Which Diapers are Best for Preventing Leaks?

When my son was an infant, we had tons of diaper explosions. I was amazed how poop could squirt all the way up his back! I hear this is normal for babies, but I started wondering if it had something to do with the diapers we were using.

At that time, I was a faithful Pampers Swadlers user. As he grew bigger, I transitioned to Pampers Cruisers and never had any problems until he turned one. Now, it seems like his diapers are constantly leaking, especially at night. My son sleeps for 12 hours straight and in the morning, his pajamas and sheets are soaked from his leaky diaper! I began asking my friends which brand they recommend and realized I probably am not alone in my quest to find the driest diaper. I received a variety of suggestions, so I wanted to conduct a survey to see what the preferred diaper is.

My solution was to go up one size in Pampers Cruisers during the day and to use Huggies Overnites at bedtime. I haven’t tried any other brands as of yet; however, the results of this poll may change my mind.

Thanks for voting at The Unemployed Mom! Please remember to leave comments about your diaper experiences, especially if you selected “other”.

    I went with the same course as you- exactly. I always would give other brands a go, but found my preferred progression to be Pampers Swaddlers, Pampers Cruisers, then after that, it didn’t matter so much. I think I did use any random brand of “overnights”. I think also that I bought “for girls” kind because they pee in different parts of the diaper.

    Hi! love your site! I had the same problem, but it was 30 years ago, and pampers were what we used…I bought gerber rubber pants!! it solved the problem and they were soft and could be washed and dried!!!

  3. I received the following email from Michelle, “Pampers just came out with overnight diapers and they work fabulously on my 7 month old who is a tummy sleeper!”.

    I checked Pampers’ site and sure enough, the Baby-Dry Diapers with Caterpillar-Flex expand and contract as your child breathes, digests, and moves throughout the night to help sleep go undisturbed. I didn’t even realize these were overnight diapers! In addition, Pampers Cruisers with Ultra Absorbency are a newer product that absorbs nonstop for up to 12 hours to keep little ones comfortable.

    Thanks for the message Michelle!

  4. It is funny I came across this, as I am in the same situation!

    Pampers Swadlers were the only diapers I would use on my last 2 babies.

    My son who is now 1 1/2 is now using Pampers Cruisers, which he is leaking through at night time. For the last few weeks I have been banging my head trying to find a diaper he can not pee out of at night, and at last I realize there is an overnite diaper!

    I have never saw them before, so I am off to the store to look for them now! I am so tired of washing sheets every single morning becuase his diapers do not hold up any more. I even wake up in the middle of the night to change him.

    Thanks for the good tip on the overnight diapers. I will be getting a bag tonight to try!

  5. […] a month ago, I conducted a poll “Which Diapers Are Best For Preventing Leaks” to solicit input about diaper experiences. It was then I learned about Pampers Cruisers […]

  6. I voted Huggies & Kirkland. After trying way too many brands, we found that Kirkland brand was great for day time and Huggies Overnites diapers were the best for night time. Now our older son is wearing Night Time Pull-ups and they are great too.
