Re: Why are my SB leaking?

That must be it!! I have 1 med and 3 lg AIOs that I got from a mama on here. I believe they were all new to her from the outlet. Anyhow, the med and 1 lg leaks. Interesting enough, both of them are green. The other two lgs I have, do not do this. My guy is a super soaker, so I thought maybe that was it, but I never let him go more than 2 hours in any dipe. I think the med may be leaking due to being too small b/c it leaks at the top. The lg definitely leaks around the legs though .

Re: Why are my SB leaking?

I noticed the same problem with one of my 1st quality AIO's, but I also hadn't prepped it properly. My batch from the outlet I made sure to put through 4 washes/dries and haven't had any problems except when the diaper gets drenched or I don't have them on quite right - squirmy babies can be hard to diaper sometimes...lol.

Anyways, maybe try putting them in the dryer on the hottest setting you have for a good 10 or 15 mins after they're completely dry? It sounds like the leaking isn't through the thread, but rather the needle holes where it was stitched. A good extra hot dry should help melt the PUL around the needle holes and hopefully fix the problem.

Re: Why are my SB leaking?

Two words- camp dry.

For $8 AIO dipes, it is worth it to see if a bit of camp dry on the outside will fix the problem for you. I have somewhere around 45 SB AIOs, and I only have the wicking problem with a few. I boughtcamp dry today to fix the problem ones.

I understand being more frustrated if you paid full price, though.

Also, a few people have been pulling out the stitches in the leg casing. After running through a hot dryer on high to reseal the pul, this should fix any leaking through the stitching.

I can't speak for the OP, but with mine, they have been dried for up to an hour and a half at a time (because the microfiber insert would take a long time to dry) and the PUL, fleece and velour were well dry enough after less than an hour. And they have been dried like this around 20 times. I am not sure what else could I do.

What is camp dry? I have never heard of it. I bought mine full price so am hesitant to use anything on them that could void the warranty, and I think in my case this is a warranty issue. Of course if there is an easy way for me to solve it and be able to use the dipes, I would be happy to do so! Pulling out stitches is not something I am able to do as I do not own a sewing machine (heck I don't own a needle and thread!).

Warning, poopy picture!

Warning, these pictures have poop!

Okay, here are pics of what mine are doing. This is an organic velour pocket, but the AIO's are doing the same thing. Sorry, for the poopy picture, but the problem is more evident on camera with poop!

At first I thought it was just me and my baby, but now after reading that other are having the same issue, I am realizing it is not just us.

Re: Why are my SB leaking?

I didn't realize you were talking about BF poo. I was having a problem with BF poo coming through the stitches, too, but not pee- weird, I know. My littlest one hasn't poo'd in them for a while for me to see if that specific issue has resolved. I figure it is worth hanging on the them anyways since she will be starting some solids in a month or two.

Camp Dry is a spray-on water repellent that you use for boots, tents and other stuff. I got mine at Target in the shoe dept. I think Walmart has it in the outdoor section. I have heard others rave about how it does wonders for even the worst diapers.

All and all, I love my Swaddlebees. They are definitely not for everyone, but few things are. I am grateful for Marguerite offering such an awesome price in the outlet so I could get such a great stash for my 3 kiddos in dipes, so it is worth a little effort to me to make them work.

I hope everything works out for you!

Re: Why are my SB leaking?

Ok. Well I tried a L Aplix from the outlet also and she was just in it for 4 hours We were running errands. NO LEAKS!!!! Im really thinking that mine are just too small . I think its because she has a longer torso. The mediums are like itsy bitsy teeny wheenys on her. Like they are barely abover her pubic bone.
BTW-I did wash AND dry mine 6 times. TO prep and seal the PUL so Im pretty sure that they are fine, jsut too small...But now I gotta sell off my GOOD DEAL! Unless anyone wants to trade for L???

Re: Why are my SB leaking?

Not that this is a perfect solution, but I have been putting a bsww over the aplix sb aio, just to make sure I don't have leaks. It's not that big of a deal around the house, but I got the aio specifically for the car, so I don't want to deal w/soiled outfits out & about. I realize that it kind of defeats the purpose of an AIO, but I feel better knowing that my chances of a leak are a lot slimmer.

Also,I got size large because I knew that they run kind of small, and have read enough reports to know that they aren't suitable for heavy wetters. But the waist is too large for dd right now, so the bsww buy me a little more use. Just an idea . . .

Re: Why are my SB leaking?

My baby is only 4 months old. Her measurements put her into a small or the beginning of mediums so I bought her mediums so they would fit longer. I know the mediums aren't too small for her and I know it's not do to heavy wetting since the insert is not saturated. For example, with the poop going through, it is obvious that the poop went through the seam holes. The hemp insert was only very lightly wet as my baby doesn't usually pee and poop at the same time. If a diaper can't contain poop...well then it's not really a diaper!

My baby is about 15.5 pounds and 26" long. I know larges don't fit her as we have some large Swaddlebees fitted and the legs gape huge because they are way too long in the rise for her.

I have tried BSWW with her for her fitted and she didn't have barely any room around the waist in the smalls and the mediums were up to her chest. They fit her terrible so I took them back. And they were really bulky on her as well. We have wool we are using for her fitteds, but I don't want my wool to end up poopy. And her fitteds don't leak through the stitching...

Nicole, I am glad you are coming up with a solution to your problem. But if your diaper is leaking through the stitching, seems to me the diaper has an issue, not you. Maybe if a bunch of us with the issue report it to Swaddlebees, they can make a change so this doesn't keep happening to others.
