Or go to the wee notions website and order some of the big fold out bamboo inserts along with a new pocket.
Rae wrote:Bamboo is more absorbant than cotton or microfibre. It is a little bulkier than hemp. If you get one of those fold in 2 or 3 boosters, I would prefer bamboo to hemp.
For boosters I would prefer hemp, but for a nappy itself I prefer bamboo, as it is softer and is much less crunchy if you are ever going to dry on the line (or next to the radiators).

We have a night notions, and have the big part of the insert in bamboo, anf the snap in section in hemp. In saying that we also use an easypeasy hemp booster in there for nights, and that combo works well for us. For daytime we can get away with a microfibre and an easy peasy hemp for 3 hours or so (depending on how much she has had to drink).
Fingers crossed you will have a relatively dry boy around 11pm.

Do you just use a microfibre cloth with your easy peasy hemp insert or do you actually have a several layer microfibre insert?
