My son has this consistant with diapers "exploding" at night even though we have decresed his fluid intake some and changed brands 3 or 4 times. Anyone have any advice?

I've been using the Pampers overnights for 4 months now, and I do not decrease her fluids at night either. Every now and then one will leak, but not often at all. I also pull them up a lot more in the front, to where her crack is almost showing in the back. It might look funny, but it works wonders!

I agree with Jessica. I bought huggies overnights AND went up a size at night= no leaks. My son sleep 10 to 12 hours and the diapers were literaly falling apart they were so wet. This has ending any problems.

I had the same problem. I am now using Pampers Cruisers thanks to a lady at the store that told me about them. I rarely have a problem now. They are the only ones that work for me.

Huggies has an over night brand called GOODNIGHTS. If you haven't, you should try those. They worked great for me.

no matter what i did at one stage my son would flood his nappies. i did everything. i decreased his fluids. i would give him his drink earlier and change his nappy just before bed. went up a size in nappies, changed brands. nothing worked. i ended up changing his nappy in his cot before i went to bed at night and he still woke up with his sheets and clothes wet. my friend suggested a strange idea but it worked for me. go to the shops and get home brand super pads. (for your periods). the home brand ones are cheap and do the job no problems. i put them in his nappy and it was just that little bit extra absorbency that he needed to keep the sheets and clothes dry. GOOD LUCK.

I have twins and they both have this problem, but my son much more than my daughter. The huggies overnights worked for my daughter, but my son still leaked out the top, the Pampers overnights work much better for him, but we also changed right before bed and have started giving the last drink at night earlier. Huggies just didn't seem to catch as well up top for the little guy, good luck!

i used to have that problem when i used pampers with my first born. every night i was in her room changing her diaper, pajamas, and bedding. since then i have switched to huggies or luvs and have never had an issue.

I love the huggies overnight diapers.. they work great on long car trips and flights too.. When my son's weight gets with in a few pounds of the high end of the weight range I go up to the next size. I have noticed when the diapers are too small they tend to leak. My son drinks all he wants all day and sleeps 10-13 hours a night. Since changing to the huggies overnight he has not leaked.

My daughter started doing this in the last month or so. Moving up a diaper size seems to have fixed the problem for her. She was wearing a 4, and we just went up to a 5...she's had dry clothes in the morning since we changed. She was so wet, she'd wake up even after not even a half night's sleep. Hard to believe that 1/2 in - 1in of diaper can make that much of a difference...but it really seems to. We didn't change brands, still use Luvs.

We put on a disposable diaper with a cloth diaper and diaper cover over it for nighttime, and that usually does the trick.

I had the same probelm, until a friend told me abnout Huggies Overnights! They are a bit expensive (about $18 for a box of 62), but you only need them for overnight so you only use 1/day, and I have not had a wet diaper since..

Hi I have the EXACT same problem ! It's very frustrating.. but it also happens during the day,i have tried brand after brand and nothing changes and have also cut down on her juice.. the only thing i can think off is maybe she has a weak bladder and cant hold all her urine ?

I am shocked to hear about disposables bursting over night...I use cloth diapers but have to use 1-2 daytime liners and a thick terry cloth liner at night. Sometimes my little girl will be soak in the morning but I figure it is because of using cloth diapers. I guess diapers can only do so much in a certain spam of time :)

We've been having this problem too. I was going to try the Huggies Overnite. I was just wondering is this mostly a little boy problem or are your little ladies having the problem too?

We had the same problem. Tried double diapers - leaked through the front. Tried Huggies overnights - still leaked through the front. Double diapers with the outer one pulled up a little higher in the front - still no success. Went to Babies R Us, and the clerk showed us a product that finally worked for us: Diaper Booster Pads (I could not find them online, but they carry them in-store). We use these (30 for about $3.49) along with Pampers Extra Protection (overnights - check for coupons...these are expensive). Still leaks from time to time, but only if we give him liquids within an hour of bedtime (it is hard to deny our little guy some milk when he is begging for it at 7:30pm...). With the diaper booster pads, place them higher up in front for boys and in the middle of the diaper for the little ladies. Good luck!

My son was waking up wet every night, and a friend suggested Huggies Overnights, 1 size larger than normal. They worked like a charm, and (knock on wood) we haven't had a single wet night since!!

I would say Huggies and to go up a size! You might also want to do a dipper change before you go to bed if he will not wake up or go right back to sleep!

I am a huge fan of the Huggies Overnights. I use to double diaper but since I started using the overnights we rarely have leaks.

We use the ShopKo Brand and have found they work a lot like Pampers as far as helping with leaks.

We had this issue when he was about a year old. He no longer has issues if we change him right before putting him to bed, and also not give him anything to drink at night (once we put him to bed).

If there is still leaking, then it depends on how there leaking. If your baby/toddler is filling up there diaper to the point where there is no possible way to fill it anymore, try a larger size. If they are leaking but not filling the diaper all the way then you should look at how you put the diaper on, most diapers have flaps, if you make sure they are covering everything ok, then hopefully that should help.

Also, if they are filling up the front of the diaper more than the back, then try to put more of the diaper in front (if you understand what I'm mean).

My oldest son used to drench his huggies, so i started putting on two at night! It worked, and I just put the first nappy on a bit further up at the back then the second a bit further up at the front. I didn't waste any either because as soon as he got up i would take off the undeneath one and use the outer nappy until he got dressed. it was just that bit extra to catch the bits out the side.

I use the Kirkland brand from costco, I just went up one size. My little girl is totally FULL in the morning, but doesn't leak over anymore. I have not decreased her fluid intake either.

oh thank goodness I'm not the only one having leaking issues at night. We've tried several brands and none seem to help at night. By morning he is soaking wet and leaked out of his diaper. He's usualy crying and cold and wet when he wakes up which makes a cranky unhappy baby.

How long does your son sleep at night? I like either the Huggies or Papmers over night diapers. We still have issues now and then with soaking through at night too...I have started to decrease his fluid intake about 2 hours before bed and I put a clean diaper on him within 5-10min of putting him to bed.

Have you tried Huggies overnights? They work for my Son. If that doesn't work try going up a size just for night time!
