Thanks so much for the help! I've been so frustrated, it's nice to get such a quick response!
No, I NEVER use fabric softener. I've been using a wet pail (actually my washing machine - works great Karen!), and do a cold water wash and then follow with a hot water wash and an extra rinse.
I tried each of your suggestions (excellent ones I might add), and the diaper is definitely absorbant - the water didn't pool at all - and the AF didn't leak at all when I put a wet diaper into it. Also, I checked the AF by dripping a small amount of water into it and it pooled up wonderfully.
Just to clarify, Karen, it's not really the whole diaper that's getting wet, it stays mainly up front and in the middle, but it's leaking through her onesie and clothes. So I don't think it's an absorbancy issue, I think you may be right that she's just peeing so fast the diaper can't keep up.
So, I think I'm going to try a doubler and maybe try to be sure the wrap is on nice and tight, as you suggested. Hopefully this will work!
Thanks again and if anyone has any other suggestions, I'd love to hear them!
