I would like to make an overnight insert using Zorb II material.

Does anybody know how many layers I will need for a toddler? I have looked online at the few retailers that sell inserts with Zorb II and they have 3-4 layers with either a bamboo or suede cloth top layer.

Will that be enough for a toddler who sleeps 11 hours at night (mostly on his belly)? I have no idea if he is a fast or slow soaker. The disposable diaper (size 5) he wears now is usually pretty wet in the morning but does not leak.

I think Zorb II already contains bamboo... last I knew, it was basically a quilted sandwich of microfiber in between 2 layers of bamboo jersey. So it is safe to go against the skin as is.

I personally did not find it as magically absorbent as I'd hoped, but it is very trim and fast absorbing. I imagine you could do 3-4 layers and that would be plenty. I would not stitch them all together though, it would make it hard to wash clean. I would do a large piece with stitch lines to help folding, that folded up in 2-3 layers. Then you could try the overnight diaper with 1 three layer or 2 two layer inserts.

Hope that helps and good luck!

Will the bamboo on the Zorb wick moisture away from the skin? Because the diaper will be on him for 11 hours I'd hate to think that all that moister would just sit there.
