Best Pocket Diaper Inserts?

[deleted account] ( 18 moms have responded )

I use Fuzzi Bunz and the microfiber inserts that come with them are just not cutting it anymore (too many leaks). Does anyone have favorites? I love my Fuzzi Bunz, but need something way more absorbent. Thanks.

have you been doubling the micofiber and still had leaks? that is what happened to us....so i bought some hemp liners....they are my favorite when added to a micofiber. they are very absorbent, but also very pricey.  I recenty bought 12 of the rainforest babies 4 layer hemp/fleece liners. they are made especially for the fuzzi bunz, and instead of them being the size of a rectangle, they fully fill out the entire diaper. love them! i think they are 4.25/pc but well worth it to not have leaks every diaper change. he was wetting every outfit.  i still have to use disposables at nt, and he wet through occasionally.  we have a heavy wetter.  hope this helps.  I love the fuzzi bunz, but you have to play around with the inserts till you find what works.

Quoting Vanesa:



 Remember, they look huge when you get them and shrink a ton. They get more and more absorbant the more you wash it. Some even say you have to wash it 5 times before it's at it's most absorbant.






A good trick with the hemp is to boil them in a pot on the stove for 20 minutes before your 1st use to save on laundry costs and also to prevent the hemp oil which is initially in them from getting on the fleece layer of your pocket diapers as it can cause it to repel water rather than absorb it and make your diapers leak before the pee even gets to the inserts!

I love the swaddlebees econappies for their inserts which are hemp with microfibre section, they can be folded to the appropriate size and folded different ways for boys/girls depending on absorbency needed then put into the pocket or laid on top of shell (because of microfiber layer they are still comfy to baby) and they are super thin so my little guy can still maneuver in them.

I actually make a hemp fleece and bamboo velour insert.  I don't have listed right now on my site csue of internet issues, but you can see them in my Nifty Nappies that I have listed.  They are very trim and very absorbent!  I love them.  Both the hemp fleece and the bamboo velour are very soft.  a lucious fabric is the best way to explain it!

Yes, I am definitely doubling them, and sometimes use a plain birdseye cloth diaper folded in the pocket, too.  I have also been very careful about changing her every 2 hours (except at night)...but we still end up with leaks.  It would be nice to have inserts that fit the whole shape of the fuzzibunz, so I'll look at the ones you mentioned.  Thanks!

Oh yeah, I don't need liners with the Bumgenious bamboo fitteds. They are awesome! She has never leaked out of those and they are soo thin and soft!! Only $13 a piece, but you do need a cover. Bummi's whisper wraps make such cute designs that it could be fun.

I bought Joey's hemparoo liners (close to $6 a piece, ouch!) and I use the liner that came with the diaper AND the hemp liner every time. That works like a charm! Absolutely no leaks. My baby peed out of everything until I did this. The hemp liners are very thin so they aren't uncomfortable or bulky. I was bummed about the money part but if you use cloth diapers for over a year and with more kids, you're already saving thousands. And it is soo worth not having pee all over everything and having to wash clothes and sheets all the time. Not to mention they sleep better when they haven't peed all over themselves in the middle of the night. I've been there. So buy one hemp liner per diaper you own and add it for every single use. Remember, they look huge when you get them and shrink a ton. They get more and more absorbant the more you wash it. Some even say you have to wash it 5 times before it's at it's most absorbant. I used them right away and had success! I love them.



Good luck!

Are the bamboo prefolds bulky? I use IPF's at night and are too bulky for day wear but I am also looking for something more absorbant than the FB inserts. I actually just posted this same question on Babyfit.com boards.

Thank you so much for all your advice. I definitely want to try bamboo now! I looked at the Green Kids bamboo "boosters" online and they look like they would work great in addition to what I already have. Awesome!

bamboo is the most absorbent fiber, I use the prefold, fold it twice then into the pocket. I fold it diffrent width for different nappies, very handy.

I like either hemp inserts or the bumGenius inserts in my fb's. I bought extra bumGenius inserts (and great hemp ones) from http://babyworks.com and use them now instead of the fuzzibunz insert. They seem like the same material but for some reason the bg inserts absorb more, last longer and don't leak...
