What is the best most absorbent doubler?
 
We are flat converts :lostit: DS goes to bed in a swaddlebees bamboo flat and they are really absorbent but not enough on their own. I don't want to add a ton of bulk to his diaper. So in your experience, what is the most absorbent but trim doublers. :goodvibes:

I can't say I've had to try had to try a lot but I like the joey bunz hemp inserts. :)

Also in my recent absorbancy testing lately I discovered that the tiny grovia cotton doublers actually held more than the joey bunz small hemp and the same as the med!

I've had really good luck stuffing our night diapers with a geffen baby hemp insert. So trim and absorbant.

This. Or one of their absorbers. Their stuff is so nice!

Others - Softbums Bamboo mini or hemp baby doublers

We use hemp babies. I find hemp and bamboo to be the most absorbent.

I love using small flats folded into the size of a doubler or close to it. They don't seem at all bulky to me and hold a ton. :)

ETA: they are more work since you have to fold them, but there is a great tutorial on here somewhere on how to sew them in a couple of places to keep them doubler sized.

I would go with hemp. Thirsties hemp doublers, hemp babies or geffen baby are all very nice & absorbent!

I don't have any hemp because of washing issues but I love my Swaddlebees bamboo doublers. I can use one of those inside a kitefolded birdseye flat and be good all night long. ( I don't have a heavy wetter though)
