Disposable liners HELP

Postby singers_love » Wed Mar 28, 2012 10:22 am

Hello,

I am currently 8 months pregnant and have been happierly spending all my wages on cloth nappies.. (they are just sooo addictive, cant imagine what Im going to be like when she is actually here!)

I have investigated having paper liners on top of the nappies to keep them a bit cleaner, and to make poop disposal easier to.. So I was wondering with so many different brands and types to choose from which ones are any good???

Also how do you all rate them??

Never used disposable ones, too paper like for me, if I do use one I use minkee and then just chuck them in the machine, I really only use them in easyfits though as they seem to stain easily, the rest I don't bother with, sorry not much help really was I :giggle:

I used them. Lots of people dislike them, so I picked them up in swaps or preloved quite often, and was never fussed about the brand, they all do the job!

I didn't use them til she had solid ish poo though, as they're pointless on newborn runny poo (it sits on the liner then squishes out, not nice). And once they were properly solid, I stopped using them.

Regardless of using them or not, I never found staining a problem. Poo washes out, the nappy gets clean. Very rare stains that dont wash out, usually sun out easily.

As so many people dislike them, it'saybe worth just getting one roll, then if you dislike them it's not a waste? I also made my own fleece liners which did the job well too.

I can recommend the littlelamb ones-you can get a great deal on a pack of 5 or 6 from ebay. They are made from recycled lamb wool waste, flushable, biodegradable and are economical because you can tear each one in half to make it last 2 nappies (they're massive). If you had a mesh bag you could also put them in the wash upto 2 times and re-use them again) I do also use fleece with my nappies because I have a *thing* about stains-paper can collect but residues can be left which is why I combine the two. I choose not to have the minkee because of the drying time and the fact that they can also stain...its all personal preference. if you have any questions, let me know hun ;-) xx

I get on well with the tots bots ones, but you don't need to bother with disposable liners until lo is doing solid poos, ebf poo will go straight through the liners anyway!
