my son is big also. He is 6 1/2 and wears size 10 jeans (he is tall, he needs the adj. waist, though) He also wears a size 3 shoe.

  • i am not sure as to what you are referring to as jumbo size, The largest diaper I have seen is a size six and my 2 year old son has been wearing those for a couple of months now. He is like 35.5 in tall and 34 lbs. They fit his bum better than a size 5.

  • I have no idea what size that is, my son's never made it past size 3's! But I have peanuts for boys! :)
