Do all print AIOs leak/wick?

I have only bought solid AIOs for fear of wicking, but now I keep being tempted by prints since it is summer and ds is usually just in a diaper anyway. I only have AIOs, so if anyone knows of any that dont wick as a print that would be soooo great!!

Talking Re: Do all print AIOs leak/wick?

I have been told and from using my own, mine do not wick/leak. They might tend to wick after prolonged use(overnight etc) but I spray mine with water repellent For clarification, ones I sell, not just my personal stash.

Re: Do all print AIOs leak/wick?

there are some tht wic more than others i think. I am not a fan of any sreged AIO. These leak alot for me,whether they are print or solid.
Personally. most of my prints are poly, which is what the solids are made of.
I have never had anyone complain aobut wicking though on any of my diapers. I do not spray my PUL though, I have heard some babies are sensitive, but i tell the mamas who buy my cotton prints they may want to spray it when they get it, if it wicks..

Re: Do all print AIOs leak/wick?

Mine don't wick either. I have printed pul and I with my dress sets, they are printed over a hidden pul inner. I pretreat all of my fabric though so that they do not wick or leak. For the cotton over hidden pul, I pretreat the cotton 2 times and on both sides (curing after each application).

I haven't noticed a difference between solid PUL and prints, or ones with a hidden PUL layer. All diapers will wick if they are left on too long.
