Tell/spam me about hemp...

I'm very curious. I've never used it before (well, except for the hemp protein powder in ds's oatmeal ).

Re: Tell/spam me about hemp...

Hemp is VERY absorbant after you get it primed! I think hemp inserts/doublers are a must for a heavy wetter in cloth diapers. I prefer Happy Heiny's Stuffins inserts to any as I have a super soaker and they hold a lot.
Joey Bunz Hemp inserts don't work that well for us so I always suggest people try atleast one of each to see which hemp insert they prefer and works the best for their child.

Hemp NEEDS to be "primed" before use. Do not wash it with other diapers until it has been primed and all the oils are out of it. When you first received new hemp.. I always wash it in super hot water with 1/4 of the recommended amount of detergent for that load size. I then boil it for 15/20 minutes. I let it cool and rewash twice more. That is really fast at Priming the hemp. You can skip the boiling part, but you will need to do about 8 to 10 super hot washes to get them primed before using.

Good luck! Hemp really is great! You will also need to have a microfiber or Prefold insert on top of the hemp so that if you have a fast stream of pee coming... it can help catch it while the hemp soaks it in.
