Soy and bamboo

Postby aimeet » Tue Jan 05, 2010 11:00 pm

:idea: Annoying newbie with yet another question- sorry!
I have been looking at the upsy daisy side snap minkee pockets- what I want to know is what the difference is between soy and bamboo? I know bamboo is really absorbant but haven't heard anything about soy so far.
Has anyone tried it or know what it is about?
Anyhoo- thanks in advance - Aimee :)

Ive had both. Bamboo are much much more absorbent. Soy really isnt, and unless you have a light wetter shouldnt really be considered tbh :giggle:

Fab cheers- that is a help. I had thought that the soy wouldn't be as absorbant as bamboo so if I go for this nappy then bamboo inserts it is! Thanks fluffy! :D

I loved the fit of the UD nappies but we bought soy and it was no where near the absorbancy we needed...i would imagine that the bamboo is MUCH better :wink:

A soy UD night nappy was soaked in a couple of hours where as the bamboo WNNN is still dry to the touch outside after 12-13 hours!
