Fit issues will cause a leaks sometimes, if its too tight or too loose. Check the risers and the elastic if you have Fuzzibunz or Softbums. Some diapers will require trial and error to find the right fit before they work for you. Sometimes you don't like a a diaper for no specific reason my suggestion is just is to wash it and put it back the bottom of your rotation give it a couple days before you to try it again. If it's still not working for you give it one more try after three uses if the diaper doesn't work for you it's time to just decide whether not you want to get rid of it or save it and go back to it later and see if you like later on.
Let’s say you buy a diaper and it didn't work out for you and you like a certain brand you can go to the group the diaper you don't like is for and say can I trade it for a certain diaper. Many brand specific groups have moms that offer and ask for other brands in exchange for said brand. If your like me at I was on a budget and I chose diapers that were cheaper not necessarily for their features, so when I added more diapers to my stash I gifted a couple of the diapers I was not in love with to someone else who needed them more than I did. Guess what they worked for her and she loved them. Last but not least if you use the diaper once and truly hate it contact the person or place you bought the diaper from perhaps they can exchange it or help you resell it.
