I LOVE how trim they are though...another question I had about hemp was I heard it was very absorbent but it doesn't wick moisture away like the Stay Dry inserts...so how long can a baby go in a diaper with a hemp insert?
I use BB with hemp also. The pilling is normal and no, it doesn't really go away. It doesn't bother me, though. They must be dried in the dryer though. Line drying makes them so crispy!
Yes, these are very trim! They are also quite absorbent. I get around the wicking thing by using a fleece liner over the insert. This helps to dispose of the poo as well. I bought some fleece at Wal-Mart and cut them to the size I wanted. Super cheap and does the trick!
How long you go between changes depends on the baby. My DD can go 2-3 hours quite easily in a BB hemp insert.
Good luck on your cloth diaper hunt!
