Fav AIO made with bamboo or hemp?

I've only tried GroVia AIOs and Blissful Booty AIOs. I am researching AIOs that are made with something besides cotton or MF (or microterry which I assume is the same?).

This is going to be for my 2 year old for naps. I'm still considering Flips but she has such mushy poops still, I am wondering if an AIO would be easier. I need something more absorbent than cotton though.

So, let me know what you like!

Sorry, just to clarify, what is your favorite AIO made from either bamboo or hemp?

I like bamboo for day wear and a cotton/ hemp blend with bamboo for nights.

I personally don't like hemp. I find it too stiff when it gets wet. Bamboo, though, I do like that. Very absorbant.

Really? I found the opposite. My bamboo gets hard (obf, not my obv... Thats stsys squishy soft) and my hemp stays fairly soft.

Peachy Greens -- they're a combo of cotton and bamboo. Not sure if that's exactly what you're looking for but I LOVE them for my 10 month old. I find them easy to spray poo off of, too.

I've spent the last hour and half searching online and those were the ones I'm most seriously considering! I like the looks of Grasshopper diapers but the shipping from Canada would add quite a bit of extra cost. Peachy Greens look to be my second favorite, as much as I can tell from looking online.

I definitely need it to be more absorbent than GroVias. I wonder if the blend would offer that much more absorbency?

Re: Fav AIO made with bamboo or hemp?

Are there just not that many out there? I want to say the only ones I've found are Peachy Greens (bamboo and cotton), Grasshoppers (bamboo and cotton) and Bottombumpers (which looks to be mostly cotton with one top layer of bamboo velour).

The rest are either microfiber or cotton.

Elementals are our favorite. They are cotton but much more absorbent for my daughter than GroVia, Bottombumpers or Peachy Greens.
