Boosters for coolababies

Postby janeelibaless » Sat Feb 06, 2010 10:02 pm

Hi, Can anyone recommend a bamboo or hemp booster that will fit coolababy nappies? At the moment we use little lamb boosters with the coolababy inserts and I think that they would last longer if the boosters were the right shape. Thanks, Jane

I use the included microfibre inserts, a bamboost (puddlekins) and a ep hemp...that lasts Aoife a good 3 hours

I use an Easy Peasy Hemp booster under the coolababy microfibre insert. Last a good 4 hours for us like that. They are the same size and shape as the coolababy insert once washed.

WSS, really good fit and absorbancy and still pretty slim.

I use the LL Bamboo boosters with mine, they're the same shape as the coolababies inserts. Which LL are you using?
That said they are only 2 layers of bamboo so not hugely absorbant, but enough for us. As others have suggested Easy Peasy Hemp would be better if you have a heavy wetter.

I'm definately an advocate of the easy peasy hemp boosters as they seem to be a near perfect fit. I've also noticed recently that bambino mio size 1 prefolds work well, as I needed something in an emergency! Kate

Thank you all for your replies. I bought some easy peasy hemp boosters and used them under the microfibre inserts. This worked well for a while but they've started to leak again, sometimes within the hour. I'll give the prefolds a try and maybe add some bamboo boosters aswell. The little Lamb boosters that we have are about half the size as the inserts. My baby has just started nursery and I need pockets to work!

Are your hemp boosters up to full absorbancy yet? I don't think they should be leaking within the hour, unless it's the fit of the nappy that's the problem.
