I want to CD but..

Every diaper I put DS in has some sort of issue

ALL my pockets have collected lint some how and leave lint in places I don't feel like digging lint out of but I can't leave it there
Plus they leave his little booty red.

My prefolds and flats and fitteds don't leave him red BUT leave him soaked and we go through them in under an hour each before he wets them again.

I have 2 pockets that are lint free and he goes good in those (HH organics).

I want to CD so badly but nothing works well for this child! CD experts help please!

I would tryy adding doublers to the diapers that already work. He could be sensitive to synthetics against his skin. It takes alittle work, but once you figure out what works it gets tons easier.

I put my doublers in the folds, but you can lay them on top too.

Personally, I don't have a brand to recommend, but hemp works well for us. The cotton flat/prefold absorbs fast and the hemp hold a lot.

Re: I want to CD but..

Hemp babies inserts from cotton babies are $3 each and work for us. I use them under the cotton in the bg organic and inside the bgos at the bottom with mf insert on top. I use econobum prefolds or recieving blankets in flats inside econobum covers. I have folded a mf insert or a hemp babies insert inside both prefold and flat and had no issues but the mf can not touch the skin or it causes issues.

Re: I want to CD but..

I am super new to this too and have some frustrating leaks! but I am having some good luck with Flips Organic inserts ... and Bottom Bumpers as long as I can get my little one to hold still so I can fit them just to my liking
