Flannel fleece? I'm not sure what you mean by this.

 Im not sure by flannel fleece either. If its a cotton fleece thats your problem, the cotton is absorbing the fabric through your cover or letting it get out around the legs.

Also with your insert, I would put the bamboo on the ouside, Im asumming the cotton you use on your insert is a regular thin cotton? Bamboo absorbs faster than cotton does especially a smooth type cotton.

If its poly fleece like the stuff at joanns and hancock, it might be too thick causing it to wick out the legs. Try laying the soaker in, instead of stuffing them in the pockets and see if that helps.

okay yes the cotton is a thin cotton b/c i dont have a serger and the microfiber was fraying like crazy i put the bamboo in the middle b/c i was told it could "hold" more without leaks and the flannel fleece probably is soaking in the "wet'"  around the legs:( wish i has tested them first i made 22 of em
