Question About Night Time Diaper for a 15 M Old Boy
I am happy with the Luv's brand we use during the day but my little man wakes up everynight because he has peed through his diaper and soaked his jammies. I change him right before I put him to sleep but that doesn't help. Any suggestions?
So What Happened?™
Thank you for all the wonderfull suggestions. I bought a size bigger in Huggies and it was a miracle, he slept comfortably ALL night long. I forgot what that was like :)

my son is 3 months old and does the same thing. At night now, i put him in a one size larger diaper and put a diaper insert inside. This helps absorb everything and keep his outfit dry. Good luck!!!!

Luv's cannot hold a candle to the regular Huggies. Please do not try the Huggies Supreme (no good, streamlined but clothes are soaked with even the tiniest tinkle!!) My daughter tried all different name brands (even the cheap ones) for her kids, and Huggies are the best. Try them to see if they help. Also, my daughter limited the amount her kids had to drink prior to bedtime, that will help as well.

I had the same problem with my son when he was about a year old so now I use Huggies Overnites only at night time and he hasn't peed through those diapers one time yet.

Does he wiggle around during the night and cause the diaper to shift? It maybe time to move up to a pull up at night.

Huggies has great overnight diapers in size 3, 4, and 5

Had you thought about limiting the boys fluid intake after 7:00 p.m. or another time earlier if need be?
Just thought to ask. D.

The Huggies Overnites really worked for my son. They go up to a size 5. There are also other nite brands that you could try that will probably work and they might have bigger sizes.

I agree with the other replies... going up a size at night may do the trick. I had the same problem with Luvs at nighttime. I stayed with the same diaper (since it is less expensive than other brands!) and did a few things differently and no leeks anymore! Other than going up a size, I tried to always make sure the ruffles of the diaper were out all the way around (if tucked under, they were bound to leak), and that his pee pee was pointed downward. If it was up, he would leak through the top of his diaper. Hope this helps!

I would try using Huggies overnight diapers or the next size up from the diaper you are using now. A bigger size usually means more absorption. Good luck!

I've heard the Huggies Overnites are really good. I haven't used them but friends of mine have.
