Hi!  I am a first time mom and my daughter is 3 weeks old.  I want to cloth diaper and have a full supply of fuzzibuns one size and bumgenius one size diapers.  I just started using both on her yesterday because she was a little too thin for them before.  When I go to change her, the diaper insert is SOAKED with what I think is sweat.  It doesn't smell like pee.  I am exclusively breast feeding her and she eats well.  I don't know if there is a solution for this.  Our house is never warmer than 78 degrees F.  I've only had her in a diaper and still have the drenched insert.  Anyone have  this problem before?!

are you sure it's sweat? That's an awful lot of sweat. 

 

I didn't like my Fuzzibunz once summer came either. I used snappied prefolds just to keep the fleece over baby's skin.

That's a surprising amount of sweat!  Is she otherwise noticeably sweaty?  How long did she have the diaper on before you changed her?

I thought it was a lot too.  I'm sure it is a mixture of pee and sweat.  She gets changed every two hours and no she isn't overly warm or sweaty otherwise.  I don't know it is very strange.
