Yep I think everyone on here loves the Easy Peasey hemp boosters. They are just the right size for stuffing most pockets and a bargain at £2 each.

Rectangular. About 3/4 the size of the microfibre BG insert.

I love the ptits dessous superbamboo inserts either just on their own or with a mf insert, hasn't let us down yet!

Am also finding a 40 x 40 bamboo terry square folded into 3 is behaving very reliably for us too!
(and far cheaper than the ptits dessous inserts :wink: )

I use Easy Peasy Hemp Inserts too along with the microfibre inserts the pockets come with. I also use the Ellas House ones as they're hourglass shaped and fit really well. Have also used 50cm bamboo terry squares in the past too.

I use Easy Peasy hemp inserts (boosters) too. Mostly use them in my fuzzis but fit other pockets too. My most reliable inserts are p'tits dessous ones i bought from Jan. they are two parts poppered together. the top part is microfibre and the other part is bamboo jersey (haven't seen anyone else that makes bamboo jersey stuff but it is FAB!!). kittykins have long p'tits dessous insert made of bamboo jersey that are folded in half to fit the pockets (measure 60x14cm). they are £4.75 each so a bit pricey. haven't tried them yet but have a couple on the way as if they are as good as the other ones i will be VERY happy!!
