Bamboo - what's better...fleece or terry inserts?

Postby quinnsfluffybum » Sat Oct 03, 2009 3:30 pm

Just wondered what people's preference/opinion is on bamboo inserts.

I have used P'tit Dessous bamboo terry inserts very successfully in our WN pocket, but have just bought a GK bamboo insert which is bamboo fleece. Is this likely to be as good as the P'tit Dessous? I'm just really confused now because I thought fleece is used as a stay-dry lining so can't see how the GK insert will be as absorbant as bamboo terry (have read good reviews on them though) :-?
Aaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrgggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! Maybe I should just stick with the P'tit Dessous (better the devil you know and all that.....)

Thanks,
Karen

Bamboo fleece is absorbent so is used as nappy fabric or to make boosters/soakers/inserts. Polyester fleece isn't absorbent so is used to provide a stay dry layer in nappies and to make fleece liners. I personally prefer bamboo fleece as it stays sofer in my very hard water. HTH

The gk inserts work well.a gk nappy with one bamboo insert and a gk booster lasts us about 3 hours and nathan is quite a heavy wetter.at night we use a bamboo terry, ep hemp,ud trifold and a pd!

Aah - thanks, that makes more sense now! I have really hard water too so the GK might be even better for us than the PD. Just got to wash them & then I'll give them a go.
