Bamboo or Hemp boosters??

Postby clairegrace » Fri Aug 06, 2010 1:00 pm

Hi, just wondering which ones you'd recommend?

My LO is 7 months old and quite a heavy wetter, she's also on medication for a heart condition which makes her wee more. I've not had many leakage issues with my nappies so far but think it mignt become a hurdle as she gets a little older. I mainly use pockets with microfiber inserts (mainly wonderoos at the mo) which I can get around 3 hours from and I have 1 tots bamboozle and have just bought more :oops: .

I keep reading that hemp is really absorbant but that it smells when wet!??? Something I wouldn't be all that keen on and which I suspect would put hubby off reusables big time!

What are your thoughts??? :-?

I've not noticed hemp smelling when wet tbh. It is a very good absorbant but it is also slow to absorb so I find it is best used in conjunction with soemthing else on top that is faster absorbing. I used to use bamboo on top and found it to be a really good combo.
Hth's.
