Note also that the amount of pee increases as your baby grows. By the time your baby is 12 months old, the amount of pee discharged in a day will be twice that of a newborn. While the diaper size may appear to fit your baby, the amount of pee may have increased with his growth. And although this one can seem pretty obvious, the more absorbency the better. Also, adding absorbency where it’s needed, and when it comes to little boys, it’s up front. When you add an extra insert, don’t center it. Extra absorbency concentrated at the front is especially useful for older boys who like to sleep on their tummies. This trick can help prevent those nap time tummy leaks.
Check the rise
In addition to more absorbency in front, preventing leaks for boys goes hand in hand with a proper rise. The rise is how far up baby’s waist the diaper sits. If you’re experiencing leaks, it might be time to size up & adjust your diapers to a larger setting. The rise of the diaper should fit level with baby’s belly button providing full coverage over the bum. For help on getting the right fit at every stage of baby’s growth, check out our blog post here.
