Hi! Hoping some of you can help me figure out how to get our Fuzzibunz one-size nappies to work. I had a look at some of the other posts on this topic, but would appreciate extra tips if possible!
We have been using Fuzzibunz one-size since our baby was 3 months old without any problems. However, in the last month they have been diasastrous. I have strip washed them, tightened them up, and started including a bamboo insert in every nappy (have tried in top of the microfibre and under it). But she is still leaking through even in under an hour sometimes. They do seem to be fairly saturated, so I think she is a heavy wetter.
As far as tightening the nappies goes, the fit seems to be appropriately snug now and poo is no longer leaking out the legs, but sometimes it gets squished up to the front top of the nappy instead - argh. Will this problem go away when it gets more solid?
Maybe it is my washing routine? I use about 20mls of Bold 2 in 1 clay-based orange blossom detergent. We are in Spain, where there is no distinction between bio and non-bio so I ordered the Bold online because of recommendations online. I do a cold wash, 60c wash with 20ml Bold, then a cold rinse. Is it possible to use too little detergent? Maybe I need to use more and rinse more afterwards?
I am wondering if a lot of the leaks are compression leaks because my baby is sitting a lot more now on the floor / in the high chair / on my lap. Maybe once she is walking there will be less pressure on her bum?
I really want to get these nappies to work! We have spent a fortune on them and I just hate disposables. We use them while travelling and hubby and I are always both delighted to return to cloth at home, as is our baby's bum.
Please help! Any tips would be gratefully received!
