I was going to ask you Beth, is it possible to buy the zorb boosters on their own? Without poppers so they can just be added? The fit is amazing and I'm sure I will get it to work somehow but I think it will need some boosting (really really heavy wetter).
As Beth said they'll need a fair bit of prewashing...hemp in particular needs about 8-10 washes before it'll reach it's most absorbent state.
TBH hemp may not have been the best choice if your lo is a very very heavy wetter....in particular if they're a fast wetter too. Hemp can hold a lot but takes a while to soak everything up. The Bamboo Hemp Fleece may be the better option (either with zorb or extra BH Fleece layers in the core) as it absorbs a lot faster and can hold probably more liquid than the Hemp alone.
Yes an addidional booster can be made....maybe you'd like to try a BH Fleece one?
