Another Swaddlebees question

I just got my Swaddlebees order and ds wore one. The first time he peed it ran right out of the diaper! Never even soaked through into the soaker. What did I do wrong? I'm not a newbie to pockets. I use them all the time. Is there something special that I'm not doing right?

Re: Another Swaddlebees question

What kind is it? What is his body type like?

I just got a whole bunch of aplix pocket swbs, about 2 weeks ago...and they ROCK for dd. They fit so fabulously. Much better than her fbs, which i am going to have to move out soon. BUUUUt if she poops there is sometimes a leak, not a poop leak, but it is like the poop blocks the absorption of the pee...(i don't leave dd in poop diapers, i have just noticed that when i change her there is sometimes a small leak and the leak that happens is not actually poop leak. kwim?

dd has BIG thighs and a regular sized waist...you know, not a buddah belly...

the pockets fit her better than the aios...which are a bit snug in the thigh, not too snug, but a bit snugger than the pockets. actually the fit is quite different.

Did you wash them first? Maybe a silly question, but I think the inner is velour, and it may need to be washed to get all the chemicals out that are put on when the fabric is manufactured.

What about the insert? Was it new also? It might take some time for it to break in. How is the fit? Do you need more absorbancy? Did you dry them on hot to seal the PUL?

no i didn't wash them first. Some ppl say to wash first, some don't, so I didn't. Maybe that is the problem.

Re: Another Swaddlebees question

If you are talking about a dipe with ov, you need to wash it a few times...i have a couple of aio's and they leaked until they were washed alot to fluff up the velour.
