Re: The one thing I hate about CDing...

This was me when DD was about 7 mos or so. She wicked or leaked almost all the time and I know people thought I was crazy for CDing. I too did the microfiber with hemp thing and although it worked, it got too bulky for us.

What has worked for us handsdown are BGs. I don't know if it is the CB insert, or the different fabric, but they only wick if the insert is absolutely saturated and compressed (she's sitting for a long while.)

One thing I learned once I figured out my DD's pee time (like mornings for your DD) is just to change her more often. It just became unrealistic to expect any diaper to hold her for more than an hour during her pee time.

Good luck!
