Does anyone have any experience with these? I have 6. I washed them once - they needed a double drying cycle then used them on DD. Well, they leaked all over the place. The pee just ran right out the leg holes.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
Do they need to be washed more before we use them? I am thinking of just getting rid of them. We mostly use CPF's and I love that. One run through the dryer and they are all done. Plus there is nothing to resnap and match up just fold and shelve diapers and I am done.<br><br>
What would you do?

I have a couple and the fit runs large-my larges are still on the smallest snap setting and my DS is now 35 lbs! But I have never had a leak. Did you get them new? Can you pour a cup of water on them and see if the fleece top on the doubler is repelling?<br><br>
I have a 3 washes rule before I use a diaper and expect absorbancy (6 wash rule for hemp) but I find clothbaby to be a solid performer-we use them for extended car trips, despite the 2 day line drying time.<br><br>
HTH!

I have one ClothBaby AIO I bought off the Trading post, so it was already broken in, but I love it! I've never had a leak with it, and I use it primarily as a "running errands" diaper. It does take a bit longer to dry then my CPF's, but not too much longer.

Thanks Kasumi, I am rewashing them now. That will make three washes and dries. The water was just running off the fabric.<br><br>
I will see if that helps. Maybe they just need to be broken in.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">
