Often leaky diapers are the reason families want to give up on cloth or think that something is wrong with their diapers. They wonder, Are they ruined? Worn out? Need to be stripped? Do they have holes or defective PUL? Is XYZ just a bad brand of cloth diapers?
- Check the size. If the diapers a bit too small it could just be that you need to go up to the next size.
- Check the setting. If you use one size diapers you might be using the wrong setting, perhaps you need to snap up or down or adjust the leg elastic.
- Check the inserts. Could be that adding an extra insert or doubler is all you need. The other possibility is that you might be overstuffing your diapers which can cause the diaper to not fit properly. Here's a great post on the Knickernappies blog about the issue of "overstuffing."
