What counts as 'out-weed'?

Postby macmomo » Sat Apr 16, 2011 8:18 am

Have been using cloth for about six weeks, mostly bamboo terries and fitteds. Are you supposed to change them before the wrap gets wet at all? When people say their baby has out-weed a nappy, how do you tell? My DD sees through a bamboo LL with booster in one wee, but it's not totally saturated - but the wrap is definitely wet.

For my heavy wetting daughter, out-weed meant leaked; literally the nappy soaked through (including tabs). I would expect a wrap to be wet on the inside.

I would also say it is when there are leaks. When the nappy is so saturated that the wrap can no longer contain the wetness so it leaks onto clothes. The inside of a wrap will be damp with a fitted nappy.

thanks for the clarification - yes, I always expected the wrap to be wet on the inside, just making sure I wasn't getting the basics wrong!
