Leaking Fuzzi Bunz

Recently my Fuzzi Bunz have started leaking. Could I be doing something wrong. I bought them new in December. I have been washing them per instructions on the tag and line drying. I dont leave the ds in a dipe for over two hours. Also it seems like the inserts arent fitting in the FB like they used to. I understand that this could be the cause of the leaking, but why would they not fit right anymore? They (the inserts) seem smaller than they used to. I just thought I may have done something to cause the leaking. Any suggestions as to what might be happening.

I would throw those diapers into the dryer and dry them on medium heat. I know the instructions say not to, but the PUL outer material needs high heat on occasion to reseal itself. That could be the cause of your leaking. Are the leaking from around the thighs? or straight through the diaper? as far as the inserts go, i'm not sure about them shrinking! I've never had that happen to me. HTH!

I found if the legs aren't snapped up tightly.... (ie gapping) pee will run out the leg holes... Since you bought them new I would contact FB I heard they have good customer service and will more than likely replace them.

GL!

Re: Leaking Fuzzi Bunz

where are they leaking? is it possible you have buildup? what exactly is your wash routine? what inserts are you using? how wet are the inserts when you change your DCs dipe?

PS throw the dipes in the dryer. you need the high heat to seal your PUL.

Re: Leaking Fuzzi Bunz

I am going to throw them in the dryer right now! How often should I be doing that? And they are leaking from around the legs. It's almost like the diaper has streched out and maybe that is why it seems like the inserts are smaller/not fitting right?

Maybe your elastic is going? I am not sure, but I always throw mine in the dryer because every time I have line dried they leaked!

How can I tell if they have buildup? I wash with Allens, I do a cold soak and then wash them on hot/cold and line dry. I am not sure what type of inserts they are, they came with the FBs from MED. Do they have a signature insert? They are leaking from around the legs and the inserts are wet, not soaked, when I change him. I dont let him go over two hours in a diaper. It must be a dryer thing because I have not done that yet and was not aware of the sealing of the PUL. Oh and BTW I just want to say that MED is awesome and in no way do I hold them responsible for my leaking problem. In fact I am about to order another diaper from them TONIGHT!
