WSS. A's nappies are incredibly eye-watering in the mornings when she is teething.
Same issue here. Not pleasant... but neither is the chemical smell you would get if using a disposable.
If it's just in the morning, then it is probably just incredibly strong teething urine. When using wool, more water gets the chance to evaporate, which make what's left in the nappy more concentrated (and smelly!) - good for their bottoms... you just have to hold your breath when first going into the room in the morning.
If it's every nappy, then it's probably detergent. My DS's urine seems to react with even the slightest residue. We were getting an awful smell on peeing, using the tiniest amount of non-bio (even with extra rinses), so switched to soap nuts and haven't had the problem since.
