Had my first leak ... UGH! BG 4.0 woes.

Boston is not what I would consider a heavy wetter and I am not what I would consider a pocket girl. But I have 5 new BG 4.0s in Artist Series prints and today was hectic so that's what I packed for him. I changed him just before his nap and laid him down in a double stuffed (w/ Thirsties hemp) pocket and 20 minutes into his nap he was screaming. He was SOAKED...all down the inside of his jammies.

He was in FT cloth with me when his parents went away 2 weeks ago and slept everynight for 11-12 hours in a double stuffed Sunbaby with no issues.

Now please tell me how a $4.00 pocket that is pretty well loved could outshine a brand new $20 pocket.

I was waiting on an Albert and a Lovelace and one more Retail Therapy but I think I will cancel those orders.

Weird, and the inserts were soaked? Or did it leak through the PUL??

That sucks!

That is unusual. Possible problems:
-Inserts soaked
-Suedecloth repelling
-Tummy sleeper with gun pointing upward?

It was like he leaked down one leg. One Jammie leg was dry. One was soaked. But he was on the appropriate rise with a good fit around the leg.

His junk was pointed down. I can't imagine they are repelling. I just washed them yesterday.

We've overstuffed 4.0s and had leaks due to gaps in the leg.

Two Thirsties hemp are trimmer than microfiber. Maybe it didn't absorb fast enough?

But never had issues with the inserts before.

Re: Had my first leak ... UGH! BG 4.0 woes.

My LO is leaking out of his BG 4.0s right now too--just like you describe. I don't think they're repelling b/c the inserts are really wet--but only in the front. I think he's just become a "rapid" wetter now that he's gotten older (he's almost 1). My suspicion is that he's letting more go at once and it's not soaking through the liner quickly enough before it runs out the legs. I'm trying to sort through which fitted/prefold/cover options to try, in the hopes that something will absorb more and more quickly.

"Rapid" wetter is what I was thinking too, not those exact words but when I read this response it is exactly what was I was going to say. I also think hemp doesn't absorb as fast. I do use hemp in my pockets for overnight, but I always put cotton on top so that is the first thing that the pee is absorbed by. Hemp is behind all of it soaking up the excess the cotton can't grab.

But you also said you haven't had issues with the inserts before. This is very weird!

You're obviously a very experienced CDer so I wouldn't suspect fit or a bad wash routine to be an issue.

I have heard that the artist series leaks. This was talked about not that long ago. I thought it was so strange but I have been using BG 4.0's. Last night I had my ds in an artist and it leaked. First time ever. How could that be?

I don't know but I love my artist series. I destashed pretty much all of my PUL and then turned right around and bought the artist series. I'd wanted them for a long time and love the boyish boldness of the prints. Guess just not nap worthy. I'll be sure to pack some GMs for naptime next time.

Yeah, I don't think fit was the issue. I was actually really tickled with how well they fit him. He's long-waisted and on the last rise snap on most diapers so to see how well the middle snap fit him, with room to grow was awesome.

The insert wasn't super saturated. I mean, he was wet for sure but nothing like the nighttime diapers were.

And I did toss them in the dryer after I washed them to seal the PUL. I usually hang dry my wetbags and Sunbabies but I dried these to make sure there weren't any needle marks in the PUL.
