:idea: .
Is your ds a heavy wetter? How is the 4 layer insert coping with the ai2 you have? If it's ok I would go for another 4 layer insert. If you are thinking of boosting I would say 6 layer. Do you need a stay dry layer on the top (like you already have?) If so go for the bamboo towelling and MF topped with a stay dry layer.
Cuddlesoft is what you have in yours inside, its pretty much like minkee tbh. Lovely and soft lol. Have you had a look in the fabric section? It will show you what the fabrics look like and you may be ale to get a better idea of what you like.

That was what I thought at first too about cuddlesoft, took me ages to work it out :giggle: .
Have fun browsing the fabric section, I can get lost in there for ages!!

I actually prefer a 4-layer insert with a hemp Greenkids booster (not the big double insert, just the booster!) in the middle - I don't find bamboo terry on its own particularly absorbent. :wink:

Cuddlesoft inners are great, basically the same as minkee but at no extra cost :giggle:.

My favorite design for an AI2 is the Sweet Night, firstly because the wrap part is fleece, not PUL, and secondly because the popin soaker unfolds completely into a rectangle to dry, so it dries fairly quickly, even though there are 12 layers of bamboo, once it's on. It also has a polar fleece lining all over, so is really comfy!
