Insert Questions...

Okay so these are the inserts I have:

cottonbabies micro
cottonbabies little weed
fuzi bunz store micro
hh stuffin
hh micro
swaddlebees hemp
joey bunz hemp
kissaluv doubler

I have mostly cottonbabies micro inserts. At night, I'm working on combinations. Which combinations (inside of FBs) would you recommend? And if It's a hemp/micro combo, is it better to have the hemp or the micro on top?

TIA!

Re: Insert Questions...

Are you asking for at night, during the day, or both? I'll just give you my system for my heavy wetter....

We use HH's primarily, with a Joey Bunz wrapped in a microfiber towel (from Walmart) for during the day. It's overkill, but I've NEVER had a leak...when I used just micro or just hemp alone, leak, leak, leak!

At night, I use the next size up HH, two next size up Joey Bunz, both wrapped in a microfiber towel. Both inserts are about 90% soaked when she gets up in the morning, but she has always been dry with that system. Kinda bulky, but it works.

When you pair MF and Hemp, it's best to put the MF on top. MF aborbs quicker, whereas hemp absorbs more. So, the pee gets "grabed" by the MF and "stored" by the hemp. Does that make sense?

Cottonbabies MF are the best MF inserts we have, but I like the MF towel for trimness.

I haven't used the other inserts you mentioned, so I can't help there. Sorry!

Hope you can find a combo that works. Took quite a while for us...lots of trial and error...and wet clothes.

Good luck!

The hemp and microfiber combo will probably work best. The HH hemp stuffins or Joey Bunz as the hemp layer with a CB Micro over it is my preferred combo. Good luck finding what works for you.

Re: Insert Questions...

I have bigger weeds as my main overnight insert, they are super absorbant hemp fleece( the most absorbant hemp). For a heavy wetter I would put a CB MF insert on top of a little weeds. As pp said mf absorbs faster and hemp absorbs more. The mf also helps the pee spread to the back of the hemp insrt. HTH and GL w/ your nighttime diapering.

Re: Insert Questions...

It's better to have the micro on top because it absorbs super fast whereas the hemp holds more. So I always use the microfiber to pull the urine into the hemp instead of the other way around. KWIM?

Re: Insert Questions...

My personal fave for FB's are Nurtured Family inserts. One has always been enough for daytime use. I have also used 2 MF towels in a FB and that seems to work well, too.

I haven't tried CB inserts for nighttime because I have a leak proof combo that I LOVE. It's a babykicks (joeybunz) wrapped in an MF towel. I have used that in FB's and BG's. No leaks ever and we sometimes go 10-11 hours. I use BG's at night now, but used FB's when I started and never had any issues.

I do have some CB inserts now and I use one for daytime and that's always plenty for my super soaker

I also have some contoured HH microterry inserts that I couble up in my SEZ pockets and that works awesome for us! I sometimes use one of those with a Babykicks, too. I change it up all day depending on what's coming up... an outing, a nap, think he's going to poop, etc.

Trial and error is how I learned what combo worked best for Noah
