  • Just squish the front. If it feels squishy then it is wet.

  • I give my son the "Aussie grab" to see if the material in the front is thicker on a disposable or wet on a cloth diaper.

  • Just grab a handful of the front of the diaper. If you've ever seen Crocodile Dundee, it's what he did to the lady with the deep voice to see if she had anything between her legs.

  • I look at the diaper. Normally you can see just by looking at it. Or smelling it. lol. I really don't have to worry about it anymore, my DD tells me when she wants and needs a change.
