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!
