So..should I wash them a few more times or is there another way to prep?
wash and dry them on hot a couple more times and you should be good with them. as far as the wetting only on one end, it maybe your child or it may not be prepped enough. you could try adding an extra oval to that area of the diaper that is getting wet the most. or you could wrap a microfiber towel around the stuffin.

i have a heavy wetter and i never had a problem with HH prints. i had to change more often (every one to two pees) but i have no problem with that. we didn't really wear them out and about anyway.

Re: Leaking HH

I've been warned about the HH. If you look at the seams around the edges and compare them to a FB or BG, it's pretty apparent why they leak. It's called "capillary action" aka "wicking". The pee travels along the fibers of the fleece liner (kind of like when you put a paper towel over a puddle). Since the HH inner fleece bunches more to the outside of the dipe (whereas there's more PUL on the legs in other dipes), this can happen more often.

Re: Leaking HH

I thought I was putting them on wrong (because of the fleece being on the outside around the legs) I always try tucking them in.

Re: Leaking HH

I use HH prints for my heavy wetter. I use 1 stuffin, (washed and dried at least 3 times) and 1 microfiber insert. That seems to do the trick. She leaks if I only use a stuffin and oval.

Good luck!
