Major BRAG! Diaper liners

I had to post this because I'm so thrilled about it..I have been using prefolds on my newborn daughter because her one size pockerts are way to big on her right now and after the first week I discovered that while prefolds are both efficient and economical they are less able to draw the wetness away from babies skin..I have disposable liners I use to take care of poo issues but I really wanted something to make the diaper more absorbant to that even when shes wet its not being held against her skin..so I researched and I knew that they made fleece diaper liners for that reason so I decided to give them a try.The ones I purchased were the cheapest I could find so I didnt hope out much hope that they would work well..Boy was I surprised..I bought a pack of 5 bummis brand fleece liners(I think they ran about a dollar each plus tax and shipping) and Im so glad I did..they are amazing..I put them in my daughters prefolds(it takes some practice to get it right as you can't just lay it in then fold the diaper because then the liner would be inside) but I was amazed that when I took the diaper off of her..it was soaked but the liner felt dry to the touch..and they are soooo soft..they are very thin so don't add any bulk..I find that I can hand wash them if need be and they take a few min in the dryer and they are ready to go again..I have purchased another few sets of 5 so I have enough for one for each diaper and don't have to wash them until I do diaper laundry(i do still rinse them so they dont hold the pee smell) and bummis claims you can use them underneath a disposable liner thats meant to keep the diapers safe from poo stains..Ive yet to try that out as i find I don't care if the diapers are stained..IM not having more children and don't know anyone who plans of cloth diapering so theyre being sent to africa(there are companies that do that) ...I was hesitant about cloth diapering and doing the diaper laundry every other day and making sure I had enough to use while I was washing but Im actually feeling really good about this..Yes I spent a ton of money up front but I know it'll pay itself off in the long run as long as I actualy use the pocket diapers I bougth..LOL..Im loving prefolds right now..

Nice review. I've never used their liners. Fleece inners are nice for nighttime, that is when we have used diaper like that (happy hempy). I'm not sure that it works out considerably cheaper, but you can buy thin polyester fleece by the yard and cut it yourself, it requires no sewing.

Thats great to know..Im not a sewer so I wasnt sure about that..I was afraid if i bought fleece and cut it it would fray..I'll have to check into that because I would love a bunch of these things even for my pocket diapers(they do have a microfleece stay dry lining butI want to besure the baby stays dry)..
