Does anyone use Print AIOs/Pockets w/ no problems?

I LOVE printed diapers ! I had a few when DD was smaller but as she grew into a super soaker they didnt work anymore. Now she isnt such a heavy wetter so Im thinking about getting a few.. What print diapers are in your stash????

The only print ones that I have are HH, but I do love the prints (Care Bears and Strawberry Shortcake!)

They do wick though if she wears them for long, so they are definitely daytime diapers.

I do, but my secret is to use a PWG (permenant water gaurd) on them. Here's a description from one wahm's site:

Repels water and stains. It is used on the outside of our Quick-Dry AIOs to prevent wicking, and works GREAT! It is safe all for washable fabrics, and odor and U-V brightener free. PWG lasts aproximatly 25 washings. To use, simply spray the outside of your Quick-Dry AIO shell liberally. Let it air dry until damp, then put in the dryer on HOT for 15 minutes to set. $14.95

Polyester PUL prints don't wick for us. They work just like the regular solid polyester PUL. Cotton prints absorb the moisture, rather than repel it, so you'll definately get more wicking. We've had great luck with SEZ polyester PUL pockets

i have print daisy doodles (ai2s) and i don't have any problems with those. i haven't ever had any wicking actually even with the non-100%poly prints, but the 100% poly print wear amazingly well...you don't get the sort of worn spots/washed out look you get in a lot of prints.

I have print HH's. I use them during the day mostly, though. I use wool at night. I have used a waterproofing spray on the ones that needed help. And it did help!

I spray all of my printed diapers I make with a water repellant to prevent wicking.

Almost all of my diapers are prints. It's the cute prints that get me to buy. I dont have more trouble with wicking with my prints than my solids to tell the truth, and I've never waterproofed them.
