  • Limit the amount of fluid he drinks before bed

  • alimit fluids and also try to make sure his penis isnt sticking up when the diaper is on. my eldest would pee out the top of his diaper if I didnt lay it down. also you could speak with his doctor about it. not that its a medical issue but maybe they have advice on brands or added protection.

  • i usually cut out drinks an hour before bedtime...maybe a small sip of water if they feel thirsty at bedtime. and encouraging going potty before bedtime. good luck!

  • I used to "double wrap" my son.... use a diaper, then wrap another around his waist 'cause he peed so much at night....even if I stopped fluids by a cut off time before bed!! I only had to do it for a few weeks and then he stopped.

  • what size is he in? you can try putting him in the next suze up at bed time or putting him in an overnight diaper at bedtime or you can try putting an always inifinity maxi pad in the diaper too they are crazy absorbent and when they get full then it leaks into the diaper when we use those we NEVER have a leak (but i know that sounds nuts)

  • Usually when that happen with my children it was because they needed to be moved up a size.

  • my dd used to do that too, we have started putting her in Goodnight pull-ups it seems like they can hold more pee then a pamper!

  • My son got old enough to tell me himself if his penis is up he will pee through. Also, buy rubber pants that are used for cloth diapers and that will help with the leaking.
