    Is anyone else really having problems with issys? I love them, but the outside fabric next the inside of her legs is always wet after around 2 hours. I use the day insert and also a little lamb bamboo insert. Ive only just started putting in the LL insert as I thought maybe it was because she was out weeing them.

    I dont want them to not suit her as I really love them and they seem to be fitting well (except the wetness) but Id really like the nappys to last more than 2 hours!!! My easyfits with a LL booster last for aaagggeeesss. :shrug:

    Im at a loss.

    I occasionally get wicking with cotton Issys. You could try putting them away for a little while. She'll probably pee a lot less when she's weaned onto food. I used to have a big wetter pre 6 months. Afterwards not so much.

    ^^second Mandarhino. They start to hold their wee and then just do the occasional mega wee just like us grown ups once they are weaned onto food and a bit older. Em is 15 months now and not nearly as much of a heavy wetter as he used to be. Issys are now fine whereas a year ago they would have been very much hit and miss.
    That said cotton outers are always prone to wicking, much more than minky or polyester.

    I sold mine too because of the wicking problem. They are so cute though, I am thinking of trying the minky ones but then they are very bulky too.
