What do you guys think of Bamboo doublers? Are they better than hemp? I've read they don't retain the stink as much. Opinions? "Sew is your Baby" has 4 layer Bamboo doublers on special right now and they are still accepting the Cloth Diaper Hunt coupon code for an additional 20% off (also free shipping). Just wanted to see what you ladies thought first. Seems like a pretty good deal though.

I have both and I like both. I find hemp has a greater long-term holding capacity but bamboo is really nice against the skin. I use hemp at night and bamboo against the skin and during the day. Some people report more washing problems with hemp. I don't as long as I don't have too many layers. I had some Thirsties large hemp inserts that were too big and thick, a huge pain to wash and dry, but all my other hemp stuff is fine.

we have bamboo and hemp but all of our hemp are mixed with cotton. I think both work well and we dont have stink issues with either. We use hemp/cotton overnight inserts for night time and they hold all night long with no leaks.

I have had and liked both. The only reason I switched from hemp to bamboo is hemp gives Kaiden a rash when wet and bamboo doesn't.
