Insert combo for Night Notions

Postby moonfruit » Wed Sep 10, 2008 6:48 pm

Hi

I have decided to take the plunge and order some new night notions for my two toddlers. My son is a moderate to heavy wetter and my daughter a very heavy wetter. What is the best combo? I'm guessing hemp or bamboo but which is the best?

Thanks in advance, Lisa

p.s. Anyone know where I can get bamboo boosters for dd daytime nappies?

I dont find it matters much for us which we use, but I personally prefer the feel of bamboo over hemp - possibly because it does stay that little bit more soft in the wash...

For our night notions, we opted for bamboo for the large folding bit and hemp for the snap in bit and that works well.

I have bamboo for the large bit and hemp for the small bit that poppers on and this works fabby for us!

bamboo inserts for day nappies - I love p'tits dessous ones, I also use simple 40cm x 40cm bamboo terry squares folded into 3 and that works fab too

I prefer bamboo for the trifold and hemp for the snap in bit too. I bought some hourglass shaped bamboo boosters from Peachy Cheeks that I use with my day nappies.

I'm the other way around for this - I have hemp for the large bit and bamboo for the smaller snapin bit :lol: Works well for us...

Ahhh that's what my boosters are, I bought some yonks ago from there before Gracie was born but couldn't remember what they were!!!!! :oops:

I use a fuzzie insert and one of them for overnight in our fuzzies but am going to get a NN.

I also have mostly large bamboo squares, plus hemp snap-in, although I do have one the other way around.

I boost the large bamboo ones with extra hemp and put something for extra absorbancy in the large hemp one - such as an MF cloth. Not that I like using MF overnight, but a small bit of bamboo just doesn't absorb quick enough and we get leaks and I don't have any bamboo boosters anymore.
