I was looking for the most trim cloth solution for my son possible. I wanted his clothes to fit as if he was wearing a disposable diaper. I battled between these inserts with Thirsties wraps and applecheeks pockets. After actually using both, these won by a long shot. I wanted to have the moisture whisked away from his skin while having the absorbency of hemp and these truly are perfect. One can last him 5 hour plus and he’s definitely a heavy wetter. I also have the applecheeks bamboo inserts, I like them but these have become my favorite go-to day or night. I followed the advice seen in another review and boiled them about 10-15 mins then washed with my other diapers in hot water and heavy load setting. Also for size, I currently have him in a size 2 wrap with the small inserts since he is 15lbs but only 2 months old.
I love these inserts. Very simple to use, extremely absorbent, and are so soft!
These are great for the day time. I love that the soft part keeps the moisture off the skin. I even use some of the soft tops alone with the Hemp Prefolds for overnights (a good way to use the tops when the bottom part gets too worn out).
These have great absorbancy. I usually use them in a cover that has one more use before needing to be washed...usually poopies end up in the cover with this insert so I don't like to use with a newly cleaned cover that I can get a few uses out of with a fitted underneath. My only complaint is the buttons on both ends...that hard button pressed against their gentle baby skin leaves red marks. I have started tucking it under but it creates a really thick spot.
Thus was a reorder for me. My husband loves these. They are easy and keep her dry while being very absorbant!!
