I was so much better with a girl.....

I had 2 nappy leaks yesterday and both times after I thought oh no Ben must be a super weeer or please don't let it be that these beautiful nappies don't suit him, I have opened up the nappy and found his little winkle pointing upwards. And the first time it was so obvious as it was leaking from the waistband :roll: The second time was 2am and I only realised when I had started to feed him and wondered why I had a wet arm! Didn't enjoy the complete change of nappy, sleepsuit, sleeping bag and sheet at that time of the morning, especially as I try not to change him immediately after a feed as he just sicks it all up :roll:

It was so much easier with a girl, I didn't have to think about these things. I will certainly be more careful from now on!

I was the same with Ryan. We had a couple of leaks at the beginning. I also remember Ryan peeing in DH's eye during one of the few nappy changes he has ever done. :hohoho:

Haha, this made me chuckle as the only time Joshua has ever leaked from a nappy was just a couple of weeks ago when I tried a WN pocket on him as pull-up and forgot to point it down too... :hohoho:

yep, little boys are just totally different to girls when it comes to sorting out their nappy! lol :D I hardly ever had leaks with Abigail, but Benjamin has not only been a heavy wetter from the start, but a tummy sleeper too! Not always sure what goes wrong - think it's just that he's a boy, as I usually *always* try to make sure he's pointing in the right direction - I actually got professional training in nappies as I worked in a nursing home for a couple of years before I got married! LOL And we were taught to always make sure they were situated properly so they didn't end up in the dining room with a wet waist! But occasionally with my little boy, no matter how careful I am, I end up with a bit of wet clothes.

Oh yes, one of the best pieces of nappy advice I've been given is to make sure it's pointing straight down. Connor was always a bit of a power-wee-er and veering off just a smidgen to the side can make all the difference!
