I'm new to cloth, and am not sure whether to buy the liners you can bin/flush, or ones you can wash. What are the pros and cons to both, and what types do you recommend? There are some more expensive washable liners, and then there are really cheap ones on ebay etc - is the extra cost for anything, or are they all much of a muchness?
I had disposable liners and used them for the first day to catch meconium but they were annoying and rumpled up and didnt feel nice (Id bought quite a few different types to try) I ended up giving them all away. I then bought fleece liners which were fine but poo still got on the nappy with it being runny BF poo! In the end I ditched the liners altogether but if you are going to go for anything Id say go for fleece and mke sure its decent quality else they wont last very long (go bobbly and ick very quick) or buy your own fleece blanket and simply cut it up!
I have never been a fan of paper liners. We always used fleece or minkee, turned out fleece made dd's bum sore so we stuck to minkee after that, still have them now and they will be used for this baby despite being pink and purple Just cutting up a fleece blanket is a cheap way of making liners, no sewing required x
I use fleece liners in most of my nappies. I buy the ones off ebay which are made by mums....one of them lives near my mum lol I do sometimes use a flushable one when i know she is gonna do a number 2. Just makes it easier to get rid of down the loo.
