what do you use to stuff your pockets? need advise!

I have been using mt inserts for my pockets but must admit they are just not doing the trick for me anymore. My dd is 5 months and she almost always wicks/leaks just between the thighs. Its almost as if the mt bunches and leaks right through. I dont like plain hemp either, similar problems with wetness and pretty stiff.

I am toying with trying some prefolds, but have to admit complete ingnorance here.

What do you guys suggest I use to stuff the pockets with?

Thanks!

I either use a store bought gerber prefold with hemp wrapped up in it or MF towel with hemp.

we always use CB mf insert (one for day 2 for night) LOVE CB inserts!
we have used PF's in the past - both the Gerber and cpf's - both have worked, but I don't have a heavy weter

but are you sure that your problem is the insert?

I like GAD pockets with GAD inserts topped with a strip of microfiber, or a Dimple Cheeks pocket with a BBL hemp doubler wrapped in a MF towel.

I absolutely love my Cotton Babies micro inserts or use tri-folded micro towels w/a hemp insert.

i also Love the CB inserts . I have some microfiber inserts from KellysCloset i also like alot. they are a little thinner but are more contoured shape and seem to fill the pockets up real good.

I use a microfiber towel wrapped around a hemp insert. I have used trifolded infant cpfs and it worked good. My girls are heavy wetters.
