Excessive Peeing in toddler

My DS is 16 months. He has for about a week been filling nappies with pee. He has been soaking through them and through his clothes in a couple of hours. The brand of nappy we have been using for ages with no issues. I have tried super absorbant ones and gone up a size (now in 5 +!) and still soaking though. e,g, nappy changed by my mum at 3pm and at 5.30 when I picked him up he had soaked through his trousers.

There have been a few mornings where he was wet through, but this seems to happy more during the day. He does drink a fair amount, but not an excessive amount.

Has anyone experience this?

Hi, only thing I can think is to ask if the nappies are, in your opinion, heavier - e.g. more pee being produced or just the same amount of pee but it is wetting through clothes?

If wetting through clothes with a standard amount of pee, I know when my toddler discovered the delights of putting his hand down his pants he would move everything around and then they would leak.

However if my son for some reason drinks loads then of course he will pee more, so 3 hours after a kids party (juice!) he usually is a wet mess.

Nappies are definitely heavier, though relishing the thought of the putting hands down trouers stage smile Lordy!

Maybe I need to monitor exactly how much he is drinking.

At risk of sounding like a weird wee obsessive - have you worked out yet what's going on?
