We've been PLing so I thought we're close to being done. We're close on daytime but not so much for ov. We recently went back to cloth and he loves being in them (in fact he says no to sposies when I tried to put them on last night) but he wakes up wet just about every morning so far. Ugh!!
I feel your pain. I find the stay-dry insert and a large fleece liner (I just cut up a fleece blanket to size) helps with that wet feeling. Maybe a large fleece soaker could help over the top of your pocket? It contains the wetness well. Our old standby was a 3-layer bamboo insert, trifolded thirsties hemp prefold, and the flip stay-dry insert in a Flip cover. I wish that still worked! It's amazing how much they can wet!
