I like fleece or flannel for my liners (nice and soft against baby's bum). And MF for my inserts. Hemp works great for soakers.

I like fleece for my liners since it helps keep him dry. Although know some people prefer suede cloth.

I also like zorb, prefolds and help for my soakers/doublers.

We use a combo of hemp, zorb and bamboo for inserts/doublers/boosters. We have some fleece liners that we use on occasion.

I prefer hemp and bamboo, since they're more absorbent than microfiber. Microfiber can absorb but when baby/toddler sits down on it, it can be pushed out and leak, kind of like a sponge. But it does tend to be soft and squishy, like a sponge, too, so I use my BG micro liner(s) for just around the house, when I can change it after just a little while. That's our experience, anyway, with our heavy-wetting toddler. I use a hemp doubler sometimes when I think extra will be needed, and we've been happy with it. Sometimes I use the BG newborn micro insert as a doubler, folded inside our inserts (we use mainly ones that you fold into thirds), since it's small.

When I started using pockets, I talked to the maker of one of the pockets we use (AMP--love it!). She said that different people prefer different inserts for different reasons, and suggested that we try a few of each. I'm glad we did--we found what works for us, but what works for someone else might be really different. Maybe you could get one or a few of each and try them? They're usually not too expensive individually. Just a thought--good luck, mama!
