  • We had that problem with Pampers at about that age so we switched to Huggies for a while then when he got bigger & more mobile we switched back to Pampers because they are a little softer. Try regular Huggies for at night.

  • They work for my older child, not sure about one the age of yours. In fact, I'm not sure the smallest size of overnight diapers.

  • I've had that problem with every brand but Huggies. It's tough, I know. If I buy anything but Huggies, my son pees everywhere. Pampers have worked second best for us, followed by Parents Choice. Best of luck! I 'd say, buy the night time diapers and only use them at night. that way, they'll last longer, and you can use regular diapers during the day.

  • ive found that huggies have better overnight protection than pampers. i think it's because they're harder, they can endure more maybe? lol. anyway, huggies are very expensive, so try going to walmart or a grocery store and buying the generic brand next to huggies. luvs & parent's choice are pretty great and cheap.

  • Parents choince ended that for me.
    You could also try not giving him a bottle right before bed. Maybe an hour before.

  • Ever try Luvs? IDK, I love them.

    Answer by Krysta622 at 5:39 PM on Nov. 8, 2010

  • You know I tried every brand , and I really stuck to Luvs with both my kids. I loved them. Never had leaks , at night though I always made sure to change them before I went to bed. Didn't have to change them til' morning.

  • We use Huggies Overnights on our DS. Eventhough they're a little more you end up saving money, because you do not go through so many diapers at night and you're not washing so many sheets, blankets and PJs.
