Charcoal Bamboo Inserts / Diapers...Love? Hate?

I'm looking for opinions on charcoal bamboo...has anyone been using this for an extended period of time? Does it hold up, or fall apart? Is it super absorbent? Does it help with the ammonia smell in the morning?

I'd love to hear your experience on this wonder fabric! I've read all the great things it has to offer but can't find any info from users first hand. Thanks mamas!

Hmmmm I have never used charcoal bamboo! What are you using now? I noticed I haven't had ammonia issues since switching to cotton...maybe start simple?

I'm planning on using it in my nighttime cloth diapers that I sell so I just want to get an idea of long standing experience

I only have a few inserts with charcoal bamboo (Rockabums) but it is just in the stay dry layer, the absorbent part is microfiber.
