Usually when they start leaking through is the telltale sign.
If you need to go up a size, the stores usually let you exchange for the next size without any problems.

like leaking how? Leaking each time a diaper is on? cuz Aly will occasionally leak if the tabs aren't pulled tight on the sides and she is laying on her side, but that's it. It's only happened twice to us!

As long as the diaper's on correctly, leaking after wearing the diaper for a short amount of time and multiple times.
I go up a size once Christopher starts leaking through his diapers and clothing and he does it a few times over the course of a few days.

For the chunky thigh babies - when the leg holes seem to tight.

Otherwise I agree, when they leak from the bottom - not the top.

ok...cuz she had leaked through the top on the side while laying on her side.

She always seems to have the marks on her legs from the leg holes though. She's got chunky upper thighs abut the rest of her is long and lean.

Get a small package ( you're eventually going to use them anyway). Try them out, if she seems more comfortable, go with them. You can try to return the diapers you got or donate them.

You can also go by weight. It's on the package. If she's at the upper end of the weight for that diaper, it's probably time to change.

eta. Size 1-2 is more like a 1.5, so going up a size is not size 3, but size 2.

Miranda never leaked and doesn't have chunky thighs but she does get those red marks around her thighs so when that happens I know they're too small. There's always a little mark but when its really noticable I go up a size. We're finishing up the last of our 1-2 Baby Dry (which I hate) then its onto the Size 2 swaddlers.

I agree. and the leaks will be frequent - so you know it is just not that you didn't tighten the diaper.

Although my baby has very chunky thighs so he gets red all the time but when they get tighter - it is even redder.

I have Zachary in the size 2 pampers swaddlers, there really isn't much of a difference from the 1-2 but its enough to make a difference.

I've never had leaking problems with Jack, so I just go by the weight on the packages.
