Are they cotton outers, rather than poly? We don't get on with any cotton outer pockets. It's not that they leak, they just wick, regardless of what I stuff them with.

WSS, I'm afraid we didn't get on with the cotton outer HH's either. :(

A quick tumbledry might help but we found the prints wicked after about 2hrs towards the end too though they were fab when Isabelle was younger and didn't wee so much...
