ok my kids have been using chux for nappy liners like i use to,as we were able to get large sheets to cut up,well alas no more
so what do you use for nappy liners,i was thinking maybe squares of flannel may work
thank you in advanceMarch 2, 2010 at 5:08 am #455147
They reckon micro-fleece is good… haven’t tried it myself but a few other ladies using MCN’s reckon micro-fleece is good….March 2, 2010 at 5:35 am #455148
I actually don’t use a liner at all, I use the baby beehind fitteds so they have the booster inserts that clip in. Would love to hear what others are using as some of the staining we get is beyond belief! :confused:March 2, 2010 at 5:56 am #455149
Better than flannel because it doesn’t stain at all. Also, it’s hydrophobic – which means that when bubs wees, the wee goes THROUGH the fleece and into the absorbent part of the nappy – and then isn’t touching bubs bum any more. Yay for less nappy rash!
Also, most poo doesn’t stick to it – it will in most cases roll off into the toilet. If not, holding it in the loo while flushing is good too.
You can buy microfleece online from here http://www.nappiescovered.com.auMarch 2, 2010 at 6:03 am #455150
I used polarfleece. Is that like microfleece? I found it was good as I just bought a meter, which was cheap, and cut it into strips. No sewing and the fabric doesn’t need hemming. Yes, I often did the hold my finger on the flusher while swishing the liner in the bowl. Just make sure you have a bucket close by to hold it over as you transport it to the trough. I rarely remembered. :pMarch 2, 2010 at 6:54 am #455151
yeah microfleece is like polar fleece only it’s thinner and takes up less bulk. Might not mean a lot in a regular nappy but if you’re going for the trim look, it can be important! And coz it’s got a lower pile on it than polar fleece it cleans off that wee bit easierMarch 2, 2010 at 7:06 am #455152
You can use Microfleece no problems, getting a hold of it at this time of year is altogether another issue.
Try a nappy makers supplier like greenbeans or the cloth nappy shop in Brisbane. They will mail order anywhere.
I’ve been using the Johnsons nappy liners. They are like a chux and I wash and reuse them several times. One box of 100 has lasted me a bit over a year.March 2, 2010 at 9:29 am #455153
cool thank you
i have a new grandbabe due sept/oct,as well as 3 other new babes due in the next couple of months and they all want nappiesSeptember 19, 2011 at 3:10 am #455154
My husband made a home made version of a “little squirt” that attached to the toilet tap. By using this I never had to use a liner. Essentially, you wash the poo off straight away into the toilet, and then you dry pail the nappy until you have a bucket full to do a full load of washing.
I didn’t have one instance of staining in all the time I used cloth nappies (baby beehinds I love them!).
Be warned, if your child needs to take antibiotics, or you need to take antibiotics and you are breastfeeding, it will stain the nappies!
