Worst Cloth Diaper I've Tried
We have been cloth diapering my 13 month old for about 10 months now. For daytime we use Bum Genius Pocket Diapers (highly recommend) and for nighttime we use MothersEase Nightime Diapers (highly recommend). We found lately the MothersEase diapers were leaking a bit at night. My husband wanted to switch to disposables at night, but I find they leak sometimes too, so I wanted to find a better solution. After a lot of reading, I decided to go with the AMP Hemp Fitted Diaper and the Disana Wool Cover from this site. In large part, I chose this system because of the good reviews. I only bought one of each to make sure it worked before I invested too much, and I am so glad I did. This is a terrible system. For starters, my son leaks way more in this system at night then he does in the MothersEase or disposables. "Leak" isn't even the right word, he is soaking wet. I emailed Ava's Appletree when this first happened to let them know. I told them I had followed the washing instructions for the Fitted Diaper, and they said it was probably the Disana cover, and sent me instructions to lanolize it, which I did. It made no difference. The AMP diaper is SOAKING wet in the morning, even with the extra insert, and the Disana cover is damp and stinks. On top of them not working, they are a pain to wash. The AMP, based on reviews, shrinks a lot in the dryer, so I hang it - it takes days to dry. The Wool cover is a pain to wash, a pain to lanolize, and it takes like a week to dry. Now that being said you are supposed to only have to wash the cover once a week, but when it is stinking of pee that is not an option. Overall, this system is WAY more work and WAY more complicated and works WAY less well then the MothersEase Nighttime diapers. I obviously do not recommend.
