Hello!
I was wondering if anyone can recommend a diaper that doesn't allow it's contents to seep through. I have tried Pampers (swaddlers, I think) and found that the outside of the diaper would feel wet. I don't mean leakage, I mean the outside of the diaper feels damp. We have no problems with Target diapers for years, but they aren't that good for absorbency (diaper rashes).
Thanks!

Usually if the diaper starts leaking, it helps to go to the next bigger size.

Unfortunately we can`t avoid such situation. I haven`t found leak-proof diapers yet , so I learned to change them quickly in the middle of the night. My son does not even notices, tho.

^^ This. Whenever I started to notice the diapers leaking, it meant it was time to move up to the next size. I used Pampers Swaddlers as well. I know a lot of people who had trouble with Pampers did have good luck with Huggies, though.

Diapers are kind of like bottles. Sometimes you have to go through some trial and error before finding the brand that works best for you.

My son was a heavy wetter at night, and we had to buy those Huggies overnights diapers. They worked great.

I also agree that sizing up may help.

This is spot on.

Overnight diapers were a game changer for us too. It's not a marketing gimmick. The sleep you get and the baby's dryness is priceless.

Thanks for the responses. I notice everyone is saying "leak" but I'm really talking about dampness that just comes through the cover since the diapers are not fully waterproof. Would that also be solved by larger sizing? We solved it by switching to a more plastic-y diaper (Target), but they are not as good at keeping moisture away from the baby's skin, so I'm looking to change.

In my experience, any feeling of wetness is due to the size and volume of the diaper not being large enough and was solved by me getting the next size up. Try getting the smallest package of the next size up and use a few and see how it goes. Or perhaps start using a diaper cover.

Maybe you can try one of the other Pampers products. Cruisers instead of swaddlers?

Huggies always worked for me. I hated pampers and always wishes I could buy the "cheap" off-brand diapers but they leaked too much to make it worth it too. Try Huggies.
