It’s all about the angle
Pay attention to the angle of his dangle – and point it down. This is the best piece of advice I can give you if you’re diapering (cloth or otherwise) a boy. Make sure, at every change that you gently point the penis down between the legs, sounds easy but is easily forgotten at 2am or when you’ve got a fussy baby. However, this will help keep the majority of pee hitting the diaper where it’s most absorbent. Point it to one side and you’ll get leaks out the legs; point it up and pee will flow up the tummy, over the hip and out the back making a wardrobe change necessary along with a diaper change.
