A Bomb

This is why we use cloth diapers most of the time:


Yes, her disposable diaper exploded in the middle of the night. We only use disposables at night time because I THOUGHT they would be more absorbant. I am currently rethinking this decision and looking for a good overnight cloth diaper.
Those little crystal type balls are Sodium Polyacrylate. This chemical can cause skin irritations and severe allergic reactions including vomiting, staph infections, and fever.

Luckily, it seemed to bother me more than her!

We had that happen to us twice in 1 week with Hunter so we just went up to the next size and we've never had any troubles...and that boy pees TONS!!!! So, you might want to think about the next size up, even if she's not to the suggested weight yet.

Do you still do breathing treatments with either of your children? They think Kira has a form of RSV so we're starting breathing treatments today. We'll see how this goes.

I agree with Jen, Jet blew up once and we moved him up to the next size and never had a problem again either. I've never had the girls blow up anything, and they sleep between 11 and 12 hours a night. Miss Ella must have an amazing bladder!

Looks like she doesn't seem to mind, such a happy girl!

Oh no! G-man has had a bomb blow like that in the night once I think. We also moved up to the next size. Gross, isn't it?

I'm sorry that happened! Caitlyn had that happen 3 times with huggies, so we switched after she got a severe diaper rash. We took her 5 times to the doctor to figure it out-but it turned into a staph infection!!! It was horrible. So now we use cloth diapers during the day and Luvs at night.

oh wow!

hoping that moving to the next size up like everyone has suggested helps!

have you tried the gbaby diapers? for overnight i use them with an insert (fleece/hemp)that isnt made for them. i think that the insert is from polar babies.

good luck!!

Melissa said...

ok, that is just nasty! I've never had that happen, and I hope that it never does!

I agree, I would try the next size up.

That is an extreme diaper blow-out!

Christy said...

I have a solution - use Huggies overnight diapers in a size bigger than she actually wears. Works like a charm.

Hee hee. I'm not laughing. Yes I am. That happened to us too. With J, I used XL fuzzibunz stuffed with two automotive microfiber towels. It was ridiculously huge, but he was sleeping, not running a marathon. And it worked. :)

Oh man that is the worst!!!

We used to use Huggies too, but I found that somehow Pampers seems to hold more.

Fingers crossed for no more bombs!!

eewwwww!!!

'nuff said.

Oh no!! That's gross!

We use cloth too, and have used what throwslikeagirl suggests, the fuzzibunz with two inserts, but I also have a couple wool and fleece covers that wick wet away from their bums, so they stay really dry. They're awesome, and not too too bulky. One of them my mom actually knit for me, but they are easy to buy anywhere. Email me if you want more details - I actually have several and could totally mail you one :-)

never had much of a problem with our fuzzibunz leaking. although toward the end we had to go up to three inserts at night! That made for a pretty big diaper - LOL!

Wendi said...

That is the very reason potty training is a must!!!
EWWWWW!

This is precisely why I no longer use Huggies! I used to be a diaper snob, if you will, but I have found that the Parents Choice brand at Wal-Mart is my new favorite. My husband thinks I am crazy but they are cheaper and they work great..for us anyway. We have been using them for 4 months now and have not had ONE single leak or explosion!! It has been nice!

Hope this doesn't happen to you anymore!
