WWYD....Leaking Dipe?

Ok, so one of the diapers I bought recently off the FSOT leaks. I mean, leaks. Even if the inserts is only a little wet, her bum is soaked. I think maybe the PUL is not working? IDK...It's a Happy Heiny's Print. Does the fabric need to be re-waterproofed? I'm a little upset I wasn't told about the poor state of it's waterproof-ness before purchasing it, but what can I do about it now that I've got it? Has anyone else had this problem? Suggestions?

I don't have an answer, but have had the same problem. I would love to know how to fix these dipes.

Re: WWYD....Leaking Dipe?

Maybe you could try a waterproofing spray that you find at a camping store. I have never done that, but I am pretty sure I have seen other mamas post about this before. I have used it on my blankets for my horses when they start to leak and it has always worked. Hopefully someone here will have an idea. Sorry I'm not much help, but good luck!

Re: WWYD....Leaking Dipe?

don't know about the waterproofing spray but from what i've heard the print HH need to be changed much quicker than the solids (not to say you aren't changing baby often enough, just trying to "think outloud" here). are you sure that the fleece isn't repelling? do you have other HH that do not have this problem?

I'm pretty sure the fleece isn't repelling, although I'm not sure what would happen if it was...The insert appears to be wet, and I don't have any other dipes repelling, and they're all washed/dried the same. The PUL on the inside looks like it has little bubbles in it?

then i would bet that it is just the dipe. personally i would send the seller a PM and explain what is going on - ask to send it back for a refund or a partial refund, etc.
