Do inserts and doublers need to be washed more than once before use? Does it make a difference if it is hemp doublers or microfiber towels on how they should be washed before using them?<br><br>
Another question about inserts and doublers....<br><br>
Do I need them for a newborn? We are going to be using PF with covers for the first few weeks until we feel more comfortable with CD'ing and to save money. i know I can use liners to help baby feel drier and I don't need inserts for PF w/covers but what about doublers?<br><br>
Thanks!<br><br>

Sorry I can't help u but I was hoping for the answer too! I have only used micro inserts and used happy heinys but they seem to leak pretty easily. Is is the dipe or the kind of insert?<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:

microfiber wash once and your good to go <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> Hemp will need several possibly up to 10 good washes but I try for at leat 3-5 just know they will get better with time.<br><br>
As for will you need doublers for newborns I think overall no newborns just go through tons of diapers its just what they do <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> . However some newborns are super pees all that mamma milk <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> I think a few doublers might not be a bad idea to have.

I think that doublers are kind of a waste in the newborn stage because they poo so much and are never in a dipe for long anyway! Maybe after 2 months. I boil my new hemp stuff because it takes so many washes for them to be ready and I always have just a few things. You can't really prep them with other things....
