Help! I need help again!
As a returning clothie I find myself asking for advice again.
I used to use Slinki Minkis on my DD when she was in nappies and stuffed them with two Tesco microfibre cloths folded into three.
This worked really well for her day and night. She was about 14 months or so when we started using the Minkis instead of a two part system so don't think she weed as much then as she did when she was younger.
Anyway, I am now using cloth on DS2. He's 13 weeks old, I *think* he's verging on being a heavy wetter although it may be that I just need to change him more often.
I'm gradually building up a stash of pocket nappies. So far I have some pocket bots, happy heinys, Sumbuns, Drybees, got some Berry Plush and Blueberry side snaps coming - oh I'm enjoying this bit immensely!!
But as far as inserts are concerned I don't have a clue.
Bamboo wasn't around when I was using cloth on DD. Hemp was but I didn't know much about it and didn't use it.
So, what I need to know is:
What are the best combos for inserts?
How many do I need to use in each nappy?
Which give the trimmest fit?
Which are the most absorbent?
Which fit which nappies the best?
How many times do inserts need to be washed to get up to full absorbancy?
I'm completely confused by all the different types and styles and am really not sure what I need.
So far I have bought four Easy Peasy hemp jersey boosters which I haven't washed yet but they fit nicely in the medium pocket bots I've got.
So, please take pity on me and sort me out! My mind is completely boggled about all this. I've been reading up on it all and have only managed to confuse myself further.
