Who was paying attention to the accident record yesterday? Did you lose track of all the leaks? We are having some growing pains as Trixie transitions from size 3 to size 4 diapers. She’s currently stuck in between stages and it’s making life just that much more exciting. How exciting? Well, yesterday we had three full-fledged diaper leaks and one poop in the bathtub. (The bath incident isn’t related to the diaper sizes — just bad luck.)
We normally use generic diapers. But now, at about 20.5 lbs, Trixie seems too big for the number 3’s and she’s swimming in the 4’s. So we’ve been trying some name-brand diapers because they are a little more flexible and fitted. The Pampers size 3’s still works great. The Huggies size 3’s are responsible for yesterday’s devastating diaper failure cascade.
To be honest, I don’t really blame the manufacturer. There’s no way one size diaper can really fit all kids in the 16-28 lbs range. It would be like me buying a pair of pants size 23 – 40 1/2.
