I *think* the inserts that come with those are bamboo, so they actually can be.

yeah it is bamboo. The rest are microfiber on my list. I've been reading about bamboo so I figured I'd try before I bought a stack of them.

I didn't know that about microfiber thank you for that! I'm trying to absorb as much info as possible.

I wish they showed a picture of the inside. I wonder if it has the flap things.

I really love bamboo. I haven't tried their blend inserts yet, I didn't realize they were 2 layers of mf and 2 layers of bamboo when I bought them, so I am hoping they are just as good as the 3 layer bamboo. And, bamboo, the 3 layer ones, are super thin.

I am curious to know what the inside looks like as well.

Ah, I know they have bamboo snap ins, so I just assumed those were what they came with :oops:

Ah, hmmmm, that's interesting, wonder why they don't offer all the prints then.

Me too. I'll find out soon though. I've looked at almost every diaper the last 2 days on that site and the one I posted was the first picture I saw of an inside.

THAT'S SO SMART! She's so skinny, but keeps getting taller. She's in 24 month clothes but a lot of her shirts look like she's wearing a potato sack - they cover her belly but are so wide!

All the Alvas I have are pockets (I just bought a bunch because I don't have time to make bigger diapers for RJ right now). I don't think they make any that aren't pockets.
