Soy? about absorbancy?

Postby megansmummy » Wed Nov 18, 2009 8:42 am

I bought a new soy UDNN and pre-washed it once and then boosted it, it didnt leak but it was SUPER wet on the outside, much wetter than my unboosted WNNN's are after the same time...does soy get more absorbant the more you wash it, like bamboo and hemp??

I'm not sure if it gets more absorbant the more you wash it.
I find If I use soy I have to boost, but then again we have to boost everything. :roll:

Sorry not much help.

Recently I have found I've had to boost my soy UDNN too... it has been soaking right through :-? It never used to be that bad, but IMO it's definitely not as absorbent as the likes of my WNNN and FF's

we didn't find the soy nn all that good tbh, it was soaked each night it concerned me him being sat in it all night, we have a soy insert in our custom pocket i think, but i do boost with 2 hemp boosters too which seems to work ok, our wnnn are def the most absorbant, followed by our bedbugs

The soy does need a few pre washes just like hemp or bamboo.

When my dd was in nappies, I did find the soy more absorbent than the hemp night nappies and other types of night nappies I had (didn't have any bamboo).

I think like all cloth nappy things, different styles and fabrics suit different babies. As they grow their "habits" will change too so what was a good night nappy before wont necessarily remain a good one and vice versa :)
