Thanks, that's a good place to start!

Hmmmm I have a thirsties hemp prefold which is quite good, maybe I should look for more as they are really tiny too so I can boost too...

maybe I'm wanting the moon on a stick?! It's so disheartening when people know ds is in cloth and see his nappy has leaked again... I tend to change every 2 or 3 hours but do get caught out if he's had more to drink. 4 hours would see him through from after his wash till just after a whole playgroup, which would be nice!!

I haven't gone down this road as I think of wahm nappies as being super pricey, are some a similar cost to bamboozles etc?

I may well be looking in the wrong places / at the wrong time but whenever I find a shop selling hemp boosters they're always sold out
I don't often have cash to spend on nappies so maybe I end up missing the times they're in stock!

they are definitely better now than when he was younger, although the rise is so low that we'll have to stop using them anyway I think as I can't fit them any lower on his front now, iykwim? The tuttos are sopping wet, with 2 mini boosters and both of the other ones (all bamboo) and as they're so tiny I can't fit any more inserts in before we get serious leg gape - I'd need a wrap over the top which defeats the point! I'm curious that they're good for your heavy wetters though, maybe mine need a strip wash? I'd never thought of ds being particularly heavy wetting since he weaned so there might be something going on with the inserts?
Thanks for the advice, @ems101, @confusinglady, @Louise, @usinukveg, @aimeet, lots to think about here
