charcoal inserts really all that?

so i found a coop selling charcoal bamboo inserts for $1.28 each, is that a good deal? i'm also wondering if they're worth it, right now i double stuff my pockets with 2 minky inserts (from the FB elites) and was wondering if one of these charcoal ones would replace me having to do 2 every time. are they really soft? super absorbant? can they be laid in a pocket as a quick doubler/next to babies skin? thanks!!!

Yes!
That is a good price.
We were using 2 inserts during the day and 3 at night. We now use 1 CBI during the day and 2 CBI at night. So much easier to stuff.
DS sleeps 10-12 hours and no leaks.
They are super soft and can be used in covers against baby's skin.
Plus they are very trim. When we put DS in his first diaper with 1 CBI we were shocked at how tiny his booty really is!
I have replaced all my inserts with CBI and so far my only regret is that I hadn't switched sooner.

I bought some through a coop and just sold them this past week after trying to like them for the past 3 months. They just weren't absorbent enough for us. Trim- Yes! Cheap- Yes! But absorbancy didn't come close to my LL flats padfolded. I had to use 2 if I wanted a diaper to not leak, and then they were just as bulky as a flat. I was able to use a flat and CBI together at night without leaks and it was trimmer than 2 flats stuffed in a pocket.
