We've always just CD'd during the day but I bought a bunch of inexpensive pocket diapers for use at night (in the middle of the night I just don't have the coordination/patience to deal with adjusting covers over prefolds, which is what we use during the day. 


DD is 4 months old and she really, really soaks through the mixes of prefolds and microfiber I've been using. No leaks, but they are sopping wet when I change her, usually after 5-7 hours of sleep. But at the same time the diapers are SO BULKY


Is hemp really all that? Thinking of investing in some Thirsties inserts...but wondering what else works.

I did use hemp. It was soaking too but was very absorbent.

Never found anything but 2 parters work at night. I like 2 bamboo terry squares, folded together as on nappy, and a wool nappy cover instead of PUL. Never failed me yet. Trying to boost pockets enough to last a night invariably puts them out of shape so you don[t get a good fit, so leaks

I really like a bamboo or bamboo hemp mix. They are so trim and really take it. All we use are pockets. I always have pants or shorts on my DD at night because she sleeps on her side and it seems to help the not so good fitting diapers stay snug.
I have 1 swaddlebees prefold/insert(?) not really sure because it was given to me. But I love it! I guess the company is now blueberry diapers, so I'm planing to add some of their hemp and bamboo to my stash.
ETA I like hemparoos too, but not as well as a bamboo terry.
