Leaky Itti Bitti Tuttos

DS is 3 weeks tomorrow and we have just moved from disposables into our Itti Bitti Tuttos and we can't seem to stay dry.

They are definitely tight enough round the waist and don't seem too baggy around his legs but they are soaked the second he wees at the moment. I almost expected it at night as he does go 3-4 hours which I thought may be pushing them but this morning he had leaked in an hour Seem to be lined enough and last night I boosted further with fleece liners. Bit disheartened by it all.

Any hints/tips from anyone already using them?

are they new? are they bamboo? bamboo needs LOTS of pre-washing to get up to their normal level of absorbancy

p.s. fleece liners don't add absorbancy, they draw the moisture away. Unless you mean MICRO-fleece boosters. If it's fleece like as in a fleece blanket/jacket then its a liner not a booster. HTH x

Thanks - fleece a liner rather than booster (old fleece scarf grin). They are bamboo liners. Been through the wash 4 or 5 times - may just need a bit more. Also didn't pre-wash the outer nappy which I understand may be an issue.

*Bamboo boosters, not liners - too much terminology...

yeah that fleece wont add absorbancy, it's just to keep the skin dry and make it easy to carry solids to the toilet to flush. I would say you need way more than 4-5 for iitts to get them up to full absorbancy (once you do they last and last)

Thanks! Have had the wash on all day!
