Hemp boosters are generally considered the most absorbent especially since they ‘hold’ moisture well when squeezed. Hemp boosters are very useful for nights and for when baby gets a little older and output increases. Either lay it flat along the length of the nappy, or fold it over to target absorbency at the front for a boy or between the legs for a girl.
Sold individually. Measures 12 x 27 cm. Needs up to 8 washes before it reaches full absorbency. Can be tumble dried on a low heat (can help to soften the fabric after washing).
Hemp is the most absorbent type of booster (and slightly less bulky than bamboo) which makes it a popular choice. However while it has a high capacity it does not absorb as quickly as other boosters. With this in mind, to prevent leaks always place the hemp booster furthest from baby’s bottom so that a faster absorbing microfibre/bamboo/cotton insert acts a first line of defence to quickly absorb the liquid, with the hemp booster behind it to provide the high absorbent capacity.
