The Hamac cloth nappies are very efficient against leaks, but the absorption is a bit lower than the one of disposable diapers (because in the Hamac absorbent pad, there is no super absorbant chemical gel - SAP).
To avoid leaks, we advise you to change your child regularly (every 4 hours).
At night or during naptime, you can use the overnight pad to ensure maximum absorption, or add a thin pad on top of a standard pad.
Occasional leaks may occur, both with disposable and reusable nappies.
Nevertheless, if you are experiencing repeated leaking, there might be a problem. Here are some tips:
- Ensure the Hamac nappy is the right size for your baby's body and weight
- Ensure the elasticated edges are well positioned in between your baby’s legs
- If the absorbent pad is saturated, leakage may be due to insufficient absorption: You should change the Hamac nappy more often or add a second absorbent pad.
- Do not use fabric softeners or oily detergents when washing reusable absorbent pads, as this can reduce their absorption effectiveness.
