Increase absorbency!


Yeah... I'm one crazy CD mama and I won't stop experimenting with the CD and inserts that I have. You got to be more creative if you ever find that the fitted that you have is not absorbent enough and reuse whatever you have in the stash.

Shown here are two not so absorbent fitted for my dd (which may happen to be very absorbent for some babies) with GAD hemp insert wrapped at the outer layer, then cover them up in wool soaker or any diaper cover.

I used to put hemp little weeds in trifold inside the fitted but I think in long term usage will cause damage to the leg casing elastic and thus you will have loosen leg casing for next child. Unless the fitted is still very roomy then you can use the insert inside the diaper. Specially thanks to Rebecca on this idea... and those fitted alone originally will last about 3 hours for my dd but after boasting them can last for another 3-4 hours.

Not everyone will like this idea, especially on smaller baby as it will be abit bulky so this is just a sharing for moms with heavywetter like mine. :) Probably will save you some money instead of keep on buying... (Hope I can stop too, LOL!)

sounds like a good idea. My night diapering nightmare is almost over now that I've found the woolies and a few very good (to us) fitted ;)

glad it worked for you too :)
I learnt from other heavywetter babies' mums too on the local Aussie nappy forum.

i do that a lot too, wool over hemp.

But strange, isnt it? Motherease Sandy had rave reviews on diaper pin on how absorbant it is. But it doesnt look very absorbant to me, either that or En En is a super heavy duty wetter

ATP, in fact it's not super absorbent otherwise I won't need to boast too... hehe... but it's more absorbent that DB bamboo and I like it as it doesn't retain smell and easy to wash.
