Re: Plastic cover over pocket diaper?

I think adding a hemp insert under the microfiber should help.

I think I would ditch all the microfiber inserts and switch to cotton with hemp doublers. During the day you can stuff with prefolds or flats and then something like Flip organic for nights. It just sounds like compression leaks which we always got with microfiber.

Re: Plastic cover over pocket diaper?

I agree with the other PPs, adding some absorbency should help However, if you want to try a cover as well, I recommend a fleece or wool cover. Some mamas use a fleece or wool soaker over the pocket diaper as added protection, especially if your LO has issues with wicking at the waist and legs. I think they do this more overnight than as a regular daytime solution. Fleece or wool will breathe a little more, too, which is helpful since you're essentially adding a second cover.

I have a 7 month old and he is a super heavy wetter. During the day two microfibers work or one with a hemp insert to absorb some of the wetness. At night, it's a totally different story because he sleep 12 hours. I use a premium prefold and wrap it around a microfiber insert and put a hemp underneath. When that stops working I will put a hemp inside the prefold an ditch microfiber entirely.
