do you use the vest/bodysuits that popper inbetween his legs? if they are a little too tight there they can squash the nappy, which in turn will squeeze the wee out of the inserts and cause leaks! Also if his trousers are a little tight/small around the nappy the same thing can happen (I found these were the main cause fo leaks/wicking when ds1 was small!)
I do use the popper bodysuits. He's only 15 weeks old on Friday and already in size 6-9 vests as he's so long in the body. They were a little bit lose on him in disposables but fitted OK over cloth but actually now I come to think of it they are getting a bit of a snug fit even over a disposable at the moment so time to rethink.
I might buy the ones that are just like little t-shirts, I'm sure I've seen them in Woolworths. I find the poppers a faff anyway as my hands are quite stiff due to my rheumaticy thing I have.
I'm on the lookout for bigger trousers. Have a nice pair of cherokee jeans which are good over cloth bums, also three pairs of joggers. I need to have a look round. A lot of the clothes I see in the shops aren't long enough in the rise.
