Nicholas must be growing. Once you get past the 'blow-out' stage, then it's about a year till you get to the 'full-boat' stage.

My opinion: nothing will stop a leak through when the bladder can hold Saylorville Lake. Just have an extra set of clothes on hand at all times.

Good news: Potty training's just down the road...


Those Huggies with Winnie the Pooh on them have served us well with Emily.


The main reason you have a problem with leaky diapers is that you have a son and not a daughter. Having tried with one of each, I can tell you that leaky diapers are much more common with boys.

Regarding Luvs, I was about to suggest this as a reply to your earlier post on diapers. For us, I found that Luvs leaked the least. They were also a bit cheaper than the Pampers and Huggies. You can avoid having the tabs stick to the baby's skin if you remember to fold the tab back on itself as soon as you loosen it from the diaper.

Good luck :)

Smart aleck.


I liked the method, passed on from mother to daughter, used in the villages of India. Every time the baby is picked up, he is aimed out a door or a window. Sometime he is picked up and aimed for the just-in-case purpose because it has been a while since he drained the sumps.

Since babies are carried and watched very closely, the little grunting noises and funny faces heralding an evacuation of solids get immediate attention from an adult or an older sibling and the infant is promptly deposited on a cloth (when very he is very small) or held over and assisted at the family's evacuation site. One day he toddles over there by himelf, and voila! potty trained.

Doesn't sound too practical for 21st century Iowa, does it?
