I sometimes wonder if the wee loosens the dye slightly...

I've had nappies and woolies that don't leak otherwise - leak when soggy with wee...

Yeah water causes the unbound dyes to leak, so does soap. That's why I don't like dyed inners or CSP. Same happens when I rinse dyed yarns, especially with turquoise and blue. Dyes are fixed at the molecular level due to the chemical reaction so anything leaking is free dye particles that haven't reacted with fixer and bonded to the fabric or yarn.
