What nappies were theyand what are they made from? Are they brand new? How long did you leave them on before changing him?

:wave: I don't use pockets but yes you'll need to pre-wash a few times before they are usable for any length of time & even still the more you wash them the more absorbant they'll become!

Or it may be that your not doing them up tight enough!

Someone who uses pockets will be along soon :D

the inserts wont be absorbant at all becasue they are new hun , the more the get washed / worn the more absorbant they will become. The best thing to do is to give them a good few washes (just the inserts , the nappies dont need prewashing) before using them again - or failing that if you NEED to use them , change them ever hour and wash daily. Do you have any microfibre cleaning cloths , or even old flannels? These are good for extra boosting in nappies and will help you out whilst you are waiting for the inserts to become fully absorbant.

Bg inserts are microfibre, I think ebay cheapies are too, if so prewashing won't improve absorbency

So possible issues would be fit, do you definately have them on the right rise setting?

How old is Lo? If older he could be power weeing

How often are you changing? Pockets often need changing every 2 hrs or less

You may need tp boost them I find microfibre a pile of poop, always boost with bamboo and hemp here
