!!Please help me choose a diaper lining ASAP!!
 
I am converting some of my premium prefolds into Turned PreFitteds and am trying to decided if I want to line them with Cotton Velour, Organic Cotton Velour, Bamboo Organic Velour or Bamboo French Terry.

The last two choices are significantly more expensive so I am trying to find out if it is worth the $$$. :headscratch:

How do these four options hold up over time?

Do any seem to hold on to stink?

Are they equally soft or close enough to being so?

Please share your thoughts because I would like to finalize my order and mail my PFs tomorrow.

Thanks :giggle2:

I love bamboo french terry for inserts (very absorbent and trim) but it not nearly as soft as velour. Since it's going to be against the baby's skin, I'd go with one of the velours. I voted for the bamboo organic velour since I'm a huge bamboo fan (very absorbent, and eco friendly). But not sure how it compares with the other two velours. I'm sure other mamas who know more than me will weigh in.

I'd go with the organic velour or terry. I do find bamboo holds smell more so than cotton, but i still prefer bamboo.

i said ocv.. bamboo is nice bt its spendy and doesnt stay soft long enough to make it worth it imo! if you do go with the bamboo go with one that has a high cotton ratio in it cuz it will stay nicer longer...

I said obv just because it is soft. You can find it on hyena cart for 10 bucks a yard which doesn't seem overly pricey to me.
