Re: what is with print diapers wicking ugh

you have to wash cotton print dipes on hot and dry in the dryer on hot. That stops the wicking for my supersoaker. The polyester prints do not need to be put in the dryer, they do not usually wick for us.

I had the same problem. I bought some waterproofing spray and I spray the outside of all my print diapers before even using them, and now they're as good as solids for me. I got the spray at Target in the camping section and LOVE IT!

I got my first print dipe ever that doesn't wick and I love it...I have others that wick though, I usually tend to avoid buying them.

That's why I don't get diapers with cotton print....b/c I know my boys would find a way to make them leak!

Sorry Momma!
