How to get the stink out

We use cotton flats with wool covers on our daughter. Lately, the flats smell like cat pee after she has peed in them. I just think her urine smells stronger these days (17 months), but my husband says it's the diapers. Even though they don't stink after we wash and dry them, he thinks they store up unsmellable stink until they get peed on again and begin to emit the old stink plus the new stink. Make sense?!

Any suggestions for us to get the stink out? I use soap nuts as laundry detergent. Should I add baking soda or something else in the wash each time? I don't want to use harsh chemicals.

Thanks.
