Another GAD question

I have one GAD, we used it today. Not impressed at all! It totally leaked and the hemp insert was sopping wet! He only wore it for *maybe* an hour! The hemp insert seems really thin. What do you GAD lovers use as inserts?

I will give it another try, but I was pretty bummed out

Re: Another GAD question

Was its used?? You may need to strip it. I got a bunch of GADs from a mama here and they are our favs. In fact, we tried one at night and it held for about 7 hrs. before I had to change him. I have the hemp inserts and microfiber ones...the GAD inserts, that is. I haven't had 1 leaking issue with ours yet. How is the fit? Where did it leak from??

Re: Another GAD question

Yes, it was used. I did my whole wash routine twice in a row to make sure it was extra clean. The fit was great! And I was so excited because they are so trim! Maybe I do need to strip it *sigh* I don't wanna LOL I think maybe I will try a MF towel and see if that helps. Maybe use it with the hemp and go from there. I think my DS is becoming a super soaker!

Re: Another GAD question

Another question is, was it solid PUL or print? All of mine are solid PUL. You could try the hemp insert wrapped in a microfiber towel and see how it holds up. If you still have leaking, you might try stripping it.

Re: Another GAD question

I just got a new one and had the same issue except with a GAD microfiber insert. It really got wet fast. I washed it 2 times in hot and then cooked in the dryer I'll let you know. My first GAD (a print) has never leaked. This is a solid PUL?????

Re: Another GAD question

The GAD insert seems flimsy to me too. We usually wrap it in a MF towel & it holds ds pretty well. Don't think I have ever used it by itself after the first time Most inserts fit pretty well in the GAD we have. A MOE MF one would probably do the trick too. HTH!
