My daughter is only a few days old and I have been using cloth diapers. Prefolds and covers.
She is breastfed and I read everywhere that breastfed poop is easily washed off in the washing machine. Well it seems something is wrong because every diaper I wash that has poop on it comes out of the wash with pieces of poop still stuck on it! It's really frustrating, and I am re washing a bunch right now hoping they come clean.
I had already been doing small loads, like half the normal size hoping that the extra space would get them clean, but not working!
This load I'm doing now is tiny, just a bunch of prefolds, one cover and two outfits of hers that got poopy as well.
I'm worried I won't be able to keep doing cloth if I can't get the poop off!
Anyone know what I'm doing wrong? Only thing I can think of is to rinse off each poop diaper before washing it, but every cloth website says I don't have to until she is on solids........
