Inserts for a cotton outer HH, ideas plse?

Postby nic1 » Wed Feb 06, 2008 5:47 pm

I have a gorgeous HH bought preloved from here and i adore it. It does have a cotton outer and in the past i have had probs with cotton outer PB too. Not everytime but most times that Evie has worn the HH it has leaked and it's not even abit of wicking but properly saturated :roll: I do think Evie is a pretty heavy wetter and in the HH today that leaked she had a hemp jersey (easy peasy) insert + 1 thickish MF insert plus 2 MF cloths folded over and it still leaked.

I do have some p'tit deesous bamboo inserts that i bought from here too so wondering whether to pop one of those in and other inserts with it also. What would you try and in what order in the pocket from inner to outer in that order??

TIA! :D

I really don't know about heavy wetting, but I quite like the HH stuffins as they are shaped, with the oval insert and a microfibre insert over the top. Wee notions has some really small hemp boosters, and I would try adding one of those to the mix (inside the stuffin pocket). I also quite like the blueberry combo inserts (hemp and microfibre) and you could always add an easy peasy in the middle of the blueberry combo.
Good luck.

I have a couple of the cotton HHs and the only things that work (apart from the one size stuffins) is an Ellas House Hemp insert, with a prefold on top. Evie would be an average enough wetter and I havent had any leaks that I can remember, in fact these are one of our most reliable nappies.

Hope you can get the combo to suit your Evie best.

I would say use less microfibre as when it's wet it squishes the wee out easily leading to floods and wicking...

Do by all means use a MF insert as your top layer but I wouldn't add any more than that...

Add more hemp rather than MF

My best (large) HH combo is a large prefold with hemp or bamboo under it...

I would probably go for:

the ptits dessous bamboo insert on top (so nearest the inner), with a easy peasy hamp insert under it

maybe with a mf insert inbetween if needed!
