Overnight diapers

I did not have this issue with my dd, Nicko is leaking through his diapers and the weird thing is that the leak goes to his mid upper back and seems to miss his waist line and the diaper,(huggies), does not really seem wet.
Lastnight I had to change his sleeper and swaddle blanket twice, what am I doing wrong?

I don't know how big he is but NB diapers lasted about a nanosecond with Evan. Especially at night. Size 1s were a lot better. Also I had to be sure to point him down in the diaper or he'd pee out the top/side and soak himself.

I find that different babies fit different brands of diapers better. I tried using Huggies at first with my DD but she just leaked out of them, no matter how much they looked like they fit. Try going up a size, or you might have to switch brands. Turns out Pampers worked best for my kids as infants, then I was able to switch back to Huggies or Kirkland when they got bigger.

Ditto on the pampers thing - swaddlers just seemed to work best. Then at like size 3 I swap to Target's brand and they have been great ever since

I didn't even buy newborn size this time. Same thing happened with my last baby.

:lurk: Are you making sure that his penis points down when you put his diaper on? It helps a bit, but may not solve your problem.

This is exactly what I was going to suggest. This was always the issue when my boys would have this happen.

I use pampers newborn until she will fit into cloth diapers. With kay we had a few leak issues but we just ended up double stuffing them and it worked out much better:)
