I thought that wasn't supposed to happen. Is it the detergent? I'm using country suave

Try sunning them

I like tide free and gentle and tea tree oil

Yep, lay them out in a sunny window and the stains will go away. It has also worked for me on cloudy days.

Sometimes when I pull mine out of the laundry machine they have a bit of staining, but like the others said, putting them in the sun takes care of it :-)

i line dry all my stuff so i can testify that sun will take care of it. its actually the uv rays so it will work on cloudy days too. if it gets really bad for some reason though, i wash all my prefolds and inserts for pockets with a little vinegar. then wash the covers separately.

 No, it's just EBF poop. There is always going to be some staining with cloth, doesn't mean they aren't clean, just stained. If anything this will get you prepared for TODDLER POOP. ::dramatic music:: That stuff is mercyless. Lol! And what everyone else said, Sunshine!
