I love these inserts for my 6 month old. She's super tiny and one of these can last her overnight. For my extremely heavy wetting 23 month old toddler this insert works great as a top layer. I usually snap a hemp doubler underneath and he can wear it for several hours with no leaks.
They are very soft and a great value!

These are absolutely great. The entire Best Bottoms line is fantastic and I haven't had any leaks so far. I do wish they were a little more absorbant as my babies are heavy wetters and the liner is soaked when I change them every two hours. However, the shell does such a good job of preventing leaks anyways!

I decided to skip smalls and go with medium stay dry, but found that my large hemp inserts (after fully prepped) are roughly the same size and more absorbent than the medium stay dry. I do like that they keep baby's bottom dry, but these are definitely more prone to stink! In the future, I'll just purchase more large hemp inserts!

We love the stay dry inserts for every day diapering. Our daughter is a heavy wetter, so we also use the other materials, but these are great for her and so soft. They wash easily and dry quickly.

We primarily use these inserts with our Best Bottom diaper shells. We also bought the bamboo inserts, but the microfleece works soooo much better. We never have leaks, and the fleece on top wicks the moisture away much better than natural fibers. We intended to only use cotton/hemp/bamboo inserts, but we changed our minds after using the microfiber/microfleece. Coupled with a doubler, these make for bullet-proof nighttime diapers.

I still use the liners I have, I don't avoid them but I find myself reaching for a bamboo blend more often. Haven't had any leaks but they seem to fray around the edges quite quickly and get soaked pretty quickly too.

I do like other Best Bottoms inserts, but the stay dry microfiber ones are our least favorite. The material seemed to wear out quickly (because it is prone to build-up from our hard water more than our cotton/hemp inserts are, we were stripping these more which caused them to wear out much sooner). The stay-dry material also irritated my youngest daughter's sensitive skin so we couldn't use them at all on her. I love the Best Bottoms system overall, though; my husband likes that the inserts snap-in and stay in place better than in our Flips.

I like these inserts, I was surprised on how much they actually absorb since my son pees a lot. He’s 9 months old so he drink a lot of fluids. I change my son ever 3hrs maybe once a day I’ll leave the diaper on for 4 hrs nothing more than that, and What I love about these is that the bottom is completely wet but the top part stays nice and dry. What I also like Is that they don’t stain easily. I’ve had poop explosions and the most I’ve left them in the dirty laundry is one day w/poop stain. I was surprise how nicely the stains came off, what I do it put some all natural stain remover that is safe to use on baby clothes, and pretreat them before wash, I let them sit in hot water for about 5 min and them wash them with baby detergent and they’re still white! I love them I need to buy me some more!

I bought a few of the microfiber to supplement my hemp/cotton collection. The microfibers seem a bit flimsy and are much thinner than the hemp variety. After washing, they seem to pill a little and don't seem as sturdy as the hemp, though they do dry a bit faster. These will probably be good for wearing under smaller outfits to make the diaper trimmer or for naps to keep away the wetness.

The Best Bottom diaper covers are awesome because you can reuse the covers until they are soiled, and the inserts are really neat because you just snap 'em in. We have had compression leaks, but I know that this is a problem that all microfiber inserts have. They also have the tendency to bunch up in the middle since they're only held in place with 2 snaps- there's a lot of room for the inserts to wiggle around in there. This bunching also exacerbates the compression leak problem. Overall they are pretty good little inserts and easy to use, but we don't let our daughter wear the diapers for very long unless I want to clean up a leak. (I use 2 inserts per cover)

After trying both hemp and microfiber options, hemp wins. Hands down. Spend the extra money and invest in hemp, the thinner, more natural, less-likely-to-create-ammonia-burns, and more absorbent option. Hemp also helps children to transition to potty training because they can feel when they are wet.

I bought the best bottom cover a stay dry and a cotton insert so I could test out the system before making a large investment. And overall, I really like them.
The stay dry insert is very absorbent they come in three sizes so you don't have a super bulky diaper if you are wearing the smaller rise settings. The insert is nice and soft. I will mostly be using it for night time and longer errands, since it's a little thicker than the cotton insert is. Love that it snaps in and out easily. It's trimmer than the grovia ai2 system because the back of th insert isn't waterproof, but the cover wipes clean, so you actually end up being able to re use it more times before having to wash. The inserts are less expensive than other ai2 systems, even considering that you will end up needing three sizes to make it from birth to potty training, and you can spread out the cost since you don't need them all at once. I think this is going to be the system I end up with.
