Bamboo or hemp?

Postby Shaunie » Tue Sep 15, 2009 2:55 pm

I now need to boost lo's nappies (currently using greenacre m/f insert & get 3hrs) but I'm not sure what's more absorbent whilst also keeping as slim as possible :-?

I hear lots about the easy peasy hemp boosters so am tempted by these but I'd like to know if you think hemp or bamboo boosters are better? :)

I like both. We don't get on with microfibre, so most of my inserts are bamboo and then I boost with EP hemp inserts... hemp is super absorbent but it isn't very quick to absorb so you need something on top of it otherwise you are likely to have leaks. EP hemp inserts are slimmer than my bamboo ones. :)

Plan to still use a m/f insert with booster underneath in the hope that it will do the trick - for a while at least :wink:

I would personally use a hemp insert then :)

I prefer hemp, just because it dries quicker
