Let’s Find Out What Our Nappy Experts Have to Say About Our Topic:  Top Tips For Modern Cloth Nappy Boosters and inserts: What you should know…

Emma from Wrap ‘Em (closed) recommends:

If using BBH Petites, buying additional inserts will extend your stash somewhat. The night boosters are great for boosting up bamboo fitteds or MagicAlls for night time use or use as extra inserts for Multifits. They can also be used as prefolds on small newborns or even as great cloths for soaking up spills or putting under the sheet of a toilet training toddler 🙂

Kendall from Australian Baby Supplies recommends:

Inserts and Boosters for pocket nappies can often be exchanged between brands. If necessary choose an insert that is more suitable for your environment i.e. if you live in a cold climate and drying is a concern choose a faster drying material like microfibre or a trifold rather than a multilayered bamboo booster/insert.

Melissa from Little Para Pants recommends:

I guess for me it comes down to fabrics. What do you want next to your baby’s skin? How long do you expect the nappy to be on? For something like a night nappy, bamboo is the most absorbent and very soft. If you’re looking for something that dries quicker, hemp is still very absorbent but quicker to dry than bamboo.

Charndra from Part Time Nappy Free recommends:

I am not an expert on these – which is why this question is here, and woo hoo I’m learning new stuff!

Nyree from Kodomo recommends:

Be careful of over-boosting pocket nappies, too much and you will cause a leg gape and possibly have some leaks. When you boost fitted nappies, place the booster on the outside of the nappy – you’ll get the extra absorbency without compromising fit around the legs.
