Liners?

Postby mama2boyz » Tue Sep 07, 2010 4:45 pm

OK, I'm now onto my 3rd baby in cloth and all this time have never gotten on with liners - admittedly I only really tried them with DS1 when he was newborn and got loads of leaks.

However, TBH, rinsing DS2's (age 2) down the loo is losing its charm. We eat a lot of wholegrain foodds so his poo is very 'bran-y' and sticky - not fun to sluice off.

Would liners really help? Or would i be sluicing the liners anyway?
We have a septic tank so the disposable liners aren't an option.

thanks for listening to my detailed description of my son's poo :oops:

You would be sluicing the liners anyway. It is easier to sluice a liner though. The main reason for liners is because they wick the moisture away from baby's bottom.

Fleece liners are very cheap so it might be worth a try & see how you get on.

Disposable liners can be an option for a septic tank - not much worse than loo roll, but they do biodegrade. Best ripped in 2 as you put them down - we put hundreds down and all was fine.

You could bag and bin them as an alternative - far less rubbish than everyone else's disposables.

Or try encouraging a poo on the potty, copying your older ones, perhaps for reward?

We use fleece liners for DD who's almost weaned but still has some more liquid poos and they are much easier to sluice than fulls nappies are!! I have paper liners aswell but find that they wrinkle up and stick to her bum :-?

I got 5 fleece liners off Ebay for about £2.50 so they are fairly cheap to try out, I decided I liked them and just bought a meter of fleece to make the rest myself and have made them with a shape that covers most of the nappy.

I agree with the other posters - even sluicing fleece liners is better than dunking nappies...
