...after it's really let you down? You know, the cover that let the entire outfit get soaked, the pocket diaper with repelling fleece, or the fitted that let poo leak out and make a huge mess. You know, diapering products that fail their #1 duty to uphold (i.e. <b>keep the wet INside</b>, let urine pass to stufer <i>inside</i> the pocket diaper, or <span style="font-size:medium;">keep poo from exploding all over the world</span>).<br><br>
Well this morning I had a fitted let me down. While I was browsing on MDC and the buggle was roaming the apartment. And yes he was wearing gorgeous longies at the time. And YES he was leaking poo out the longies, from the ankle, getting all over the floor and his foot, and he was walking blithely everywhere unawwares. Yes poo got over the entire apartment. NO it was not fun! How do I ever forgive that silly Sellin Threads organic french terry fleece side snapper??? (I don't mind saying the WAHM biz name because I don't think the woman plans on selling diapers anytime soon--she's been MIA for over 7 months and her store isn't featuring diapers anymore) WhAT A mEsS!!!!! I finally got it all cleaned up but man, the buglge was hysterically crying while I was trying to clean quickly before he stepped in it again and made mroe messes (first I cleaned him up, obviously)....and DH was on a business call to China and couldn't help. Oh the InsAnIty!!!!!!! I may have nightmares for awihle.......<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="blush">

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">...gross! we had a poo disaster yesterday evening too..but that was mommy's fault, not the loosely snappied prefold's...little turds all over the place, rolling out of the diaper! it was kind of funny, our floor was booby trapped with poo!<br>
i have trouble forgiving the ones that fail while we're out of the house.

I think the only diaper to ever let me know was pockets and prefolds. The pockets where my fault for not stuffing correctly, or stuffing moving around. And well, prefolds just SUCK on newborns IMNSHO! I would <i>never ever never ever never ever never ever</i> diaper a newborn in prefolds again! BF poo just doesn't stay inside prefolds, pinned or snappied!<br><br><span style="font-size:xx-small;">Did I get my point across?</span> <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent">

i hold a grudge too long, so 2 chances is all they get from me. if they leak a 2nd time we go our separate ways - i go my way, they go ebay.

I would make peace with the diaper and part ways with it selling it on TP. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> Hopefully no more messes like that again!

This is funny, I have had WAY more luck with prefolds than with fitteds on Jett and his explosive poo's <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> yesterday we had a fitted and a wool cover and it was still out the side down the outfit into the footy! *sigh* but I haven't had but one mess with a prefold. LOL I think it is the way I fold them? I seem to make sure there is a little pocket and it gets caught under the fold of the diaper. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Yep, I did this too! Make a pocket at the bum and secure with a nice fitting cover or a snappi, and no poo leaks!! Worked way better than even Kissaluvs for my baby.

Oh, gah, that sounds traumatic. I hope you are somewhat recovered. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> There are some things no dipe will hold in I suppose but on the whole I feel this way - if it was a matter of fit I could hold on to it hoping they will grow into it or I could sell or give it away. If it 's been fine in the past and there was just this one extraordinary incident I would probably keep it. However, it my dc did that sort of poop very often I wouldn't be using it on them at all - <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!">

When I first started cding I was using prefolds trifolded in a Rikki wrap, and I was out (of course) and the wrap came undone under his pants and I didn't notice and then he poo'd - a nice sloppy one. It went all down his leg and ruined a nice pair of Stride Rites. Have you tried to get poo off a textured shoe?? It's not fun and I gave up. On both the shoes and cding for a while. Fortunately I came back after discovering fitteds and pockets, but I've never gone back to prefolds.

Thanks for commiserating, guys!<br><br>
Did I mention the poo was entirely liquidy? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:
