  • How old is he. Weight and size of diaper. Also what brand do you use. For some reason my girls did great in pampers and my boys did great in huggies.

  • It sounds like his poops are too big, not the diapers. How much does he weigh and what size are you using? There is a weight range on the diaper box.

  • Sounds like the diaper may be too small. My kids would have "blowouts" multiple times a day with Huggies, but were just fine in the same size Pampers. If we'd have the problem you describe we'd move up a size in diapers and the problem would go away.

  • WE have our DD ina weight appropriate Pampers diaper and don't get blow outs, but during the night, we put the next size up on here and it works out well.

  • Sounds more like it's too small. That was the biggest sign we needed to move up a size.

  • I would go up a size. I used disposable diapers unil my son was 2 months old. I hated that they leaked and we had alot of blowout up his back. I switched to Bumgenius cloth diapers and I never had a leak or blowout since. he is almost a year old now.
