This could be very bad...

Postby Anig » Tue Jun 03, 2008 9:06 am

I just got a nappy in the post (yay!) - it's a green kids one with turtles on a blue background and is very cute. :) I've also got a Green Kids inset of some description - may have ordered hemp after seeing all of the positive comments aout it. It's hourglass shaped and in two pieces, stitched together at the top. Do I just put this in the nappy? It feels very thin. Also, can I fold it to double the thickness at the front?

Thank you. :)

Depending on weither your LO is a heavy wetter or not you may well be fine wth just the insert it came with. But remember that hemp takes a few washes to reach maximum absorbancy (about 10 washes) I use either a hemp or bamboo tri-fold insert (6 layers once folded) and a MF booster.

Yay for fluffy post! I love my Greenkids! I have bamboo inserts but they are the same shape. I use nothing but the bamboo and they last for about 6 hours. Not sure if you'll also need a layer of mf with hemp though? I've never folded my insert, I just put it in doubled over the way it comes. Hope you get on okay with it.

Yes. Although you can put anything fast absorbing on top of hemp to give it a little help, mf, cotton, bamboo.
