Well, you wouldn't believe the stuffing combos I did over the past few days. My inserts stash is really poor, so I used basically all I had. I stuffed with:
-pop in nighttime booster folded in half+ one EP Harmony hemp insert
-two size 1 LL bamboo boosters+ one EP Harmony hemp insert
-IttiBitti trifold insert folded in half+one locally made bamboo booster
-pop in booster set+one Itti Bitti hourglas booster inbetween
-some other odd bamboo combinations
Results were amazing. I only had one leak so far, as I forgot to change the nappy after a nap and it was soaked when removed, so actually my fault.
I also tried the fitted nappies again and I was really really, REALLY impressed. I used one LL unboosted ( Ithought I boosted it, but I didn't) for LOs nap. After she woke up, I unwrapped her and it was still dry, so I left her in the same nappy for the next two hours. When I changed her, the nappy was soaking wet through and through, but the wrap (Nature Babies) worked like wonder, no leaking whatsoever!! I need to get more wraps! ;) And I already ordered more EP hemp boosters.
Thanx again for the advice!

Yay, gotta love bamboo and hemp hun. I am not even going for microfibre at all for this new baby, am just going straight to bamboo/hemp as and when needed! Xx

glad you got it sorted. we had to give up on BG with Natalie as even with no microfibre we got wicking once she learned bladder control and let out massive wee at once. We actually found the pop-in bombproof- even the dream dri with microfibre as the material and the leg gussets made it better at holding.
