Leakage! Major Leakage!

Since Dave and I have been married we have never gone grocery shopping without the other. On our last trip to the store we needed to buy diapers. I proceeded to put size 4 diapers on our cart when Dave noticed the size he was concerned. He looked at the recommended weight on the size 3 and 4. Mia weighs 22 pounds which is at the higher end of the size 3 and the lower end of size 4. Being the frugal guy that he is he figured that we could buy the size 3 and get more diapers for the price. I foolishly agreed. The first couple of weeks of using the diapers was fine. Mia was constipated and wasn't having her regular squashy poops (I know, TMI). Now that she is regular we have had exploding diapers after another. Last night was the final straw. I reached over Mia during the night and felt moisture! The diaper had leaked pee all over her and the bed! So, I had to wake her up to change her diaper, clothes and bedding. I don't remember Aleecia having so many leaky/exploding diapers as a baby. So, now I have a bunch of size 3 diapers and need size 4 but I can't buy any until I have used all of the size 3 diapers. I can't just waste them. What to do, what to do?

Ill buy them and you can go get bigger ones. Neve wears 3's and I have plenty but she will be in that size forever. Love the instructions.

oh I am with you on this poop dilema! We have been using pampers swaddlers with Paislee. They have been great until now. Even if I change her within seconds, it is everywhere. We tried huggies and they are worse! AAAAAH! its the hardest when you're in public and you can see yellow peeking through their clothes. I don't know what to do. I agree, getting the bang for your buck is as nearly as important as not having to deal with poopy clothes all the time! When clothes get ruined anyway, you lose money that way too!! Yucky messes... luckily the people who make them are so dang cute!
