Alva baby diapers leaking

I bought a large amount of these to fill in my stash ...but now I think I royally screwed up...they are leaking at the legs through the pul...is there any hope? Or should I just cut my loses FSOT them as a lot or is that a bad idea? I could FFS them I guess. Ugh. I feel like I just wasted money!

That's why I am so scared to buy cheap diapers! I would put them on fsot as a lot. They'll sell. Sell for exactly what you paid,

Did you run them through the dryer?
If you do resell, make sure you mention that they are leaking through the pul on the legs.

Yes I dry all my diapers...they are actual green bees brand and Alvas...Basicly the same.

When you turn the pocket inside out, is there any sign of delamination? Could it be compression leaks with microfiber and a onesie/pants? Or, if using natural fiber inserts, are they fully prepped? If not, I would add some absorbency.

If all fails, I'd email Alva, advising the pockets are leaking. You may have received a bad batch & they may replace them.
