    Coles comfy bots are awesome for younger babies! Their sizing is really good and theyre cheaper. DS has always been a heavy wetter and only just started leaking out of them at 20 months. We now use Woolies homebrand (not woolies select) and we found them even better than the Coles ones so might be worth a try for your DS

    I'll give the Cole's ones a go . Didn't they get voted the best by mums in a magazine last year? Always check Percy is down LOL but being a little boy it does have a mind of its own! Not sure smaller would help, it seems thst the tabs don't overlap onto the nappy as it is as he is so solid. 7 weeks and he's in 00 singlets and some clothes. He seems to haveq very solid torso.

    Both my boys were big bubs each over 10lbs. Ds2 is 8 months old and I have found Babylove crawler size 6-11kg to be great for him. Huggies always leaked on my boys.

    I've had this trouble with my chubby lil DS. It seems these days nappies are all "slim-fit" but DS needed some shorter & wider.

    The only sposies that have worked for him is the Aldi's ones, although when we are at home he's in MCN's as they seem to fit him much better than any sposies we tried - and we tried them all!!

    If you dont live near an Aldi, i'd suggest you try cloth.

    My boy was big too 4.7 kilos.
    We used baby love but always used the bigger size.
    Now we use the Coles home bread, the white packet.

    We went thru this and it was just a phase for my ds. We go thru it occasionally with dd too. MCN's were the WORST. I swear By babylove nappies.

    we put my dd in huggies boys nappies a size bigger than normal. Worked a treat. As i said it was a phase and happenes here and there not all the time. Have you considered the nappy covers? try putting one over a nappy, they are waterproof. about $1 each from kmart.

    DS has always been a heavy wetter overnight. I use Coles comfy bots - 2 sizes bigger than what he should be in. Ive done this since he was a month old.

    ive been happy with the nappies, i just need to make sure that the waist is not tight (i leave it about an inch too loose) to allow for the nappy to swell. If I do it to tight they still leak up the sides.

    They never leak around the legs for me, always up the top of the nappy above the legs.
