Why am I getting leaks on his tummy?

Postby hermya » Tue Aug 16, 2011 9:47 am

Pretty much all my nappies seem to be doing this at the moment. He's a tummy/side sleeper and it seems to only happen when he naps.

What can I do? We use pockets, mainly tots bots and BG and the odd smartipants.

Thanks

with the smartipants make sure the insert is tucked well into the sleeve at the front, it doesn't matter if it sticks out a little at the back, the elastic will hold it in.

With all of them you'll just need to add some boosting. You could use the newborn BG insert, fold it in half and stuff it into the front of the pocket. We have to do this for out DD as she sleeps on her tummy.

The only thing that springs to mind is if his "bits" are pointing up :giggle: or that you aren't putting the nappies tight enough, if he sticks his bottom in the air or something it might be pushing the nappy away from his body and allowing the leaks IYKWIM.

This.
Make sure his willy is pointing down and try adding a booster to the wet zone at the front x
