For mommas who sew dipes, I have heard that sewing cotton to PUL can cause wicking issues. I have not had any issued thus far, but to avoid this is the future, how do you mommas avoid this?

Re: Wicking

It will! Just make sure that your PUL is exposed around the leg area, or that your inner, for AI2's is a nice poly fabric that you trust. Hope that helps!

Re: Wicking

Some of mine don't wick but some of them do, I have some cotton printed PUL that does but only if they are left on too long or worn overnight or in the car.
Leaving the legs exposed is one way to stop the problem like the PP said.
