Nana's bottoms opinions

Ok, so I used to get nana's bottoms several years ago. I'm having another baby and wanted to know if the quality is still the same. I will use pockets for naps and overnights, but would like to use these for daytime.

Also, she now has an option for the soaker...hemp, sherpa or birdseye...which is the most absorbant? Hemp? But I don't want to deal with stink. Any thoughts?

I love mine. Mine have a pocket in the back to stuff with more absorbency if needed. I have bamboo soakers & birdseye soakers & both are very absorbent-can't tell a difference, but bamboo takes longer to dry. I have suedecloth inners & birdseye inners & poop comes off of the suedecloth easier. I destashed a lot of my pockets for these, because they are wonderful! Aplix is super strong & fit is great. HTH!

Thanks! I had no idea she'd make them with a pocket in the back. I will def. ask for that when i'm ordering.

We really liked the smalls we had, they fit my DD great after her cord fell off and up until a bit past 6 months. They do take a long time to dry though. I've seen some say adding a pocket and turning them inside out makes the dry time less.

I love them. I just got 12 more last month to add to the 20 we had. I have mostly birdseye soakers and insides but a few bamboo also and both are great. She can leave a pocket in back and she will make a custom rise as well upon request. They are great quality, a great fit and you get great customer service!!

Re: Nana's bottoms opinions

Thanks! I'm super excited to use them on my new baby.

Any idea if I should just start with smalls instead of newborns if my babies are almost 9 lbs. at birth?
