  • Go up a size in diapers and see if that helps.

  • have you tried going up a size? mine always have that problem when it's time to change sizes even if their weight is still in the lower size's range.

  • Go up a size AND go see her doctor. Make sure there are no medical problems.

  • Also try different brand if the upsizes doesnt work. Some work better for when they are younger and other kinds when they are older.

  • Well if she is still peeing threw them and you went to a bigger size i would find those plastic covers for diapers and put one on her, and you just might need to change her more often then normal. Stephanie

  • i agree, it sounds like the diaper isn't fitting properly.

  • My son had that same problem but only when i had him n huggies. Thats the only time that his pee would go through the pamper. So i decided to change brands so we started on swaddlers and those work great they have the net inside the pamper to lock in the pee and i have not had a leak yet. So i would say if you havent tried those they might help and can i ask what brand are you using and what brands have you tried?

  • Try changing her more often. If you currently change her every 4 hours, try every 2. If she's taking larger bottles, try breaking them into smaller meals so it doesn't go through her all at once. Different diapers and large sizes may help, or they might be too big and cause more leakage problems. I've seen some posts recommending putting a pad on the diaper to help absorb. If she's just peeing a whole lot each time, check with the doc to see if this is unusual or if it needs additional attention. Just keep trying until you find something that works.
