Re: Any chance a bamboo flat or prefold could absorb near 20oz?

Thanks! i actually "trust" hemp more because I have used it. I didn't know they made hemp flats and prefolds. I have an email out the company

So do you think Hemp is more likely to get closer to 20oz absorbency?

Part-time EC since 12 months & Daytime PL at 26 months) Checkout my absorbency tests. Thoughts on how long a cloth diaper REALLY lasts. Thoughts on Yeast , here, here, here & here.
