Ok I have been to my local nappy library and the lady was super helpful and has given me some inserts to try, mainly bamboo though, and some fitted nappies to try, one hemp some bamboo. She gave me 1 zorb insert to try but didn't have any hemp inserts to try.
Anyway, yesterday we had NO LEAKS, with one insert as-is, either MF or bamboo, then a bamboo folded in half and at the front of the nappy. Seemed to work well and I was really excited, but I've done exactly the same today and already had 2 leaks
he's in his 3rd outfit already and it's only 10:30am. The only difference is yesterday I didn't do up his vests, and today I've done them up but used vest extenders.
The nappy I just put off was totally saturated, only been on about an hour so I think he did a big big wee that the nappy couldn't cope with.
SO, what is the most fast absorbent fabric, and also which copes with compression best? I think big wees and compression are our biggest problems. I feel so disheartened!
Last night we tried a Baby Beehind hemp nappy which the library gave me, with 2 bamboo boosters inside and 2 outside, and a wool cover, and it was absolutely sodden this morning and his sleeping bag was wet too. Just don't know what to try, there are so many options, just none of them seem to work!
