Pocket Diaper help

This is my first attempt at making a pocket diaper. Actually, any diaper for that matter. I have it stuffed with a soaker from another pocket diaper I purchased but it is not absorbant enough. My dd is only a month old but a heavy wetter. How does everyone make/ what do you use for your soakers? I do not want to use prefolds in pockets.

I've also heard great things about bamboo & a material called zorb. you can also double up on the inserts you currently have. nighttime dipes don't really need to be trim, right?

Re: Pocket Diaper help

She stays pretty dry at night, but soaks the first half of the day. Diaper is completely saturated every hour from 8 am to about 1 pm.

I had bought some hemp fabric jersey fabric but I don't know that it will be absorbant enough for her. I'll give the bamboo a try too. I'm just so excited to have finally made a diaper!!!
