Just got 20 new Kawaiis- what do i need to know- prepping and doubling

How is best to prep them?
do i need to use both soakers?
is it best to put soakers in the pocket or just lay in the shell?
Any leak issue?

Just wash them once and you are good The inserts/soakers need to go inside the pocket. There is no stay dry material on the top of them so they will pull the moisture out of baby's skin. It could cause a rash or irritation. HTH!

Oh, my son only needed 1 insert while I was using them. He is not a really heavy wetter though. Start with one and move up from there

No need to prep, just one quick wash - stuff the inserts inside and you're good to go I'd use 1 insert on a smaller baby, both on a toddler or heavy wetter.

I have about 12 of these, and I have to use both inserts for my 2 1/2 year old. but sometimes I can go with just one during the day for a short time. For my 7 week old I use just one insert also. I like these dipes, they seem to hold up pretty well and have been using them for about 6 months in a small rotation.
