So the other night I sewed a doubler for my lil lady, who is a heavy nighttime wetter. I cut the sleeve off of an old microfleece shirt, stuffed it with terry and flannel, and sewed it shut.<br><br>
I was all happy last night to stuff it in her diaper, thinking she would wake up dry!!!<br>
About 3 hourse later she woke up bawling her little eyes out. She was SOAKED!!!! I had to change her, her jammies, the sheet, everything! Apparently, the microfleece repelled the peepee, and it all came out the side of the AIO. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shake.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shake"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hammer.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hammer"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/banghead.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="banghead"> So what gives? I know I should have tested the fabric first, but I read about all of these dipes that are microfleece-lined!<br>
I know I am revealling myself to be a real amateur here, but I could use some advice.<br>
Oh - and Lucy was sooooo awake after this, she was up for hours. She finally crashed at around 5am. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/sleeping.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="sleeping"> I'm tired.

I know microfleece can repell from detergent buildup and maybe the shirt was washed in something that caused buildup- like a natural detergent? (ei- Biokleen)
