The obvious things would be:

add more stuffing or change more frequently

I depends where it is leaking and under what circumstances I suppose

Over stuffing can make them leak out the sides sometimes...
Have you tried stripping them? Sometimes the fleece gets buildup and doesn't let the wee through...

Is it little leaks like wicking or is it flooding/pouring out the side?

How often do you change them and what do you stuff with?

Microfibre isn't great often as it can squish wee out easily and cause leaks...

What clothes does he have on over it and what do you stuff with?

Are they SS nappies or OS ones?
