Hi, I'm new to this forum (been lurking a while) but not to cd'ing. I have been using ME o/s for many years now - this batch is from my now 9 yo (when she was a toddler though - late starters). At any rate, I was noticing that the terry-ness (great word, huh?) is coming off a lot of the dipes and liners (have the snap-in liners). I know that over the years, they have seen some pretty rough use and I have left them to soak in wet pails too long sometimes. I'm not blaming ME at all - these dipes have been well used.<br><br>
But I was wondering if the lack of terry-ness is what is contributing to how soggy they feel when DS3 wets them. I just don't remember that feeling with DS2. I think they are losing their absorbancy. Does this make sense? It figures that DS3 is the most sensitive of all the kids to wet diapers too!<br><br>
Maybe it's just my way to rationalize buying hemp fleece prefolds (polar babies). <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

My sister had to replace all her ME diapers by the time she got to her 3rd or 4th baby (can't remember which). Yes, the terry was wearing off.<br><br>
I have a few ME one-size dipes but they'll probably last forever because I mainly only use them on diaper-laundry day, as I have other dipes that I prefer. I was at a LLL playgroup last week and another mother with a 5-month-old had some and they looked different than the ones I have, so they must have changed them. They seemed thicker in the middle and had a lining of some sort on the inside and the snap-in-soaker seemed larger and thicker.

the little terry tufts are falling out, I've heard moms refer to their old me's as having "crop circles" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> it will definatly effect absorbancy so I say go for some hemp prefolds <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
