Hemp bamboo combo

Postby sahara » Mon Sep 20, 2010 7:35 pm

I have some EP hemp boosters/inserts and a heavy wetter. I read that instead of microfibre over the hemp alot of you use bamboo. What bamboo hemp combo do you use - I have some little lambs but are there any better than those and the EPs

thx

The Petit Dessous ones are fantastic but can work out quite expensive...
We use a variety of ones - large bamboo terry squares work out the cheapest I think and also dry quickest...
EP bamboo are fab but dry slowly and aren't very long - they're about the same length as the hemp ones...

Totsbots bamboo inserts are good too, and not expensive.
Is the Petit Dessous so absorbent? Much better than the other bamboo inserts?

I have Little Lamb, PD and Greenkids bamboo inserts and the PD are the most absorbent of the lot. If you buy the large then it folds in two and this provides a very thirsty booster/insert :D

The Tots ones are ok in newborn nappies but tiny in comparison to the very very absorbent Petit Dessous ones...

Until a few months ago we were able to use just a PD bamboo insert in our WN pockets for Grace... We now need an EP hemp with them...
