Leaking in pocket diapers

I'm not familiar with pocket diapers much, we mainly use prefold diapers. Anyway, we have several pocket diapers and I used one today and it leaked as soon as he urinated. It seemed like it came right through the PUL. Is that possible? They are old but haven't been used. I only had one insert in. Is two mf inserts the norm?? Thoughts on the leaking?

Re: Leaking in pocket diapers

If it went right though the PUL you should check if its cracked. Turn the pocket inside out and see if there is cracks in the shiny PUL layer. You could try trifolding a prefold in it see it behaves any different. I would say if your LO rarely soaks through a prefold chances are good on large MF insert should be okay.
