I just got our first bamboo fitted yesterday (from Momufactured at www.necessitae.com ). I can't believe how soft this knit is!! I've been making everyone that's been over pet it . Now, I don't even have a babe to put it on yet, and I'm wondering if I should order more bamboo diapers. If you have any, how are they holding up? How's the absorbency, etc..?

TIA!

I love bamboo. It is so absorbant and soft. I don't have any actual bamboo diapers, just a few Luxe with bamboo soakers and I love them. The most absorbant diapers we have.

*swoon* We LOVE our bamboo! So soft, so trim, and so absorbant. My 2 cents....our bamboo is 10 times better than hemp, without the stink and extra cushy! I just made Bella some yummy bamboo velour side aplix aio's that are to DIE for

While we're on the subject of bamboo--- can someone tell me where I can get front-snapping bamboo fitteds besides Sugar Plum Baby? (That's all I've found so far).

Plus they all seem to be around $20. Are there any cheaper fitteds made with bamboo, or should I expect the price to always be around $20 because of the cost of the fabric?

I personally prefer the velour 3inclothdiapers, I would expect to pay about $20 for a bamboo fitted, the fabric is so hard to aquire I know that www.babyoftheworld.com had some bamboo terry front snap or aplix. I have not visited there in a while but that is where I had my first bamboo experience, it was love at first wash

Here are a couple WAHMs that I know of who carry front snap bamboo:
FMBG
Baby of the World

I'll ask around.

I think Luscious Basics is making prefolds out of bamboo.
