inserts advice

I just started by stash and have a few questions about what to use for added absorbency. For the Fuzzibums NBs, what do you use in place of the microfiber insert? I ordered some Hemp Babies inserts, but I think that they look too big. Maybe they will shrink when I wash them? Also, did you add anything to your BG NBs or elementals? It seems like the NB ones will not be absorbent enough, but I have no idea, since I am a FTM. Thanks!

Re: inserts advice

  • I have never CDd a nb but had 2 newborns and you change so often that I think personally I will be ok with the absorbancy of the FB and BG xs diapers. I have some of both and yes the BGs look like they wont absorb much but my babies grow fast so I will most likely not need them longer than 3-4 wks. The MF insert with the FBs looks fine to me for the first month. Sometimes you change, feed and change a diaper in an hour. I think you shouldnt invest in too much, just some extra nb PFs just in case. 


  • We started using our BG's when DD was 6 weeks old. We used just the newborn insert for about 3 months before we had to start using the one size insert. It was enough.

    I didn't use the newborn elementals, but with a newborn you are changing them so often (at least every 2 hours at the start) that you don't have to worry about a diaper absorbing a ton.

  • NB pretty much never stop pooping, so you don't have to worry about how much diapers absorb. You are basically changing them every 2 hours at least. I think our record was 6 changes in an hour. Thank goodness we used cloth!
