I got on really well with small pocket fuzzibunz at first. But now they leak. I think it's coming through the waterproof layer as opposed to leaking out of the sides. Can they be reproofed? I wash them at 40 degrees (although it says 35), could this have damaged them so soon? Or is it that I just need to move to the next size up, now that my daughter is ready for the medium size? I was hoping they'd last for another baby. If not, I'm not sure I want to buy the next size in this brand. But they were fantastic before!!
What inserts are you using? when the nappy leaks are the inserts soaking wet? If they are soaking wet then you need more absorbancy in them, add bamboo or hemp under the microfibre...or ditch microfibre altogether and use bamboo and hemp underneath...

All I had working was my FBs and Bum Genius BTP (BGs are so amazing that I save them for night as my daughter sleeps 12 hours, I need good ones for night). Little Lambs and Kushies also worked ok in the day but I'm not sure I want to buy the next size up in those cos I like the wicking effect of FBs & BGs better. I feel like buying just BGs, but I invested so much in these other brands I'd love to make them work.
Also any tips on brands that might suit a BG shaped baby?
Thanks, I'd appreciate any tips and even the chance to swap my hardly used FB (BTP) that might suit someone else's bottom!
Whats wrong with the FB BTP? is it the fit? do you get leg gape? or is it the absorbancy again? you may need extra boosters in them as above. we used BG's on my daughter and we also used Happy Heniy BTP nappies too.
Never used a tots bots rainbow before? what do you mean limited sucess? do they leak? what wraps are you using?
I love bamboo little lambs and just make sure that i line them with a fleece liner to keep my sons bum dry...
