what inserts do you recomend

Postby girlinleeds » Thu Sep 24, 2009 5:45 pm

My main nappy is my bg v3 and pippa can go 3-4 hours with just the big insert in it. I've bought a few (loads) of pockets wnos, upsey daisys and a few others that don't have inserts with them. Now dh won't use them unless there pre stuffed but i don't have any spare bg inserts so have several empty nappies. i like the bb one size insert and just wondered how absorbant they are as every time i put a bb on pippa she poo's so never get chance to see how much wee they can absorb (do you think she's trying to tell me something??). Or do you have a suggestion, she's not a heavy wetter but do want something that will last
thank's

I use p'tits dessous bamboo inserts with a EP hemp underneath. If you want microfibre inserts you can use cheap microfibre cloths folded up.

I love my BBOS both for the nappy and for the insert, also the p`tits dessous are great as well. I would try to avoid too much microfibre, all my pockets leaked until i changed from MF to bamboo.

We use the BBOS inserts but I always have to boost it with bamboo to last any length of time. I also like Greenkids Bamboo inserts and UD soy inserts. We've just got a hemp and a bamboo UD insert to try so hopefully they'll work as well as the soy, although they're not so trim. hth

thanks ladies, i've ordered a couple more bbos inserts to see how we get on with them, hopefully at some point pippa will have one on without pooing so i can see how long they last for us

My BBOS have started leaking. They don't last very long - maybe an hour and a half tops. I'm gonna have to start boosting them...GK bamboo inserts are easily my faves. They last all night!

I like the BB inserts, also use the Swaddlebees ones which are v similar. And another fan of p'tite dessous too (I like the little teddy bear label :giggle: )
