Okay I'll try and answer all of them!!
1. Am I right in thinking that hemp is really absorbant, but doesnt absorb very quickly? Yes
2. I recently bought some hemp boosters to use at night, so should I be putting them as far away from my dds bum as poss...i.e inbetween a shaped nappy and wrap??Yes again but they don't have to be the last layer, as long as they've got something quicker absorbing as the layer above then they work fine so bamboo, microfibre or cotton all work well ontop of the hemp but if you're using wool as your wraps putting it outside the nappy doesn't always work...
3. Also...Ive just bought the swaddlebees one size which is hemp and velour...and after finding out about how slow hemp is to absorb Im a little confused about it! Does anyone have any experience of this nappy?I don't have any experience of this nappy myself but I'm sure others can help You could always pop a fleece topped bamboo or cotton booster in
4.I was also looking at the swaddlebees pocket nappy for which you can buy a hemp insert...but again how would this work? Does one layer of velour really stop the wee from leaking before the hemp absorbs it? Does that make sense?Nooooooooo steer well clear of the swaddlebees pockets! Most ppl find that these leak TONS! They're really narrow and don't suit very many babies shapes... By all means get one to try but don't buy more than one... You're much better off with anything else really!
Sorry for the 50 questions!!!Ah question away
