Can you put a Jam Tots Hemp, or Jumparoos hemp against the skin?

Is hemp okay against the skin? Should a get a layer of cotton (premie prefold or something for faster absorption? I'd be sticking them in Flips covers... I mean I could stick them under the staydry inserts, but I'd kind of like for him to feel wet.

Hemp is fine against the skin, most hemp is blended with cotton, so you should be fine with that approach!

I never have, for the main reason that hemp absorbs slowly. It can hold a ton, but it sucks it up slowly. So you use something that absorbs quickly near the child and then the hemp farther away. That was my reasoning, anyway.

If you are worried, I'm sure putting hemp next to the skin wouldn't be yucky like with microfiber next to skin.

We regularly do hemp against the skin with no issues. And it absorbs great w/ my heavy wetter.
