Wool or fleece over the leaky dipes. Ellie is doing the same--Kawaiis, BG, FB's--all her pockets. We sent interlock pants to the babysitter & she's starting potty training with her.
Good luck! don't give up. We do use fitteds and wool or fleece at home, so we don't have this problem, but she still gets wet fast.

Totally making a mental note about this! I know I've heard of toddler pee going faster than the cloth can absorb, but good to know that this is a disposable diaper issue too!
Another note to self: Put clothes back in the car for ME! lol.
I do hope this doesn't last long for you or that you're able to find a solution. I wonder if there are any creative solutions on diaperswappers.

I agree, good to know that its a problem with sposies too! We use prefolds 90% of the time and I've NEVER had a pee leak that wasn't related to daycare personnel error. I did just buy a bunch of pockets though so I'll be on the lookout.
My DD holds most of her pee overnight and lets it rip a few minutes after she gets up. I'm able to catch it on the potty most days. At her age, its still EC and not potty training, IMO. If your DD goes at some regular time perhaps you can start popping her on the potty to start the PT process.
Glad it's a sposie issue, too. Sometimes, I read or hear stories like this and I feel like I'm walking on egg shells for when a problem is gonna arise for me with cloth diapering b/c so far, everything is going great!!! Glad to know I have you ladies here for help and advice if I do run into a road-block.
I hope you figure it out girl! I know that sounds very frustrating!

I wanted to respond to so many of you so forgive the long post...
DOUBLE HEMP AND MF?? Wow. How did you snap the diaper? And how did you find any clothes to fit over it?! I've done double MF and the diaper looked a little wonky with all the stuffing.
I keep forgetting about fleece. I haven't seen any at Kohl's and I don't think Old Navy had any either. I wonder who carries some.
I went to Kohl's yesterday and they have their 100% polyester fleece pants available now (at least here). Those work great. Also, I bought some specifically made to go over cloth off of a HC store. Let me see if I can find something similar...http://hyenacart.com/2by2boutique/mt...t-You-Pick-All You can go wild with fun prints or you can get some more subdued pants.
Oh, and her diapers were on a very different snap setting when I put in all those inserts, but my kids are pretty skinny so it worked.
Children's Place also carries some 100% polyester fleece pants that work awesome (and match a ton of cute shirts). I don't know if they have them in stores yet for the winter, but I've gotten some from there in the past and cloth fits under them just fine. You may need to go up a size if your LO has a bit of a tummy.
Kayla- I started PTing Ava around Jordan's age. it started because she was getting bad rashes with teething and airing out her little bottom worked the best. So I let her run around bottomless and kept the potty out in her eye site and bribed her to sit on it every few minutes.
She was fully PT'd with no more day accidents by 21ish months. I give a lot of credit to cloth for the early PTing. Andrew is in the process of PTing now, I'm hoping to have him out of diapers during the day by the end of the year.
As for the diaper issue...I have no advice. My first thought was they needed a few cycles through the dryer on a hot setting too. I hope you can figure it out. that sounds frusterating.
