Newborn boy wetting through diapers onto clothes every time. — The Bump
Babies: 0 - 3 Months

Newborn boy wetting through diapers onto clothes every time.

My 6 day old is soaking through his clothes almost every time he pees.  Not sure if it is the diaper, or if Im not putting it on tight oenough or if he is just drinking too much...any advice?  He goes through like 5 outfit changes a day.

  • What kind of diapers are you using?  We had the same problem with our little boy when we were using Pampers Sensitive diapers (my friend did too).  We switched to Pampers Swaddlers and Dry Max and it doesn't happen anymore.

    GL! 


  • Are you making sure you fold the "ruffles" out on the sides?

  • Make sure when you close the diaper his weewee is pointed down.  That solved it for me

  • Are you making sure his penis is pointing down? That they're the right size? Doubling up on diapers at night works in a pinch.
  • Did you have him circ'd?  If you did are you still putting Vaseline on it?  If you are that can make the diapers not absorb the urine.

  • Oh gosh, the amount of peeing out of DS's diaper the first few weeks was ridiculous!  It gets better as they grow into the diapers better, but here's what worked for us (for the most part - he happened to pee of his diaper today at 7 weeks old)

    DH swears by pointing his penis down before you secure the diaper, so we do it every time. 

    We also found that he rarely peed out of the seventh generation free and clear diapers. Huggies and pampers both sucked.

    My MIL suggested putting the diaper on him backwards, though we didnt try it though, due to his belly button stump.

    Like most things, it gets better with time!  Good luck!

  • We had issues with this when DS wore Huggies and Pampers Swaddlers worked much better. Once he was in size ones, the Huggies worked fine. Not sure what the deal was in the newborn size.

  • I didnt even think of pointing his penis down.  Actually Ive been avoiding touching it at all since he was circumsized.  They said not to put any vaseline etc on it.  I will def try pointing it down and making sure the diaper is on correctly!

  • Always point his penis down, should fix your problem

  • We had the same exact issue and it turns out I wasn't pointing his weenie down and it was getting all over the place (mainly up his back or through the sides). After pointing it down we've had no more accidents.

  • Just have to laugh at this thought I had when reading these posts... it's amazing how much we moms learn about the penis when we have a baby boy!  :)

    This, and make sure that the back of the diaper is not rolled down. I noticed after I would change him sometimes the back would roll down when I would pull his onesie back down then had the problem of it leaking up the back of the diaper.
