Leaks, ugh

We had been going along brilliantly, and then all of a sudden EVERYTHING started to leak. While we were with my cloth-sceptical family of course .

The soakers are wet through, but not SOAKING soaking, not dripping wet, if you know what I mean. We have BGEs, Peachy Green, Grasshopper AIOs. I've just bought some hemp boosters but they're not working very well yet.

My daughter is 14 months old, 20 lbs.

Have I got a repelling problem or a racehorse for a baby?

Re: Leaks, ugh

If the entire diaper front and back is saturated, than you might need to add absorbency. If the diapers aren't completely saturated you could try stripping them from any detergent build up. I usually just run several hot water cycles without detergent to strip, but there are a few different ways to do it.

Re: Leaks, ugh

sounds like your little one is going into a heavy wetting phase, I would add more absorbent (if you use microfiber, I suggest pairing with hemp or bamboo and put the hemp/bamboo item further away from baby so that the microfiber items absorbs first but then the bamboo or hemp helps keep it from going out the diaper)
