diapers not absorbing - help!

I am having the hardest time with my pocket diapers (my fitteds seem okay??) - it's like instead of the pee soaking through the into the insert, it is just dripping right out (usually all over me). I've stripped them, soaked them, rinsed over and over again, and nothing seems to be helping. Any advice? It also seems like maybe they are retaining some smell too, maybe I need to switch to a different detergent/soap? I've been using Rock n Green.

Re: diapers not absorbing - help!

How old is your baby? I found that pockets didn't work for dd until she got a bit fatter. I remember at 3 mos they still leaked out the side often. For pockets to work the pee has to get absorbed down the middle by the soaker but if the diaper isn't tight against their bum then it rolls to the side where there is no soaker. That's why your fitteds work - soaker everywhere!!
