Do you know if the hemp is prewashed? I have washed and dried them twice, but want to use it tonight overnight. Does anyone know? How many times did you wash them before you used them?

it has to be prewashed - it would shrink and contort if it wasn't

They worked great for us - overnight - right out of the package!

and they worked great, then I used them again after another wash and they were even better! I do not prewash my hemp anymore as eventually they work better and I do not want to wear them out too much.......kwim?

Awesome! It's on him now, and he's asleep, so we'll see what happens between now and 7am!

So - how did it go last night?
I'm anxious to hear - since this is now our *only* fitted diapers!
(the all hemp fleece SOS) That's how much we them!
SUCH a difference from the knit/velour versions, for our super soaker! Plus, they're nice and stretchy so I can get the crossover tabs snapped around her - the others I can't stretch enough and I end up having a baggy waist.

Sorry - a little T! LOL!

It worked great! No leaks, and it wasn't super soaked. I guess my ideal would be the hemp SOS lined in fleece to keep his tummy feeling try, but I use a fleece topped doubler so that helps some. I used it with our Sugarpeas flannel wool cover, which I find too bulky for the day but has never failed us at night!

Now I'm going to have to go on the search for more. I've officially given up stalking (way too stressful for me!), so I will just have to wait to happen upon some (and learn to be patient)! But I am glad I have found an alternative to fuzzibunz at night. They work well and I will continue to use them until I get enough hemp fitteds, but I didn't like him being in PUL all night long. I really wanted him to have something more breathable at night.

YAY!

We use the SOS matching hemp doubler that is micro topped and it works great - it keeps the pee concentrated in that area, too.

I also LOVE my smjae doublers of the same construction - she makes contours as well that will keep his tummy more dry (contour doublers)
