Re: Explain wicking please

Its when wetness goes from one place to another... like if you dip the corner of a paper towel in water and the water travels up the paper towel. It can be a good thing, like when microfleece wicks wetness through to the absorbant material behind it while keeping your baby feeling dry. Or it can be a bad thing, like when the wetness wicks from the diaper to your baby's clothes. You have to read the context to figure out if it's a good wicking or a bad one. HTH!

I think it means leaking thru? Im new so I could be wrong, lol.

My HH have slight wicking up at the waist of DD's diaper in the morning but I only know because I can SEE the yellowish wicking, however her skin doesnt feel wet.
