When should I increase diaper size?
A diaper should close easily without having to tug and pull at them. Also, consider the rise of the diaper. A properly fitting diaper should come just slightly below your little one’s belly button. If it’s fitting a little more like a low rise, it’s time to move on up!
Should I use a bigger diaper at night?
3. If Baby is Peeing Through Diapers, Use a Bigger Diaper at Night. Once your baby or toddler starts approaching the upper end of a diaper’s size limit, the leaks will probably start. If your little one is waking regularly because of a leaky diaper, consider moving up a size (at least at night).
When should you stop using newborn diapers?

How do you know if a nappy is too small?

- Red marks around the waist or thighs and signs of chafing.
- The nappy is soaking through.
Is it better for diapers to be too big or too small?
Bigger diapers are capable of handling more waste as they have more absorbent material. However, diapers may also leak because they are too big. Make sure that the diaper fits snugly around the waist and thighs by running your fingers around the edges and checking that there are no gaps.
