Just wondering if anyone puts paper liners over fleece lined pocket nappies? My 2yo daughter gets a very red bottom whenever fleece is next to her skin (only turns red if she's actually urinated - something about having a wet bottom with the fleece next to her - anyone else had this??)
Anyway, I use Minki fleece pockets on my 11.5mo little boy, as they keep him lovely & dry all night. My daughter seems to wake up in the night with a wet bottom, so I was hoping maybe a stay-dry nappy would help matters. I've started putting a paper liner inside the Minki and *no* red bottom!
But I just wondered if it's as effective? It *seems* the paper liner traps a little bit of wetness (more than the fleece feels wet). Not sure if it's my imagination or not. But if anyone else does or has done the same, maybe you can let me know how you felt it worked. Certainly seems better than an ordinary shaped nappy with paper liner. (For months I've been using a Tots Bot/Little Lamb or Engle nappy with large microfibre booster on top for her at nights, as she is quite a heavy wetter.)
On another forum (before I found this one!) I was asking about alternatives to fleece for sensitive skin and some suggested suedecloth and others the ME stay-dry liners. I bought a couple of stay-dry liners but they feel as damp as anything, IMHO - do they really work? I've also bought a secondhand suedecloth lined Minki Waffle but haven't received it yet - so can't comment on them yet. I bought a Swaddlebees pocket nappy (possibly older style judging by label) which appears to be velour over fleece. Seems she doesn't get redness, but the velour feels so wet & soggy. Again, maybe just my opinon - don't know what others think!
Perhaps I'm just a picky person and want my babies to always feel dry!
Anyway, I've rambled on long enough - you can see I like my cloth nappies! But hopefully all of you pros on here can give me some input & advice.
