The same thing has happened to us, usually his bedbugs because he had been given calpol before bedtime , the nappies in the morning were brown, especially if not washed straight away.
Sunning got some stains out but not all of them :-?
Hope you can sort them out.

What do you wash with?

If you're getting stains switch to Ariel Bio if you're not using it already...

Also switch to a paracetamol syrup that doesn't contain colourings ;)
Own brand ones are usually colourless...
