  • I had this problem with Pampers with both of my boys, so I use Huggies. However, I know some moms have this problem with Huggies and they use pampers. I think you need to see what fits your child the best.

  • I had that problem with my son when he wore huggies. Pampers and luvs works best on my son, never had any problems with either of those two.

  • I think it depends on the kid.......I couldn't use anything other than Huggies on my son, while my best friend whose son is 6 months younger than mine, couldn't use Huggies at all. Trial and error I guess.

  • Different brands fit different kids differently. You just have to experiment. Also, try going a size up. Everytime I've had a problem like you're describing I was putting them in a diaper that was too small. Pampers recently changed their diapers and I think they aren't worth the money. In the newborn days, I find Huggies Supreme Lil Snugglers fit the best, then once they get into size 2's, I like generics just fine, my favorite being Target, Walgreens, and Sam's Club.

  • LOL jesse123456! That's what my hubby always said!

    I remember nights like that tho! Huggies were the only ones that worked for me.

    Huggies overnights were a God send once my DS was big enough to fit in them!

  • I have a boy, and I've found Huggies to be the best! If you haven't, try them! :)

  • I have a boy and loved pampers. agree with the PP that to make sure it's pointed downward.
