Dry touch, they stayed softer than my bamboo, (maybe I don't know how to keep bamboo soft), I've used the dry touch for 2.5 years in a small rotation and they are a workhorse in my opinion. The bamboo that I had was luxurious at first, maybe I just need ecover.

I like the bamboo, but I just don't like microfiber at all. Almost everything I have is cotton, hemp or bamboo. Super absorbent, too!

My favorite insert is the Thirsties hemp/cotton. That lasts us the longest. It doesn't snap in but it works amazingly well.

I prefer bamboo, but I really don't care for microfiber.

Re: Softbums mamas

I dont have many drytouch pods bc DS1 was a hw and the bamboo contained it. DS2 can wear a large bamboo 4-5 hours before its soaked an OS bamboo overnight, and the drytouch large pods he can wear for 3-4 hours easily. However, I love the trimness of the bamboo with the added absorbtion, but its not staydry so I top ours with fleece liners.
But I like having both for different scenarios.. lol HTH

Thanks mamas. I have both OS super dry touch and bamboo. I need more but cant decide which. I think I'm going to go with dry touch since they are 1/2 the price and the super drytouch held my daughter through the night, (11 hrs).

I had trouble getting the thick bamboo velour inserts clean. Much preferred DryTouch.

I worry about that too. I have had issues with bamboo in the past with my other kids.

I love Softbums, but just use Omni's and stuff with Joey Bunz Hemparoos! Work great for us!
