I must be doing something wrong.

Today we went out for the day. We left at 9am, baby Jen was in a clean wonderoo with both hemp wonderoos pieces snapped together. I kept checking and she was dry, then at 11am later she was soaked through (her dress missed it so I didn't need to change clothes)
I put her in a Magic All, kept checking and within two hours she soaked though again. SHe did this all day, I kept checking and she'd be dry as a bone, then next she was soaked. I went though 5 diapers in 7 hrs. Then we got home.
I have some fleece top doublers on order, are these going to even help? I'm wondering if I need to order some infant CPF's and line her diapers with something like that. This kid is peeing me out of house and home I wanted dipes with fleece so she felt dry, but heck I don't care anymore I just don't want her to leak, Winter is coming and if she leaks out of every diaper, we'll be in a dozen outfits a day.
She didn't drink constantly either, I was counting cups, she went through one cup of water with juice and almost one with plain water.
Do I sound desperate? I'm feeling like it.

she sounds like a super soaker, holds it until she needs to go then floods the diaper

Re: I must be doing something wrong.

Have you tried something other than hemp? Maybe a hemp on the bottom and a microfiber on top? (Hemp holds more, but microfiber absorbs faster!)

That'd be my suggestion. We don't have a super-peer here, so I'm not a ton of help, but that's what I'd try.

this is what my DD does, she's done it since she was tiny. she's usually good with 1 microfiber insert during the day at home, but if we go out it's usually 2 microfiber inserts. (the inserts are the blue microfiber towels trifolded, we got them at sam's club)

Re: I must be doing something wrong.

The Magic alls are microfiber layers beneath a fleece. I got them because they are so simple for when we are out and about. Arrgghhh I'll have to rething what I take out and about with us.
She managed to flood out of a Fuzzi Bunz yesterday (at home) it had a micro insert and a small hemp too, I thought it was me not paying attention, but this looks like a new trend for her.

Re: I must be doing something wrong.

How many times did you wash the hemp?? Hemp needs to be washed on HOT 3-4 timesd prior to use to be absorbant enough to use. And it sounds lieks he hols it and then opens the flood gates.

Re: I must be doing something wrong.

The hemp has been in use for about three weeks, and the small ones from yesterday I bought used, so they were already pre washed.
I hope this means we'll be potty learning soon, all the holding and flooding.
I sat her on the toilet this evening, she had no clue, poor kid, she just wanted to unravel the paper.
I hope the doublers get here soon, I think I'll have to use them in every diaper. I think I ordered 6 from Cottonbabies and 4 from wonderworks.
That should get me to town and back.

Re: I must be doing something wrong.

Maybe this is a silly question and maybe I missed it somewhere... but were her inserts saturated? If everything is leaking and you are using microfiber on top... I'm wondering if there is any repelling going on.

For a soaked through hemp pocket I'd expect that the inserts would be nearly dripping if in fact there is no repelling.
