So much for 12 hours of leakage protection.
For my son, Pampers 12-hour disposable diapers keep him and his outfits dry only some of the time and then only a few hours.
This is my second foray into the world of disposable diapers buying and I haven’t had that much luck.
My first attempt was with Wal-Mart’s brand. I returned them after having to change my son twice in the night and leaving him wet the rest of the time.
I told the customer service person at Wal-Mart that you obviously get what you pay for when you buy disposables.
Unfortunately, Pampers hasn’t been that great either. While my sister-in-law swears by them and said she has only changed my niece’s sheets about 15 times, I haven’t been so lucky.
Sometimes my son can go all night in one diaper, other times he is soaked - diaper, clothing, sheets and me - in a couple of hours.
Thinking perhaps I was not putting the diapers on correctly, I had my cousin-in-law give me the disposable diaper rules: 1) Point my son’s (and these were the words of a nurse in Ottawa) “junk” down and 2) pull out the outer layer for further wetness protection.
Both are done.
I know my friend, JA, is having the same diaper issues with her son and she, too, hasn’t found a diaper that will protect her little guy during the night.
Perhaps diapers are geared toward girls or were not designed for the heavy wetter.
