Leaking HH

Yet another leaking question I have been using a different insert for my HH since I got them and just recently ordered the HH stuffins for them. Since I've gotten them they've been leaking really badly out the sides. They're the same size as the dipes but its almost like they're too thin. Am I doing something wrong?? Help mommas...I'm giving them one more week before I sell them and buy my other trusted insterts.

Re: Leaking HH

have you creped the stuffins? They take some prepping before becoming greatly absorbent. Is the stuffin wet at all? if not it could be a repelling problem.

Re: Leaking HH

sounds like the stuffins need to be prepped more.

What is creped??
I washed them 3 times on hot before use...but didn't let them dry inbetween. (Are youu supposed to?)
They are getting wet but only half of it...the back top half is always dry.
So..should I wash them a few more times or is there another way to prep?

I refuse to buy any more HH because of this.

Re: Leaking HH

You need to wash and then dry on hot about 3 times before first use...and you really need about 5-8 cycles before they are at peak absorbancy.

I think HHs prints are great...my ds can take a three hour nap in a print if I have a stuffin in there...I guess he's just not that heavy of a wetter!

Yeah, if it's a print, it will wick around the sides no matter what you are using inside. Heavy wetters usually just can't do the fun prints w/Happy Heinys.
