I have bought some P'tit Dessous bamboo inserts & was just wondering how many times I should wash them to reach max absorbency? Thanks, Siobhan

Bamboo takes at least 6/7 washes to reach full absorbency. I don't usually bother prewashing anything though, just boost more than usual and change more often the first few times you use them.

I'm like Louise, I am too impatient and can't be bothered to waste the energy on pre-washing so I use new things straight away, and just bear in mind the first few times that they might need changing a bit sooner. But you soon get them up to full absorbency

Think this could explain why he pee'd out of one in an hour after just one wash :giggle:
