Am i doing something wrong?

Postby *tinkerbellarella* » Wed Sep 08, 2010 7:26 pm

righty my wn pocket came today (super quickly, ordered tuesday came today!) all soft and yummy i found what i could to stuff it, which turned out to be a wn hemp thing and a prefold boy folded.

is it wierd that it leaked less that an hour later?an easyfit lasts taliesin 3-4 hours yet this didn't even make an hour. the fit looked fab but oddly it was soaked on one side dry on the other under his bum.

what should i be using in it if this is wrong?

You don't need to pre wash them but it is a good idea to give them 3 or 4 mins on hot in the tumble dryer to seal the pul where it has been sewn, I found this happened especiallly with cuddlesoft inners x

What is the pocket lined with? Mine are all lined with cuddlesoft and the wee just runs right off it until it's been pre-washed. I thought it would be ok as long as the inserts weren't new, but they just don't work for me without pre-washing :wink:

ETA, crossed posts with Kirsty. Never knew tumble drying would work so well :D

Sometimes they do need a prewash, the wee doesn't go through the inner :wink: I've seen it running out
