Re: what is a good day absorbency?

well for a heavy wetter you can almost never have too much. i had some sbish fitteds that are, i believe, 8 or 9 layers without the extra doubler. they were amazingly absorbent, but they are a fitted so there is more absorbency. i was thinking about bamboo inserts also, and was thinking at least 6-8 layers for day. the softbums bamboo pods are 8 layers (and remember bamboo velour isnt very absorbent - its the fleece and french terry that will be absorbent). i tried the pods for about 3 hours (which is the longest ive had him in a diaper except overnight because he's such a heavy wetter) and the pod was soaked - but wasnt going to leak yet. so it depends on really how heavy of a wetter your dc is and how long you want to go between changes. bamboo velour will be a little catchy for the runny poo, yes.
