Alva Bamboo Inserts

Couple of questions: What are the measurements of these, and how much do they absorb compared to a regular unbleached 4x6x4 prefold? Are they worth the price?

I have not used the Alva bamboo inserts, but when using pocket diapers, I have been MUCH happier with bamboo inserts than I was with microfiber. I would guess that they would hold more and be less bulky than a prefold.

I don't really like microfiber either, and I use prefolds or flats to stuff pocket diapers, or trifold into covers. I did end up finding dimensions on the website.

They measure 13.5 x 5 I can't comment on comparing it to prefolds, but i needful use 2 in the daytime and 3 at night. We use one softbums bamboo in the day and one softbums bamboo with a doubler at night.

I like my Alva bamboo inserts. Always trusted them to absorb well. The only issue I had is that because it's thin, it wouldn't always lay flat!

Re: Alva Bamboo Inserts

I bought some of them, and I love them. I borrowed a couple that are just mine. They are the best nursing pads ever for night time. I stick one in my sports bra before I go to sleep and don't have to worry about waking up in a pool of breast milk.

They work really well in a lot of diapers - I have used them in our Gdiapers for a super trim diaper, to layer in a pocket diaper, and to increase the absorbency in our Thirstie AIO's. For the price you can't beat them.
