I'm having leaking issues. I have babycity OS pocket and kushie aio 11-22lbs, and no matter which diaper, even with extra layers I'm getting leakage in the back of the legs. I've checked to make sure the inner fleece/cotton and flats aren't showing. I'm not sure what I must be doing wrong. Suggestions?
I can get my finger in the legs which is how I was told to tell it wasn't too tight. Sometimes the insert is soaked, other times not. I'm not sure what you mean about the onesie? Today the entire front soaked through.
Well what I mean by the last part is, since onesies are cotton and they are absorbent, if part of the onesies manages to get inside the diaper leg opening, it can contact the wetness and wick it out and then the whole onesie and outfit can get all wet. You have to make sure the onesie isn't getting bunched or curled up into the diaper on the inner thighs.
If the insert is soaked, that just means the diaper is not absorbent enough for her, maybe needs to be changed more frequently or you need a doubler or something.
If you have inserts that aren't soaked, no onesie wicking, it is just seeping straight out like the PUL isn't working, then maybe the PUL isn't working. PUL can fail on really old diapers or faulty diapers. If it is a pocket you can turn it inside out and look at the laminated side and make sure it looks okay, or even test it with a damp washcloth or something.
Bubbles under the PUL are not a good sign. It means the laminated waterproofing is coming off and not bonded to the fabric anymore. It is sometimes okay if the layer remains intact but more often it just means bad/delaminating PUL if those diapers are under warranty you could very likely get them replaced as that should not happen with quality PUL until they've had like 1-3 years of hard use.
