  • Make sure you point it DOWN, and that you've snugged the diaper around his legs.

  • Probably bigger diapers, and a brand change, my kiddo peed out of everything except for Pampers! You just have to try different brands until you find what works!

  • It might just be that the brand is not snug enough around his legs.

  • Yes, bigger diapers, also maybe a different brand. My son leaked through almost every diaper I could find (even when he wasn't totally soaked, a single pee would leak out) until we tried Luvs - they were the only thing that contained him!

  • Different brands fit differently. When my daughter was a newborn she HAD to be in the huggies snugfit, or whatever the more expensive ones were. after the first year, the huggies didn't fit right and we switched to pampers. That also does happen if the diapers are just too small.

  • Try a different brand

  • We have found that Huggies work best with little boys. I think I would stick with the smaller size for now. Also, I think it helps if you "fan out" the legs.

  • I had the same problem for the first few weeks I brought my son home. Once I went up to size one I stopped having that problem :) and I made sure it was nice and snug but not too tight.

  • Sounds like you might need to try a different brand of diaper. I know it may be silly, but different brand diapers acted differently with each of my children...ex: huggies worked great on my first born, but my middle child would leak through on her first pee in them. Make sure the diaper is the right size according to his weight...but I would simply try changing the brand. I found that walmarts cheap white cloud diapers worked the best. Good Luck!

  • I never could figure out how my son could pee out the side of his diaper but his diaper is dry and no matter how I pointed his" stinger "
    he would always pee out side of the diaper, so I just got plastic diaper covers and they helped alot
