Today Jak's nappy leaked again, with 6 layers of MF and 6 layers of hemp after 3 hrs it was totally soaked twice, apart from at the very back!!!
Do you think it may be worth trying bamboo instead, or is it possible that he's just too much of a heavy wetter for pockets, any advice???
We're using fuzzi bunz and blueberries if that's any help!!
He's had about 550 mls to drink all day so I wouldn't say it was by any means excessive, and theres no way he's ready to be potty trained as when he's having nappy free time he wees about 5-10 times in 45 mins!!
I'm at a loss, any help would be hugely appreciated!!
I'm no expert by any means but I would say that you have got too much microfibre in there. I was advised when I started using pockets on my son to put a 3 layer microfibre insert first (nearest the inner fleece layer if that makes sense) then the hemp or bamboo behind it.
I use a 3 layer microfibre insert then 6 layers of bamboo or 3 layers of bamboo then the hemp.
I was advised that the microfibre is good at absorbing the wee quickly and taking it away into the nappy, the bamboo and hemp are better at 'holding' the wee once it gets to it.
Hope that makes sense and helps. I use 6 layers of bamboo or 3 of bamboo and 3 of hemp together behind the mf insert.
The other thing is have your inserts reached full absorbancy yet?
