My little boy is 3 weeks old and has such a tiny waste. Every diaper I've tried so far leaks. I must change his clothes 3-4 times a day and then I have to change whatever blanket I had him wrapped in. What's a good leak guard diaper? I mean he leaks from every corner!

Pampers Swaddlers are the best!!! and when he gets a little older the Pampers Babydry are awesome, if you have a baby that drinks and pees a lot [like mine!] and don't want to have to change them every 3 hours!

I have twin girls but I also had this problem because of their size when they were born but the premie pampers worked best at first and then we moved into the newborn parents choice from walmart for some reason they are more absorbent but they are cheaper as well which is a big plus.

I had the exact same problem. I just kept trying out multiple different types of dipers until I found the right one that works with my son. Pampers swaddlers were the right fit and I also use the night diapers because he always peed out of the reg. diapers at night as well.

Like the girls said below, pointing his pee pee down is VERY important. I was having the hardest time when my son was first born because he was leaking through EVER diaper I put on and I just couldn't figure it out until my fiance showed me you have to make sure to point it down and make sure it stays down. Every since then we haven't had any issues with him leaking. I use both huggies and pampers... I like them both. I think the huggies are better for not leaking through but the pampers are soooo soft and I love that!

i am a huggies girl i will swear by them my son has never peed leaked threw them and only leaked two or three times when he was much younger cuz it ran up his back i think huggies is awesome and the best kind i also like pampers they are good too but those are the only brands i will ever use but you might try getting a pack of preme diapers since his waste is small and go from there or what you could do it get the covers that you put on babies who are in cloth diapers that have the plastic protection or you can try cloth diapers until he gets bigger

when my son was born, he was super little. the diapers that i found that worked best for him was pampers swaddlers and parents choice (wal mart). i couldnt do the ones that were fitted like huggies because they leaked. but placement of his pee pee is very important too. lol. my son has more than once peed out the side of his diaper.

I have girls, I know my sister always had to tuck my nephew's pee pee. down or he would leak everywhere.
