Meconium and cloth

Postby Rufies mama » Sat May 05, 2012 4:22 pm

Hi, my baby's due in 6 weeks so I'm sorting through my stash and wondering, does meconium stain horribly?
Is there anything I can/should do for
those first few days of black tar poo? I was imagining using fleece liners, I have some LL ones. What did you do and did it save your nappies from black/green stains? Thanks

Ours washed out fine and none of them had meconium stains, in fact, the BF poo that followed stained far, far worse!

I think i used a fleece liner a few times but found it just stuck to baby's bottom and was a mess so we ditched them and used the nappy direct.

Both come out in sunshine tho i always found :)

WTS I was surprised that the meconium just washed out without doing anything special. We didn't bother with liners.

I used cellulose liners for the early days, but the nappies and wipes washed out fine. BF poo definitely stains worse so I am using LL fleecy liners now.

OT - @Miss_Purple do you like the LL fleecy liners? I got some in the LL bundle and they look REALLY soft but i wondered if the pile trapped wetness? I want to get some more liners in for baby and LL ones seem reasonably priced and im guessing dont bobble? but i am dubious about it simply due to the pile.
