Hello! Well we have definatly decided that cotton and microfibre are not enought absorbancy for Elouise, even in daytime and to be honest, I am a bit lazy with changing during the day (bearing in mind at every nappy hange we have screaming, tantrums, biting, you name it!) so don't want to do it more often than I need to!
Anyway, I wanted to know if there is much difference between the absorbancy in Hemp and Bamboo? We get on quite well with hemp BUT we live in a hard water area and don't tumble dry. We do have a drier but we try not to use it, espeially when we get nice days where the nappies could be outside. Bamboo seems to be doing quite well too but it is hard to work out if it is lasting as long as the inserts are completly different. Seems to be soft enough from the line though with bold 2in1 tablet.
One thing I tried this morning was an easy peasy hemp with a PD bamboo insert on top which seem to last for quite a long time but I am trying to keep things as slim as possible and it also depends what nappy we are using. This was in a BG I think.
Our EH nappies are just rock solid - and am I right in thinking I still need to boost with something quick to absorb because it is hemp?
At night we are needing an awful lot of layers and her bum is HUGE. Got our UDNN today in french soy so will be praying that works! But i have never seen another french soy nappy? Is it a new thing? Exclusive to UD maybe?
We will soon have a newborn too and wondering what will work best for her. Do you think there is any point using hemp or bamboo for tiny babies? I wouldn't think they would need as much absorbancy? I want to be prepared! I have tonnes of MF and cotton boosters and inserts that I am thinking of getting rid of but if I can get the use out of them with the newborn then that would be a bonus.
I am always wanting to keep things slim fitting as I hate the big nappy bums!
