Diapers suddenly leaking? I need help!

I have been using Huggies Naturals since my son was little and never had an issue- in fact, I've loved these diapers. This week we ran out and bought another pack- I don't know if they are making them different or what is happening, but there were three accidents in the last 24 hours where the diaper leaked. First it was poop and it wasn't watery or anything, it just didn't stay tight enough around his legs or something. The other two were pee, both in his bed at night, but we changed his diaper twice last night in addition to those to be safe so the pee shouldn't have leaked... Are they making their diapers different all of a sudden? Has anyone else had this experience? Any recommendations for better diapers? My son crawls, walks, runs, climbs... so something for a mover and also something to get through the night would be nice. Thanks!

That was our sign that we needed to go up in size. Even if they're in the weight bracket for size, doesn't mean they are fitting properly. My son was 20 lbs and the size 3's would constantly leak, we put him in size 4's and problem was solved.

Yes. I was going to suggest what Sarah said. You probably need the next size up. Whenever my children experienced leaking it was always that they needed the next size. That was my *tell* I didn't go by the weight req.
