My WNSS are still leaking?

Postby emmab16 » Thu Jun 07, 2012 7:30 pm

Hello

I bought a couple of WNSS and am having problems as they are wicking around the legs. I pre-washed them in detergetn as recommended & then washed them again a couple of times with v. little detergent,

I'm not sure why they're not working (I've been using fitteds before for daytime but wanted a slimmer option too)

:wave:

What is the inner made of? My cuddlesoft inner ones always wick if not popped in the tumble drier for a few minutes before first use. I've no idea why but it worked for us! It may well be that the stuffing you are using isn't right for you as Eleanor says so you might need to experiment with it a bit.

I have the 6 layer WN insert - microfibre & bamboo, and it was wet but not soaked when I changed her

I tried the tumble drier trick, put her in one of them this morning & it leaked very quickly around one of her legs, so I guess it must be a fit issue. They are a lot narrower in the crotch than the bumbles I have been using for ages. Any ideas ladies?

thanks

Silly question but how many times have you washed the insert?
I sometimes pop a microfiber booster on top of the inner worked for DS. I have to say I do get wicking with DD, but as she is usually in dresses and bare legs at home so it dosent matter so I haven't bothered much I have just bought some PD inserts but they have only web washed about 5 times so can't comment on them yet.

Tbh I always found that my WNSS leaked on DD, no matter what inserts I used :-(
