Mine don't unless I keep them on him during a long, long nap. That said, I've had solids do the same thing if kept on too long.

I'm sure some prints are better than others b/c they aren't a cotton print, but rather a poly knit.

Ours have never ever leaked. But, we never use them for naps because I had read that they can tend to leak. Anyways, I wouldn't want to give up a cute print for naptime! =)

They don't work any differently than the solids, for us. We use both for 2-3 hours, nap or no nap, whatever. We LOVE HH's!

Re: Do HH's prints Leak?

I bought 'used' HH and they leak. I still use them, but I make sure I change my daugher frequently.
I've heard that laminated cotton fabric (as opposed to PUL) is more prone to leaking, I think, because the materials aren't fused together as well as PUL.
I've heard mixed reviews too.

Re: Do HH's prints Leak?

Mine did sometimes...I never trusted them for naps, but used them anyway for the cuteness factor.

I just wanted to add that I used a rotation of 10 HH prints and 10 HH solids and always dried them in the dryer as the manufactuer states is fine to do. After about 3 months of machine drying, the knit and cotton prints are pretty beat up, shrunk, etc. (tiny holes along edge of tops of all diapers) and the solids have held up nicely.

I was new to cd at the time and now understand different fabrics and would have cared for the prints differently. SOOO......my advice is to line dry prints!

HTH!

edited to add - I don't like how the lamination is "bubbly" inside of the pockets after the first wash. I have read other posts that explain that can happen when the fabric isn't preshrunk before lamination...why more than you asked for...sorry!
