Wet Backs and Soaking Sheets, Oh My!

This morning I awoke to a familiar, but completely unwelcome sight:  A small wet spot on my sheets.  No, I did not wet my bed!  But my son did.  Of course, he didn’t do it on purpose.  He is just a baby.  Somewhere along the line we had a cloth diaper failure.  Half awake (this was at 6:00 am) I picked my son up from our cozy bed.  Instead of morning cuddles like usual I had to tend to his wet clothing.  

I examined the culprit- a Blueberry One Size Pocket Diaper with snaps.  It was stuffed with a hemp and micofiber combo insert.  I couldn’t figure out any structural failure (a fit issue).  It had to be repelling.  NOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Fast forward to 8:00 am.  Fletcher was now in a Bum Genius 3.0.  I decided it was time for both of us to take a nap.  We cuddled up in bed and fell asleep.  Once again, I woke up to a familiar site:  Another puddle!  Thankfully I had not changed the sheets yet, I just moved over to the other side of the bed!  Again, I was robbed of my cuddle time.  When my son wakes up he is the happiest baby.  He loves to roll around and play right after waking.  Instead, I ran him over to the changing table to get a fresh diaper and change his outfit, again.

So yes, I am having a repelling issue.  This means I have to strip my diapers of any and all detergent that has built up on them, causing them to let pee slide right off of them.  I am not a fan of bleach, so I will be using hot washed with dawn, followed by a lot of rinsing.  Looks like today is going to be a great day to EC!
