Wow... 2 BG inserts would last Ruairi approx an hour!! Even with a BG large and a BG newborn insert, plus a hemp or bamboo insert underneath only lasts 2 hours before leaking!! I've never understood when people have said they use only MF inserts as even when Ruairi wa s a newborn he could out pee a large BG insert with a hemp booster underneath in less than an hour! That said, if I don't have any night nappies then I'll put a sposie on him and a pocket stuffed with 2 fuzzi bunz inserts, and that lasts the night just fine... MF does have it's uses, lol! So mf's not even that great for us - just adds bulk without actually being very efficient
Can't say I love it either, especially the feel of it. However, I use BG and they are stuffed with the 2 inserts that come with it. Max is a heavy-wetter and they cope fine with him for up to 3 hours. I also love the fact they dry overnight. I do have bamboo and hemp boosters but I find these are more bulky than my BGs and have had more leaks with them
I really hate the feel of them... some of my BG inserts feel OK now, but htey're old anyway, but the newer ones feel awful! I have excema on my hands an dmy skin is often split and bleeding, and MF inserts just make me cringe *shudders*

I agree with this, especially when my hands are a bit dry, and my dry skin clicks on the mf. Ugh, makes me shiver just thinking about it, I hate it when it happens, it makes me cringe and almost makes me sick. (yeah, I'm a bit weird)
I never considered that the mf could be responsible for the smells... wonder if that'll change now that I've taken it out!

Well, I stuffed all my pockets with hemp and bamboo only an dwe'll see what happens. As I said, Ruairi is a stupidly heavy wetter, but he's not a power wetter (ie it doesn't come out really fast - he's a little and often child). I told my child minder that she has to change him more often now - she's so good and completely understood that it's illogical to keep adding and adding to Ruairi's pockets so they last, making them so bulky and him more uncomfortable, so she'll change him even more often.
I was just figurring that OBV 2 part nappies, or nappies like baby beehinds hemp or bamboo nappies don't have any MF in them, yet noone says you have to add MF to avoid leaks! Can't see what's different with a pocket nappy, but we'll see eh!
Will let you know what happens... hopefully we won't have any nasty surprises tonight!
