Inserts- natural fibre or MF on top?

Postby moominmamma » Sun Oct 30, 2011 8:21 am

I think the title says it all, when I'm stuffing my pockets is it better to have the natural fibre (in my case I only have bamboo or cotton terry to choose from atm, although I think I'd like some hemp) or the microfibre on top (nearest to bumbum)?
which absorbs fastest? I've been having some wee leakage from my nature babies stuffables, but not my RaR or BG v4... trying to work out what we're doing wrong.
TIA!

It doesn't really matter with microfibre & bamboo as they are both quick absorbers. Hemp is the slow absorber so that needs to be at the bottom.

Microfibre absorbs fastest so should be on top.Saying that we got leaks when using it as although it absorbs quickly it doesn't hold liquid well so liquid squishes back out more easily than from bamboo or hemp.We use bamboo in our pockets with hemp underneath as hemp absorbs more slowly than bamboo.

We put microfibre on top.
