When I was pregnant with Little E, and even when he was a baby, I really didn’t have a clue when it came to diapers. I thought that as long as E was within the weight limit for the size on the box, we would be fine. Now with Baby R, I know better.
No mom wants to experience the infamous diaper blow-out. You know what I’m talking about, those unexpected “surprises” that always happen when you least expect it. Times such as when you leave the diaper bag at home, there is no opportune time to place to change a diaper, or worse, in the middle of church.
It doesn’t have to be like this though. There are so many things that I’ve learned — often the hard way.
Scenario #1: Just because your baby falls into the weight category on the box doesn’t mean that is the size they should be wearing. Sometimes even if your child fits into the weight category, they might still be wetting through their diaper. This means that you might need to move to the next size up even before they hit the weight suggestion on the box. If they are wetting through at night you can also try using a night diaper
Scenario #2: You decided to go with the cheap generic or no name brand diapers to try and save money. After all, all diapers are the same, right? Wrong. Even though the generic diapers may cost less on the shelf, you might actually be paying more since you will have to use more diapers as they get wetter, faster. Or you might be having to pay to do more laundry after the diapers leak and you have to do more laundry. Instead, pay a little bit more and get a diaper brand that you can really trust.
Scenario #3: Your child is wearing a good quality diaper, in a size that works for them, yet your baby is still having leaks. The problem is that you might be wearing the wrong kind of diaper. Even though a diaper might come in your child’s size, not all styles are appropriate for your child. Often, diapers that are made for newborns are made to be soft and cuddly, and are not meant for a lot of movement. There are other diapers that are meant to catch a lot of fluid, however, when it comes to crawling or walking it might allow for gaps which will also allow for leaks.
