Soaked at night!!

My little guy sleeps the first stretch of the night on his own (about 6-8 hours) and then comes in bed and co-sleeps with me, and then when DH get's up he goes back in "his" bed and I get up. He was sleeping in the rock n play thing (not sure exactly what it's called, but I know some more of you have it here). Well, after his first stretch I change his diaper, and then bring him in bed. I do the same thing now, but now he sleeps in a pack n play. When I get him in the morning, AND at nap if he takes a long nap, he is completely soaked up the front!!! This did not happen in the rocker thingy. He's in size 2 diapers, and about 13 pounds (plump in the middle). Should I try size 3 diapers??? I'm afraid they would gap around his legs? I make sure his penis is pointing down, but he still soaks the front. This was not an issue with my girls! Any suggestions as to what I can do?

Up the diaper size... bigger is still usually fine around the legs.

I would up the diaper size as well. I have the opposite problem, Gillian stays dry while she sleeps, but will soak through diapers as soon as she wakes up ... 3 within an hour of waking in the morning, and 2 after her long nap.

Have you tried over night diapers? They're more expensive but hold a lot more.

My boys have both been heavy wetters too, Grace wasn't at all
