Major night time stink!!!

Ok so Ciencia is a major heavy wetter but we have 3 diapers that combined with her longies or prowraps work really well to keep her from getting soaked at night. Well the past few weeks when I've changed her first thing in the morning, the smell has been enough to make you want to walk right back out of the room!!

I don't know what is going on or how to stop it. I'm constantly trying to strip her diapers but I'm not seeing suds at all and I've recently tried switching up our wash routine and it just isn't working. I've even CRANKED the hot water heater as high as it would go during diaper washing. About 3 weeks ago, I could go 3 days in between washings but now the stench is so bad from that morning diaper that we are washing diapers almost everyday.


HELP!!!!!

What is the smell? Ammonia?
What diapers are you using overnight?
Hemp?

Re: Major night time stink!!!

i would toss a bit of bleach into the wash. HOT HOT water and about an 1/8 of a cup then RINSE RINSE RINSE!!! you need to kill the yuckys living in the diapers.

(let the machine fill 1st, add bleach THEN add the diapers) i promise you wont ruin the diapers! i've done it now about 3x to Hyena (clothmo, BBLs etc) diapers and you cant even tell.

I don't even know how to describe it. It's not an amonia type smell. Some mornings I swear she has filled her britches but they end up being just wet.

For night time diapers we have 3 that we use:
swaddlebees organic velour fitted
lukes drawers fitted (I think it's velour inner)
cuddlebuns (This one's velour inner but not sure what the soaker is)

I'll give the bleach a try.
