Stuffing our pockets with microfiber has worked for us so far with very few issues. But we've reached the one year mark for most of our microfiber and it's just...old. Discolored, I'm having gradually more and more stink issues the past few weeks, I think they've just run out of life. So I'm looking at other options.
I would prefer natural fibers since I know they're easier to breathe life back into and we're about to start cding #2 alongside #1. I love hemp as a nighttime doubler, but I just haven't had good luck with it as a primary insert, dd pees too much at a time and it absorbs too slowly (which is why microfiber has worked so well for us so far). We're also on a bit of a budget crunch with #2 arriving in the next couple months, so if you can recommend something on the cheaper end that would be great as well!
