Diapers That Don't Leak Through
I just got my son sleeping through the night about a month and a half ago. Before when he was waking up during the night I would change him. Now that he is sleeping his diaper always leaks through. I don't want to go in and change him during the night to wake him up because if he wakes up he is up for at least an hour or so. I was just wondering if I could get a few mom's opinions on what diapers don't leak. I currently use Huggies. It is hard for me because I dont have a washer and dryer so I go to my parents house to do laundry once a week and I cant afford to pay to wash my clothes everyday. Also his diapers fit him correctly they aren't too big or too small and he doesn't have any bladder problems or anything like that. Thanks
So What Happened?™
I decided to try the Huggies Overnight. So far they have not leaked once. I really do appreciate everyone's input and advice. I love this website. I am glad there is a place I can go to get advice from other mom's. Thank you!

I had the same problem with my son and I used Huggies Overnites when he was a baby and now I use the Goodnight pullups, both work really well!

With my son we use both cloth and disposable diapers. We use huggies and are the only ones we have found that don't leak excessively for us, but at night we use huggies night time diaper and that really helps with the night time leakage.

Hi M., My husband and I have found that Kirkland Signature diapers from Cosco are the best. Superior quality and it takes A LOT to leak. Hope this helps :)

I have found that Pampers work better than Huggies.

i have a child the same age and the only solution i could find was to put her in a bigger diaper and not to give her too much to drink before bed.

I had this same problem with my two youngest. With the last one I found a product called GoodNights, which I think are made by Huggies. I had to get the smallest available at first but this did solve my problem.

Congrats on the new accomplishment! I also had trouble with Huggies and especially Luvs. Pampers is all we buy now. It still occasionally leaks (he drinks 11 oz. before bed and wakes up later and drinks another 11 oz). But they leak far less frequently than any others we've tried. The cheapest way we've found to buy them is in the big box of 104 (for size 3) at either Target or Walmart for around $19-$20. That lasts us about 2 weeks. Good luck!

We had that problem with our son too. I went out and tried a bunch of different diapers in different price ranges, and believe it or not, the Hugies were the worst. We started using the Parent choice brand from Walmart, and they are the one's that work the best for us, White cloud were pretty good too. They are also 1/2 the price and since they don't have any dyes in the matererial, My son doesn't get diaper rash as much as he used too. Hope this helps,

I have tried all kinds of diapers, Luvs, off-brand, pampers, and huggies. The best I have found is the new Huggies Natural Fit. They seem to contour very nicely to my daughter and I haven't had any problems since. My daughter had a very full diaper all the time. She seems to go more than most kids and it didn't matter how little I gave her to drink. Good luck!
