Almost every time I put George in the swing, I end up having to strip him and the swing because he leaks...thru his sleeper, tshirt, blanket, and the padding of the swing so that there is pee on the plastic of the swing underneath the cover. Gross!

It happens in our regular diapers (Seventh Generation) and it happened in Huggies, too. It never happens with Abigail. What am I doing wrong? Is it just the angle he is sitting? I don't get it...he never leaks any other time.

Ideas?

How weird! I can't believe it's enough pee to go through the diaper and collect in the bottom of the swing! That's crazy. Have you checked to make sure the diaper goes up enough in the front? Or do you think it's leaking out the legs?

Madalyn used to leak when she was in her mamaroo ... but that hasn't happened since we switched her out of NB diapers. Weird!

Is it possible he is out growing that size?

Ares seemed to fit into size one diapers perfectly fine, but the same thing you described kept happening to him. So I switched him to size two diapers and it hasn't happened since.

I don't think it is the size...we just switched to Size 2 diapers (12-18 pounds) and he's about 13.5 pounds. The size 1's are definitely too small, and I'd think the 3's would be too big (I think they start at 16 pounds). Maybe I'll buy a small package and see?

I thought the same thing when I switched to 2's at first.. They were HUGE on him. But they prevented the leaks so maybe you should test out a small pack.

where are you noticing the wetness on his clothes, on the front or back? i was going to suggest sizing up too but it looks like you are in the right size, 3s would be huge! maybe the size 2s are not fitting quite well too, and he just needs to chunk up a bit more.

are you making sure his penis is pointed down when you put the diaper on?

Yes, the penis is pointed down I remember that hint from you when we were still pregnant. The first time DH changed his diaper and pointed it up, it was a wet mess!

The wetness is on the back...not sure if it is coming out the legs or the back because everything is wet.

so did this just start with the diaper size change? i'm guessing he's just inbetween sizes and the 2 doesn't fit great yet.
