I'm so frustrated with this whole diaper situation! I am a first time mom with a 2 week old & it seems like NO diapers are working for me! They all seem to leak, all the damn time! My son weighs about 8lbs 4oz & I'm pretty sure they were using Huggies Snugglers size 1 at the hospital and they seemed like they worked fine. I was in the hospital for 5 days (due to a c-section) and if I recall, he only leaked through them maybe twice. I came home & brought the remaining diapers with me. When they ran out I had another pack someone bought me of the same kind (and I thought size), which seemed to work just as well. I was given some newborn diapers (mom 2 mom) as well that I decided to try bc they had the dip in front for his umbilical cord. They seemed to work at first & then I noticed they leaked as well! They leaked more often then the other ones, so I stopped using them. I went to the store today & bought more of the Huggies Snugglers size 1 and they leaked both times I used them! They seem to be leaking out of the top in the front & the back! I'm SO frustrated!
Now, I decided to put him in the newborn size mom 2 mom diapers bc I'm thinking that the Huggies are too big! When I put them on, they go about an 1 1/2 inches - 2 inches above his belly button.
At this point I have no idea what to do. Do you think I should try the Huggies Snugglers newborn size?
