How can I get my 6 1/2 month old son to stop peeing out of his diaper at night?

It seems even though I change him through out the night that sometimes he pees out of his pamper. It seems I am washing linens alot more often now.

  • point his little manhood down, and make the diaper snug so it doesn't wiggle free.

  • Try the overnight diapers. They're thicker so they can absorb more. They are a little more expensive, but you'll only use one or two a night. Take Care.

  • try over night diapers and make sure when closing the diaper up "it" is in the middle of the diaper and not point towards the edge.....

  • Overnight diapers. These are sold in most grocery stores, some walmarts, and BabiesRUs. You'll usually find Huggies Overnights.

    Diaper doublers. These are like a maxi pad without a backing. They go inside his regular diaper. You'll find them sold as the store brand at most grocery stores and at BabiesRUs.

    A cloth diaper. Get a couple of cloth diapers with a waterproof outer cover. Get them big enough to go OVER his regular diaper. These will catch any leaks during the night and you'll only have to wash it, not all the bedding.

  • I COULDNT USE PAMPERS ON MY DAUGHTER CAUSE NOMATTER HOW OFTEN I CHANGED HER, PEE THROUGH THEM SHE WOULD. I WOULD GET THE OVER-NIGHTS, OR GO UP IN SIZE. OR EVEN PUT THOSE PLASTIC UNDERWEAR ON OVER HIS DIAPER. I WOULD CHANGE BRANDS FIRST THOUGH, AND SEE IF THAT DOESNT HELP. I HAVE HEARD A LOT OF PEOPLE COMPLAIN ABOUT THE SAME THINGS WITH PAMPERS. GOOD LUCK MOMMA!

  • pampers were the only thing i could use when my some was a baby but once he hit 6 months old i switched to huggies and bought huggie overnights for bed time... they work sooo much better... now it only happens if the diaper is getting too snug its become my sign of when its time to chagne the size... but overnights are amazing!!!! the saved alot of sheet washings lol...
