BGOS leaking through PUL

Postby cmv_in_sweden » Fri May 13, 2011 7:42 am

So, DS's dipe got soaked and actually leaked through the PUL. Is the diaper shot? It's probably 18 months old, but has never been in the dryer and it has no visible peeling or anything? What to do?!?

You may need to put it in the drier on hot to reseal the PUL. 18 months doesn't seem that old to me. DD's Kawaii have been in heavy rotation for almost 10 months and still look brand new.

Great, thanks. They are in great condition, but I've never had any leak problems! Wondering if it somehow got snagged or something?!? I can run it through the dryer after the next wash to seal it up.

Mine started leaking after about that long and the PUL on the inside was looking pretty bad. I had to throw some out. Have you looked at the PUL on the inside?

If the diaper was soaked of course it would leak. I would stuff more or change more often. Sealing the PUL couldn't hurt though.

He'd only been wearing the thing for 45 minutes, so guessing he had saved it all up. The PUL looks fine. The only leaks we've had from BGOS before were out the leg...it just seems weird. There must be some kind of problem with the PUL. Washing now, so will try to run them in the dryer. If that doesn't work, I guess we're diaper shopping.

So far, he seems fine! I think the run through the dryer helped. Whew!

May be in need of a stripping. buildup will cause the PUL to leak.

I stripped just last week! I think the PUL is breaking down a little on this one dipe. The dryer helped and we have no more leaks!!
