I have the ME one-size diapers. I washed them at least 4 times in hot water (not dried, just ran through a wash cycle over and over, and then ran them through the dryer after the final wash) because I heard they wouldn't be truly absorbant until I did this.
Well, my 7-week-old son just wet through one, I mean it was completely soaked through. No leaks out the sides, it just went right through, the diaper didn't seem to absorb much at all either. The baby is too small to be able to use the liners. Am I supposed to *always* use the AF covers with the diaper, or is the diaper really supposed to absorb well? What am I doing wrong?
