Bumgenius leaking

Postby ponygirl » Fri Jan 13, 2012 5:19 pm

I only have 1 bg, not sure what version it is but I bought it brand new last may and it always leaks.

Does anyone else have this problem? Do you think its a faulty nappy or are they just not very good at containing wees?

Not very impressed!

Are you using the BG microfibre insert? Is it soaked when it leaks? It might not be absorbant enough, do you have anything else you could try stuffing it with?

Yeah I am using the microfibre insert but its not usually soaked when it leaks. Got no other inserts to try it with. The leaking is usually round the legs even though its a good fit???

Try putting it in the tumble dryer for 5-10 mins on hot, it could be that there are stitch holes in the pul, this has worked for me in the past.
I would ditch the microfibre as well and use bamboo or hemp x

We never got on with MF inserts at all. When compressed mf just squishes the liquid back out causing leaks so if its not solved by putting in the tumble drier then I would ditch the mf insert and use bamboo and hemp ones instead. I have always used a P'tit Dessous bamboo insert on top of an Easy Peasy hemp one in all my pocket nappies.
