BGE for heavy wetter
Do the BGE work for a heavy wetter without a booster? I am debating between these & BG 4.0 :thumbsup:

Never had a leak with either one. Once I put a thin hemp booster in the middle of the layers, I think it was hemp babies little weeds or a HH hemp insert--not the big one but the one that goes in the big one. I really did not need it. My only concern would be night or long rides with no stay dry in BGE.

I used my BGE on my heavy wetter, but I had to change every 2 hours for sure.

My son isn't a very heavy wetter and they didn't quite get us through nights, without a doubler.

We don't have a problem with cotton next to the skin through nights or car rides, FWIW. In 2 1/2 years our LO hasn't needed anything else; not many babies really do, IMO.

I think they're good because it doesn't need to wick, which can be a problem with heavy and fast wetters, but to me it would be a pain to use with a doubler if you needed it. Unlike the pocket which you could add however much you wanted

That's all I used on my now 3 year old when she was in diapers. They never leaked with us and she was a heavy wetter. I was amazed at how trim yet absorbent they were lol!

Peachy greens are very trim and comfy and dry quick! We use sprout ups

Re: BGE for heavy wetter
You have to change pretty often with BGE if heavy wetter.. I like the fit and trimness, but personally I would probably just go with 4.0 and get some hemp inserts to put in with the microfiber one. That would probably be way more absorbant, IMO.
