As my journey into the world of diapering continues, I am learning how to leverage the BabyKicks hemp inserts.
So far I have found that they make my stockpile of old all-in-ones work better, and if I fold one into a regular pre-fold, they help keep Prospector dry during nap time. Also, if he has an especially messy diaper that I would normally want to pre-rinse before throwing it into the washer, I can usually get away with rinsing the insert.
One of the BabyKicks families uses Joey-Bunz in their overnight disposable diaper- it draws the moisture away from the baby and helps her sleep through.
I went over to BabyKicks and had the good folks there explain the difference between the two types of Joey-Bunz.
The traditional Joey-Bunz is made of six layers of hemp/cotton jersey that are all sewn into one piece. It’s very slim and really absorbs well. I’ve used it in prefolds, all-in-ones, a disposable diaper, and once I threw it into a plastic diaper cover (kind of a new twist on the old rubber pants) when I was in a hurry. It worked well for each occasion.
The Premium Joey-Bunz looks like two traditional inserts sewn together at the top. The “towards the baby” surface is made of fleece. This fleece acts to draw moisture into the core of the insert and keep the baby’s skin dry. I have only started to try these, so I will keep you posted on how well they work and some good applications to use them.
