my son, ryland, has been having this problem for a couple months now. he wakes up in the middle of the night or early morning with his diaper falling off, his clothes and sheets completely soaked. i don't know what to do but i hate that it wakes him up (and i have to wash his sheets almost everyday)! we use pampers cruisers. has anyone had this problem or suggestions to stop this??

Two days ago my son Liam (13 months) was waking up in the morning soaked too. Where I had to change bedding and all. He is only 20 pounds and in size 3 diapers. I decided to get a size bigger for during the night. I did this when he was younger too. It seems it always happened when he was getting ready to switch to the next size up. Since I did this no more leaks. I use Target brand and have had no problems. I really don't think it matters the brand its just a stage that they go throw.

Pampers Baby Dry works really well for me, I also make sure and feed him for the last time about an hour before bedtime, and change his diaper right before bed. He goes down about 9pm, and sleeps all the way through to 8:30am most nights -- have never had a problem with leaking yet. Good luck!

My son has the same problem. I put him in huggies diapers that are one size bigger at night and try not to let him drink too much a few hours before bed. Keeps him dry enough to sleep through the night, anyway!

HUGGGGGGGGIES!!! I swear by huggies, papers I find are alot thinner then huggies, and get the ones in the red box, they absorb more i find.

My daughter Reese was the same way, i switched and i have had no trouble since!

I have the same issue with my twin one year olds. They both wake up soaked and I wash the sheets everyday. I love my zippper sheets ,it makes it easier. I will try the ideas below for bigger diapers. They are still gettign milk in a bottle 4 times a day. They just demand it before sleeping and when they wake up.

My son Jack is a big wetter at night as well. I put diaper pads in his diapers and then I put rubbre pants on over top of his diapers. Sometimes he will wake up wet, but most of the time he wakes up dry. I use pampers and swear by them all the other ones he wets through or they don't fit him right. You can also try to reduce his fluid intake before bed. I also use pads to put over his sheets; like the ones they use at the hospital, but a bit different, if Jack wets through, I just pull up the pad and wash that instead of the sheets. This works for me, I hope these suggestions help. Good luck.

My 1yr old son JP was overflowing his diapers at night too for awhile. We tried the pampers but he soaked them every time he wet. After 1 day of that we stuck with Huggies natural fit. At night we use the Huggies overnight size 4 diapers and this little pad called a "diaper doubler". They are almost like sanitary pads without wings or adhesive. Since starting this he has only leaked through 1 or 2 times & we've been doing this since he was about 6 or 7 months old. The only place I have been able to find the diaper doublers is at Publix stores located in with the diapers. Hope this helps!!

kimberly, i forgot to mention my son is 13 months. i wish he was able to start potty training already but i don't quite think he'd have any clue! haha. my mom did warn me, though, that boys are a lot harder and slower at being completely potty trained. do they make pull-ups for his size? he's 21ish pounds.. and you said you're daughter just turned one? (that makes sense since we're in the october 2007 group) you're planning on starting in the spring? he's my first and i'm a military wife out in florida without any family or friends so i really am doing this ALL on my own.





and oooh i'll try the bigger size diaper. that seems to make sense, it should hold more. i noticed his pampers are more cloth-like and luvs felt like hard paper to me. didn't seem comfortable enough to put on him.

I can't say that we have the problem of the diapers falling off, but I have had the wet clothes, sheets and blankets. We put a size bigger diaper on our little guy at night then he wears during the day. And I swear by huggies. I had more problems with pampers and Luvs.

Hi Jordyn,



Here has been my experiance with Potty Training.



I am a young mom with 3 children... I have a daughter that is 7, a son that is 4 and a daughter that just turned one. My oldest was super easy to potty train, I started her at a 1 1/2 and she was fully potty trained right at 2. I didn't even have to use the pull ups with her! My son on the other hand completely diffrent. He was potty trained through the day at 2 1/2 but at night he is such a heavy sleeper that it is impossible for me to wake him up to go potty. We have to use the heavy duty Good Night brand pullups which hold a lot. He does however wake up if he has to go poopy but he very rarely does that at night. I even tryed letting him go to bed with his underware to see if that would help him to wake up when he is wet, he sleeps right through it. I had to buy the plastic matress pad to protect his bed. I do have to say boys are way harder to potty train then girls. I know he will figure it out when he is ready. I will start trying with my 1 year old this spring to see if she has any interest but not getting my hopes up.



I guess my point is just be patient I am sure your little guy will figure it out soon. In the mean time you could always try the good night pullups to see if those will stay on him.

Good Luck



Kim

thank you for your advice! he's been sleeping in sweatpants, shorts, zip up jammies, and even without pants on and somehow they always wiggle off (or stay on but overflow and he's still soaked). I was looking this up online the other day and this lady said she had the same problem and tried everything, even putting two diapers on her kid for bed. That just doesn't seem comfortable to me. I'm thinking we'll try to cut back on his liquids closer to bedtime and see if that has any affect on it? I just feel so bad though, he loves his milk before bed.

What kind of pajamas does he wear? The only time I've ever had a problem with a diaper coming off was in the summer, when Grant had shorts on and would undo the diaper tabs. I have a friend with a son the same age (1 year) who tried Pampers Cruisers and she said they were a little too big, even though they were the same size as the regular Pampers. I guess I would try different diapers or pajamas that are tighter fitting, that also are one piece with a zipper. Keep us posted : )
