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).
I'm looking at the weenotions inserts page - which ones are better? Or is it all much of a muchness?
The fold in half lengthways ones - are they easier to use than the ones that you fold into three yourself?
The fancy one for night notions (or heavy wetters) - wondering if that might be a good idea for my son. He's a fairly heavy wetter I think. I like the versatility of this one. Noticed that when I took the nappy of Cole earlier the two inserts were bone dry at the back of the nappy (last 1/4 of the inserts that is). So am thinking perhaps some extra padding at the front might help? The night notions one could be folded extra at the front I think.
He's gone to bed in a wee notions fleece side snapping pocket with a easy peasy insert and folded in half microfibre cloth - fingers crossed he won't be all soggy when I get him up at 11pm for his last bottle.
Sorry about all the questions. Finding it all a lot more complicated than last time. My DD must have been quite a light wetter - two microfibre cloths in a slinki minki was all she ever needed.
Cole seems to be a totally different kettle of fish.
