Everything seems to be leaking!

Postby MaryMoon » Tue Sep 08, 2009 1:16 pm

For the last few weeks I have had a lot of nappies which have leaked. This is especially so with my BG (V1) which have always been a fav of mine but lately they are just leaking in the crotch/leg area. My Fuzzis too seem to be leaking but I think that is because perhaps William has outgrown them. Then today one of my Wonderoo OS which was well stuffed had his trousers soaked in only an hour.

Could it be that his shape has changed and things are not fitting? Or perhaps there is something else. To wash, I dry pail then put on a 60 wash with a little (but not much) detergent (about 2 teaspoons prob) with extra rinse and spin. I dry either on the line or an airer.

I am very sad about this as it won't be long before he is pt and out of nappies and also I don't really want to have to get new nappies for just a month or so.

Any ideas? Thank you

I do wonder if perhaps the smaller clothes were holding the nappies on more snugly and since going into bigger ones he's weeing out of the legs?

It could be where he's close to PTing he's got some bladder control so is flooding the nappies. I've heard some people have overcome this by putting a booster on top of the fleece. As the liquid doesn't pass through the fleece quickly enough it can cause leaking IYSWIM.
