I usually use prefolds and thirsties covers, but now that my baby is getting squirmy I tried a pocket diaper. I tried the Babyland one off of ebay, which I know is a cheap knock off. I love that they are soft and fast to put on. But, almost every time I use it it leaks. It leaks at the leg opening. The binding around the legs is wet and wicks onto her pants. Is this because it is a poorly made diaper? Or is it because of my hard water? Although it did this the second time I used it, and has done it right after stripping too. I wouldn't think buildup could be a problem after washing just once! Any thoughts? I use Kirkland Environmentally Friendly detergent and have hard water. I usually use some washing soda in the wash, but didn't the last time I washed. I do an extra rinse with vinegar.
