I personally have found the perfect combination for us is the petits dessous bamboo inserts (3 layers but I fold them double so 6 layers) and the fuzzi bunz microfibre insert (which I think is 3 layers!) these 2 together work fabby for us in all our pocket nappies and last a good length of time!
Tee hee! I think you've told me exactly that before.
I've put Cole to bed in a Funky Nappy stuffed with a two layer bamboo insert thingy from wee notions - folded into three with a three layer microfibre insert on top. He looks like a weeble with all that on!
I think I've forgotten just how big it makes their bums look.
I wasn't expecting the microfibre inserts to be so bulky I guess. But I'm sure someone said that they sort of flatten out over time.
I also wonder though, whether because he is only just big enough to go into the mediums that they are looking on the big size for him.
But the small would be too small.
Perhaps once he grows a bit more they will look more in proportion to him.
Thanks for your reply. I'm definitely liking the bamboo more than the hemp from the soft, maleable point of view. I live in a hard water area so anything hemp or terry goes like cardboard.
