What natural fiber to stuff pockets with?

I want to get rid of our MF because I hate it, but I haven't found anything to use instead. We have some bamboo inserts, but I am not impressed with them. I was considering PFs but they look really bulky. I use mediums right now. Would a preemie or newborn size work? DS is 17 months and about 22-23 lbs at best.

Does anyone have any other suggestions (besides hemp babies, I could kick myself for selling them and I am too cheap to buy them again).

Flats are just as absorbent as prefolds but trimmer IMO.

I love stuffing my pockets with Diaper Rite large flats.

Snap-ez Hemp inserts are my favorite followed by unbleached cotton prefolds
