Inserts

I'm looking for best fabric for an insert, and best brand. Something not too expensive. I'm hoping to use size 1 applecheeks and size 1 sunbaby. I'd like to use them as Ai2's.

Re: Inserts

  • If you're looking for them as AI2, then I guess you mean you just want to lay it in, right? No microfiber then, as it can't touch baby's skin. Probably hemp, charcoal or bamboo. I'm sure the other ladies will have more informed answers, though.
  • I'm making mine with a flannel microfibre and Terry layer for an absorbent insert to use wih a flat. I'm new to this but with all my research this is what I've decided on.

  • Yes I just want to lay it on top, not stuff it. I want something trim and yet really absorbant. I've heard microfiber can have stink issues, how about blends?
  • I made a hemp bamboo blend insert. We use them for night on top of the pocket.

  • I have mostly microfiber and haven't had any stink issues. I have a few hemp (they're almost always hemp/cotton blends) that I've used with my best bottom cover. It's the only one I've ever had a stink problem with (ammonia). Someone else said the same thing, but again, it was specifically about a Best Bottom insert.

    The hemp ones are really trim, though. I've been wanting to try charcoal, but since my microfiber and hemp work fine I don't really need to spend the money.


  • I have never had a problem with stink in my microfiber.

  • Does it matter(as far as stink) what soap I use? Also I have a front load washing machine.
  • I have a front loader. Rockin green didn't work for us but ecos does. We have also used country save and liked that.
