Re: How to tell when pocket dipes are wet?

When I had pockets, I'd just touch the insert to see if it was damp.

Re: How to tell when pocket dipes are wet?

I feel the outside of the diaper and if the insert is wet, I can feel it kind of thick and bunchy. Feeling for the damp insert doesn't really work for us because we use hemp and it will get really soaked in the front but won't really be wet towards the back.

My Mood:
I stick my finger in at the leg. If it's wet, it will feel kind of humid. If it's poopy, I get poop on my finger, but since that means I'm about to change a diaper and wash my hands anyway, it doesn't bug me much. Past the EBF stage I do a sniff test first, though!

I just change every 2 hours at least, sometimes more often!
