Waterproof fleece!

Postby Annette » Wed Jun 25, 2008 12:34 pm

I bought a couple of pre-loved Happy Heinys a while back and just tried one on Ben. Except I picked him up off the change mat and he was soaked. He had done a wee as soon as I had put it on and it had leaked straight away - I figured maybe it was still a little big and it had leaked out of the leg hole but when I undid it the wee was still sitting on the fleece. So I put it under the tap and the water just pools on top of the fleece and the inside of the pocket stays completely dry - it was amazing!

What do you think has happened? and what can I do about it? They have been washed and I can't see anything on the fleece but do you think it could have been clogged by some cream or something? Never had this happen to any of my nappies before :?

Sounds like they might have been washed with fabric conditioner :?

Worth giving them a wash with plenty of detergent (or hand wash with fairy) and then do the whole rinse rinse rinse thing... I did have one of my pockets like this a while ago and I just put it down to build-up...

Having stripped them they've not been a problem since... Hope you can fix them!
