Firstly, if you are not planning on having another dc in the near future but likely will someday do you sell or keep your stash as your dc outgrows it?<br><br>
Second question: Why can't I get my pocket dipes to work. I have one happy heiny and one swaddlebee's snap pocket. They both leak everytime I use them. Even if they are only on for a short bit. I have tried stuffing them with an insert and a prefold. Does it mean I just need more inserts- do inserts really work better than pf's? I have one terry and one hemp insert. I washed everything several times to start and havent' used them that any times so I don't thnk it could be build up. Any suggestions?

I've never had an HH leak on me, and my SB only leaks when I wait too long to change her <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: I stuff mine with prefolds, inserts, microfiber towels, whatever I happen to grab.<br><br>
Things that are easy to replace, I would sell, things that are expensive to ship (ie. prefolds) I would store

You might have some build-up on your fleece... it can cause it to repel... is the insert soaked?

Yes the insert is soaked. When I use an insert and a pf it is also soaked. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: At first I thought I was just leaving it ontoo long (i used it as an overngith dipe so it was on for several hours). Then I started using them in the daytime and they still leaked/wicked.

Are you getting a good fit? If you have gaping in the legs or waist you could be getting leaks that way. Sometimes when DS has held it for a while and lets out a flood, my pockets will leak, too. You may try and add a thin micro insert on top of your prefold, just to give them a little boost without a lot of bulk. I have found that they helps me!

My HH's tend to wick but I think its because they are the print ones. The solid PUL ones I hear are better but I love the cute patterns.
