What's your favorite insert?

H folks!

I have a few pocket diapers that I've bought at seconds sales - BG 4.0 and swaddlebees econappi. Bt they came without inserts, and I'm wondering what you all like. This is for daytime, and I want something TRIM - I don't love the huge bubble butt. I do have a few joey bunz hemp, which seem awesome, but I'd love other recommendations. DS is 3 weeks / 10 lbs, and I prefer natural fibers. Thanks!

Thirsties inserts are nice. I use them in night diapers. No microfiber to worry about not washing well.

Honestly I have tried (and sewn) every combo under the sun. The most trim solution that really holds up is folded flats. They're cheap, easy and work as well as anything out there. I also use prefolds for longer trip etc once they are older, but they are a bit bulky.

They're not really trim on small babies, but I love Flip Organics. Although the GroVia Prefold was really absorbent too and is much less expensive. (I was a tester)

Re: What's your favorite insert?

I would never buy Flip organics for a 10lb baby, they would be crazy bulky. I found them to be too bulky until about 20 lbs.

I like applecheeks bamboo inserts, they have good absorption and are pretty trim.
