Easy Peasy Hemp Inserts

Postby BingBongBoo » Wed Sep 15, 2010 8:42 pm

I've been browsing old posts over the past day or two and many of you seem to swear by easy peasy hemp inserts for stuffing pocket nappies. DD is a heavy wetter and the MF inserts in her pockets don't really do the job. I've had a look on ebay and easy peasy have two different inserts available - a microfibre & hemp combo (which at 4.50 each seems a bit steep to me) or a pack of 5 plain hemp inserts for a tenner. Which do you use?

Hemp is very absorbent but slow to absorb so many people have a layer of microfibre over the top to absorb quickly. Me personally i don't use any microfibre i use bamboo and then EP hemp underneath, so i would go for plain ones but thats just me

If you've a heavy wetter I'd ditch microfibre and go with hemp under bamboo...

Most people use the just hemp ones :)
