Really annoyed because we have only just finished getting our stash of BBOS and was really looking forward to the summer when they will actually be seen! We keep getting leaks, before the inserts are soaked.
First I thought of build up problem so stripped all the inserts and pockets just in case but hasn't made a difference, and have tried using less washing powder but that just meant things weren't getting clean properly so went back up to 1 tablet of bold but with extra rinses but no luck. I don't think it is a problem with the absorbancy of the inserts as I have tested one or 2 of them and they seem fine.
BUT Elouise has had a bit of a growth spurt and I had been struggling to get them on her, they fit but I have to put effort into getting them on her - which is annoying when she is only 16 months and it says birth to potty?! Not sure if that could be to do with it?
But just now, I noticed that it wasn't fitting well on the legs which is where it was leaking, But the only way I could get it to fit properly is to take out the EP hemp insert! So wondered if I was overstuffing, causing leaks round the legs? So it now just has a BG MF insert, but this won't last long on her at all on its own so don't really know what to do? I usually use either bamboo and hemp or, if the bamboo are all wet (I have been using the bamboo on Talia so don't have enough now) then hemp and MF.
I want to get this sorted as I don't want to stop using pockets on her really as I find them very handy, especially for when somebody else is doing the changing. Before pockets, we would end up using sposies if she was being looked after by somebody else and DH doesn't like fitteds - he gets all confused with them because we have so many different types of nappy now!
Any advice? I don't really want to have to buy another set of inserts as we have just finally stocked up! We do have a few UD french soy ones on the way to us, but just 1 or 2 of each size. Might be able to get that to work though?
