Thank God!! I finally figured it out!!

Why I have been having so much trouble with my two heavy wetters (and what I wish I would have known when I started CDing):

Fit:
Since I was new to cloth diapers, I wasn't sure what a good "fit" was. I have been using Meds on Camille and she is really a Petite Large, or Long Medium. Thank-you Ruth (from Snap-Ez) for helping me figure this out. Since switching Camille is almost leak free.

Also if you have a heavy wetter, a thick crotch in a diaper is a must. No trim diapers, just full coverage (like granny panties)

Absorbancy:
I think all people new to cloth should do extensive reading on the different kind of material and how absorbant each is before buying there first diaper. I thought 1 MF insert was all I should put in pockets for the longest, no wonder my pockets were wicking. Also all hemp was not created equal, there are different kinds and absorbancies.

Preping
I remember being so confused with FBs stopped working for us all of a sudden. Looking back now, I know it was because I washed my new pocket change hemp inserts with the rest of my laundry before they were properly preped. I had a major case of build-up (sorry to whoever bought those from me)

Wow, I am learning so much and still have so much more to learn. Wool, here I come!

Yey! I remember when you were selling off your entire stash and giving up. Glad to see you've stuck it out and solved the problem(s).

Thanks, everyone, I am SOOO excited and now that I know what size she really is, I have been looking at some different kinds of dipes (rubs hands together)
