Q: Do you have tips to improve absorbency and prevent leaks?
Choosing the right diaper is key to improving absorbency and preventing leaks. The weight chart on the package is a good place to start, but you should also consider your baby's age, what she eats and drinks, and how much she moves around. If your child's close to the end of the weight range on the chart, she might need the next size now. Even babies within the weight range can outgrow the absorbency before they outgrow the fit. And for leaks at night, try the next size up for overnight use only.
Q: How can I prevent bowel movement leaks?
Bowel movement leakage is a very difficult situation. Because stool is not totally liquid, like urine, it doesn't get absorbed into the padding the same way urine does. With the right size, we're sure our diaper's absorbent padding, leg leak barriers, and snug fit will help keep your baby dry, day and night.
If your baby consistently has this experience, it might be time to move into the next size diaper for added absorbency and protection. Babies can outgrow the absorbency and protection level of a diaper before they outgrow the fit. The weight ranges on our packages overlap and are only meant to be guidelines. Other things to consider include:
- - Baby's age
- - Eating and drinking habits
- - Mobility
- - Stool consistency
- - Baby's build (for example, a slim child might fit into Size 3 but need the added protection of Size 4)
Q: How do I choose the right size diaper?
Just like you, babies like to wear things that fit just right. The weight ranges on our packages overlap and are only meant to be guidelines for fit. Choose a size that does not sag or gap, even as your baby crawls and plays. This will help prevent leaks.
Q: How many diapers of each size will my baby need?
There are a lot of factors that determine how many of each size diaper your baby will need. Each baby's weight, shape, size, and growth rate are unique. You'd be the best judge according to your baby's needs.
