Re: Plastic cover over pocket diaper?

Okay, I guess I'd do one of two things. First, strip your inserts and diaper shells to insure that you do not have buildup, and therefore repelling. If after you do that, and they seem more absorbent, I'd switch to a mainstream detergent.

If it's not buildup, then I'd invest in some hemp babies (or similar) doublers. Put a microfiber insert on top, and then hemp below. The MF will absorb the pee fast, but the hemp will hold a lot if that makes sense.

Hope this helps.
