How often do you have nappy explosions ?

Not you, but your DC grin
The poo kind of explosion in talking.

I feel like we have too many and maybe I need to change nappy brands. Sometimes it can be every poo for a few days, other times it can be a week without an explosion.

If DS(10mo) has diarrhoea then it's every time, but I suppose that's normal.

Same, several in a row and then none for a while. Usually the biggest nappies with poo right up the back are saved until everyone else is ready to leave the house!

Definately try different brands. My two boys were skinny and suited boots own best my DD is more significantly built and huggies pull ups worked just fine.

My DD is exactly the same. Brand of nappy doesn't seem to make any difference.

we use cloth nappies and have never had an explosion. maybe my dd isnt very explosive but we were out recently with friends and a child the same age as my dd had to have a complete change of clothes because of one shock . i had never experienced that. when i have used disposables i have found that they seem very loose around the legs and waist compared to cloth, disconcertingly so, so maybe they just clamp on and not let anything out grin

My dd is long and skinny and only certain brands work for her. Asda, Boots or Lidl.

Slightly off topic but related.... Wanted to make sure you knew that if there is poo all over the vest, it comes down the way as well as over baby's head. That's why the shoulders have little envelopes things...

ive also heard that piffy, we use cloth too and have never had an explosion with them; at most a little bit of seepage on to a vest. My ds has often had diarrhea and explosions are a lot messier in disposables, its the elastic at the back that does it!

I find for up the back explosions is to have dd on all fours, get her clothes off and then tuck a couple of wipes into her nappy, with half in the nappy and half on the outside of the nappy.

When I then lie her on her back it stays on the wipe and can be easily dealt with

Dd is also 10 months. Had the first nappy poo leak for the first time in ages, last one she was probably about 5 months old.
