Diaper Blowouts

These diaper blowouts are driving me insane!  They happen at least 5 times a week, and they ruin her clothes.  We heard that going up a size would help, and we thought she might be ready for a bigger size anyway, so we tried a size 2 (which starts at 12 pounds….she’s only 11.5 right now).  Well, they seemed fine for about 6 days, and then tonight the diaper totally failed.  Ahhh!  So frustrating.  We’ve tried different sizes, different brands, different ways of tightening them, and nothing seems to help.

The main problem, and what is probably ultimately leading up to these blowouts, is that she doesn’t seem to poop regularly throughout the day.  She saves them up for the evening–between 4 and 7 every night.  So when it comes, it’s full force.  We don’t think anything is wrong with her because she still has at least 4 bms a day.  It’s just that the evening ones are huge.  Blech.

Totally Toddler spray helps get some of the stains out, but it doesn’t get everything.  Oh well.  At least you don’t see the back side in pictures.  I just hate having stains on her clothes….especially if we have another girl someday.

Haha, sorry for the gross post.  This topic has been bothering me for a long time now.  I want to figure out how to make this stop.  Otherwise, we are in for a long, hard time until potty training.
