cotton outer on a WN pocket?

Postby rhead » Tue Jan 20, 2009 4:41 pm

I'm being tempted by an old-style WN with a very cute cotton print outer - should I just say no, or is it maybe safe? Have read (including on the WN web site, I'm sure!) that cotton isn't recommended for the outer because it wicks; the owner says she hasn't had any problems but also said something about having the paper liner be big enough/placed correctly, and we don't use paper liners. :shock: I'm thinking I should probably pass, but 'tis super cute. :?

Personally I wouldn't bother with it, we only have one cotton outer pocket, I thought it might be ok when Summer was teeny and not wetting too much, I was totally wrong, it wicks like mad!

I have had lots of cotton outer pockets (including a wn) and never had any problems so it does depend on the baby I think
