i don't want to quit, but......

i can not take the stink anymore! for the past 2 months i have been battling the stench from my inserts. i have washed just them , stripped, put them in HOT HOT water. i have washed them over and over, made sure they were super dry in dryer. but the ammonia smell is just there! i don't know if it is b/c my DD's pee may have changed now that she is bigger, drinking milk, juice, and so on. but i as soon as i pick her up it just stinks. i have been doing sposies last few days and went back to cloth today b/c i don't wanna give it up. But, it just smells so bad. any suggestions?

Edit: I use hemp inserts. right now i am using arm and hammer pure essentials. before this i was using purex free and clear

Prefolds. Seriously though. I was using all prefolds for about three months and just last week started using pockets with microfiber inserts and my diaper pail is overwhelming when I open it. The only thing I can attribute it to is the microfiber and pockets because before using them again the only thing in there were prefolds and flannel cloth wipes.

Prefolds girl, prefolds.

Sooo, Emily? Do you really recommend pf's?

I, too, think that poly holds the stink much worse than pf's. That's what we use too.
