I *finally* found the one size system that suits us (MuttaQins) but everytime I put a fitted on Ross he pees out the diaper and down his legs. We've never had this happen before with any diaper so I'm very confused as to why he's peeing out of this one. Oh, and he doesn't pee out of the AIO's, only the fitteds.


FTR, the inside of the diaper is dry.

Help!

That is what I was wondering. But the hemp must have been washed enough or there would be complaints of shrinkage on the boards. It has to be in the leg gaps. Maybe a hemp doubler tucked under the soaker would fill up some gap in there.

That was my first thought, too. I thought only fleece could repel.
Now I'm wondering about velour too!

Actually it's a really good fit on him. Very trim and a pretty good fit around the legs. I do know what you mean though about pf's. I can never get a good fit around the legs when I put a cpf on him!

I always make sure I have it pointed down when I close his diaper up but maybe he's putting his hand down there and moving it around??

I've had each fitted about the same amount of time...approx. 3-4 weeks and they get used pretty regularly. I'd say they've been washed no more than 10 times each.

I'm really at a loss here. I hate to sell them but I can't have him peeing down his leg constantly!

I laughed when I saw that too! A little boy I used to babysit would say "Can you see my weinis?" every time I changed his diaper!!! :LOL

Try pouring some water on the velour to see if it is soaking in or running off. But then you would still think that the hemp would catch it. So it has to be in the leg fitting. I would trifold an 8x8 hemp washie and tuck it under the soaker. That will cause a more snug fit next to his "weinis" and it might catch the pee before it escapes.

I'll try it! I hate to think I'd have to sell these especially when these are the *only* one size system out there that works for us.

You could be right! One of them is the heroes print (firetrucks and such) and he just loves that diaper!

I have a bunch of Muttaqins for my DS and I don't have this problem...I second the 'weinis issue'
. Even when brand new and washed 1x by me, my velour didn't repel or anything. Sometimes if I don't get the rise folded down correctly I get wing droop etc and I could see how a leak could happen then.
The kind of leak you're having is what always happened to us in sposies. I believe it's been referred to here as Houdini Weenie.
Otherwise, sell 'em to me
