Fitted with soakers HELP!

I just purchased a fleece soaker & am going to order a couple wool soakers to try for at night. What should I put under them? Fitteds? If so, what brand?

Right now I mostly have pocket dipes...microfiber inserts :/ I am wanting to switch to hemp!

TI!

I would recommend fitteds, especially Squishy Baby Diaper Company on hyneacart or sbish obf or hlc/snapless. Squishy Baby Diaper Company should be restocking her snapped fitteds later this month.

Re: Fitted with soakers HELP!

It seems that a lot of fitteds are bamboo. We use Sbish snapless at nights with no problems with leaking or washing. The only hemp one I can think of is Kissaluvs, but I haven't tried them. Or Cricketts, but those are discontinued but can be found on fsot

We use SBish at night under wool. I have been looking at Babykicks fitteds and they are hemp. Also Pooters and Babee Greens also have hemp blend fitteds.

Amp makes a hemp fitted.

But hemp is not very soft (IMO). Might be uncomfortable for extended wearing at night time, absorbent oh yes soft and squishy... Not so much.

But fitteds and wool are awesome.

Re: Fitted with soakers HELP!

Prefolds are nice under a soaker; if you want them to have the absorbency of a squishy fitted, just add a hemp or bamboo doubler with at least 3 layers. Fitteds are really easy though. I love Bugga Bugga Boutique, Little Boppers, Bumstoppers, Gaia's Treasures, and Forty41

So it sounds like hemp would be good inside a pocket for absorbency since its not the softest? I've been doing bg's for the past 3 years with my son but I feel like there's so much more to explore with dd!

Yes, a hemp booster inside a pocket would be a good choice! Hemp is also pretty thin so it won't add much bulk either.

Yes I was using a 5 layer hemp jersey insert and a 4 layer bamboo insert in a pocket and they got me through all night (about 10hrs) whereas a disposable would leak.

When my lo started sleeping on her side this no longer worked so we went to fitteds and wool.
