I'd love to help but DS is about 2 weeks out from his one sized diapers. I have lilhelper diapers. Some charcoal bamboo and some organic bamboo. From the reviews I read on their website it looks like the charcoal bamboo is more absorbant, people seem to like it for night diapers. The charcoal bamboo inserts are definitely thicker. Plus the charcoal bamboo is stay dry, which is nice for naps and night if being wet wakes LO up.

Thanks for the input! I'm looking at some inserts to use as doublers for my heavy wetter newborn, so stay dry is definitely a plus!
