Ds 1 is 5 weeks and 10lb on pampers newborn and keeps leaking!! More times than not! Put his willy down when change, seal it tightly, seems ok when put on but manages to wee self most times and wake distressed. What am i doing wrong?!

Try a size bigger? Also try other brands, we use Aldi they are fab

Go up a size OP and hopefully that will do the trick.

Congratulations btw flowers

It used to be the case that people who had leaks with Pampers were fine with Huggies and vice versa. I was the opposite to you and was fine with Pampers but had leaks with Huggies.

Have you tried pampers baby dry? The newborn nappies aren't as absorbent as the standard ones imo. I changed over after 2/3 weeks and both my little ones were fine.

Going up to the next size should help

Pampers were rubbish in our experience, and smell funny.

Try lidl, aldi, Sainsbury's.

Also recommend going up to the next size, they grow surprisingly quickly at the start!

Aldi nappies and wipes are fab

MingZillas Sat 05-Dec-15 07:10:35

Yup, Aldi are great for nappies and wipes.

Try the next size up and different brands suit different babies. I used asda little Angels but have switched to pampers as they seem to fit my twins better.

Make sure the frills are out.
Also another vote for Aldi Mamia.

Where as asda fit ds better than pampers ones!

blackteaplease Sat 05-Dec-15 07:13:40

Are you using size 1? Agree with pp, you need to go up a size

poocatcherchampion Sat 05-Dec-15 07:14:35

I think too tight can be bad too although I am no sposie expert.

Go up a size definitely. Aldi and sainsburys nappies were awful for us! Leaks every time, and I found them hard and scratchy. Different nappies suit different babies.

Busybuzzybumblebee Sat 05-Dec-15 07:48:37

My ds always leaked with pampers, asdas little angles one are good and no leaks

Busybuzzybumblebee Sat 05-Dec-15 07:49:16

And currently have little elf trousers on them which is cute

Morrisons nappies are good too. Try a size up or a different brand. Don't be surprised if you have to try all brands at least once as they grow.

Mummatron3000 Sat 05-Dec-15 08:00:23

I've always found pampers to be too leaky! Aldi or boots own brand have been good.

OpiesOldLady Sat 05-Dec-15 08:03:18

Have you considered trying cloth nappies? I switched to them due to lots of leaks and now rarely have any.

NewBallsPlease00 Sat 05-Dec-15 08:13:27

At 10lb I needed size 2
I prefer pampers as they're much softer and if bought on offer in bulk at asda are no more expensive
I use aldi from time to time but find I need to change them more frequently to avoid rashes eg for the tinyest amount of wee rather than a big wee

Nervouswithnewborn Sat 05-Dec-15 10:34:04

Brilliant thanks all this is v helpful!!!! Got another q about rashes too but will post elsewhere - so helpful thank you!! Xxxx
