Re: Newbie wondering trimmest cloth option?

Anyone tried JoeyBunz premium hemp inserts? Can they be used alone as inserts inside of a cover or are they better for stuffing pockets?

Re: Newbie wondering trimmest cloth option?

After CDing 4 1/2 yrs and counting and trying many many things the trimmest things we have tried are pinned flats (small, medium, large depending on how big your kiddo is) w/ PUL, BGE w/ snaps, and BestBottoms w/ hemp inserts. The flats and BGE are our favorite for both 3 month old and 20 month old

I know others pad fold, but since DS was a mover, I wrapped them around and snappi'd so I knew they would stay in place. I also the loved the versitility of flats. I went thru a couple differnt folds, and hope to use them again on the newbie in August!

I use FB perfect size with a hemp insert.

Kite-folded, pinned flats with a sized Thirsties cover or a very lightweight wool soaker are our choices when we want to go as trim as possible.

I like trim too. The most trim dipes that i have used are Peachy Green, Grovia and Fuzzibunz Elite. The most trim of those three are the Elites. BGE and Simplex are relatively trim as well.

I would only use the hemp inserts as a stuffer. They do make hemp prefolds and flats, which would provide better containment in a cover.

I usually use the gcloth because they look nice. : ). But if I'm going to be leaving the house for a couple hours or it's naptime I use a gflapper from the nappyshoppe. They have more layers of hemp and are very absorbent. They also make other material options like bamboo or cotton.

Grovia aios and bumgenius elementals are pretty trim. Take out the extra soaker in the grovia for a smaller baby.
