Berry Plush...

Okay am I doing something wrong? DS only wore this for an hour and it was wet at his legs! He looked cute, but if this thing wicks at the legs, it's no good to me and I bought 2! Anyone else have this problem? Or am I doing something wrong? Help!

Re: Berry Plush...

It was snug and the cover actually got wet. Maybe it wasn't snug enough. For the insert, do you tri-fold the cotton under the soft pad? Do you trifold it how it was when it was new? Just trying to troubleshoot. I have another one and I'll try that one next diaper and see if I can figure out what I did wrong.

Re: Berry Plush...

did you do several hot washes of the inserts to get all the oils out of the hemp? when he leaked out was the insert wet at all?

If, after washing you still have leaks, try folding the hemp on top of the minkee for a try. Once the oils are gone, the hemp should absorb faster than the minkee (since minkee is poly). If DS pees fast and hard, it might roll off the minkee and down the legs. That insert's so thich that it makes DD's poo shoot straight up her belly before it can absorb. It's gotten better over a few washings, so I'm thinking it's the absorbancy rate (and the thickness.)

I LOVE the ocean print! (I have one still in the wrapper, as I'm worried DD will grow out of it right after I open it) I really want a sunset one, too!

Re: Berry Plush...

DS was fine in his, but I don't know if I like the fit...do yours go really low on the upper thigh/leg? It seems like the wings dig into his leg. Anyone else notice this?
