if you use a JB insert with your fb please help

OK I just got my Joey bunz inserts in the mail today for my FB. I am a little confused. These aren't very wide and when I put them in the diaper they don't extend to the entire width of the diaper. Am I doing something wrong? How do you prevent leaks? Are you using the Jb exclusively or are you stuffing it with something else?? I bought these on the reccomendation of a few peopel but I don't see how they are going to work.
Thanks!

Not sure with a new born how I'd use them, but for a 1 year old I use a thin microfiber topper or a microfiber towel (bulky for a new born) Wash them alone at least 3 times with hot water and a hot dryer.

If you don't love them now, you will later when your baby is wetting heavier. I don't ever have luck using them alone. They are too trim.

We are using them now for our 6 week old. My smalls and medium jbs fit nicely in my small fbs. I use one if it is day time, but he is a heavy wetter so I use 2 in his night time diapers. Working great so far

We use 3 at night, size small in our med fb. I need to get med JB, but I am too cheap and we never have leaks.

I never did well with them just by themself. However, I love using one under a MOE, Cotton Babies, or other microfiber insert during the day or night. That usually holds up for us very well.

Re: if you use a JB insert with your fb please help

yeah I'm pretty bummed. I bought medium JBs to use with all my small FBs thinking I could keep using them when we went to medium and large FBs but the Medium JBs only work for us in small FBs. They just aren't wide enough to prevent leaks in my medium FBs. I'm hating FBs more and more everyday. Thankgoodness for my good ole BGs!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I only own Medium Joey Bunz. Its all we've ever owned.

I have used them in Small, Med, and large FB, as well as PT now.

they always fit us fine, and never never a leak anytime!

For nightime, we do 2 joey bunz with a microfiber insert on top of it. so its nice and kushie next to the baby's bum, but there's plenty of absorbency under it.

try the tiny microfiber insert made to go in them...

are you using XS or Smalls?? MOE makes inserts for each size

I always wrap my hemp inserts (Joeybunz) in microfiber towels. It is squishy and helps prevent leaks.

You shouldn't have any leaks using it alone either, the PUL outer is waterproof.
