What’s the point of using those microfleece diaper liners?
Recently, I was asked why someone would use microfleece diaper liners in their cloth. The reasons are plentiful.
Microfleece Diaper Liners Wick
If you’re using natural fiber diapers or some sort of fitted, you’ll find that they are not the most efficient at wicking away moisture. Microfleece diaper liners wick away the moisture from baby’s bottom. A dry bottom is less likely to be a rashy bottom.
Fact: babies poop in diapers. No matter how beautiful or expensive your cloth diapers are, they are, ultimately, intended to be recepticals for urine and feces. Sometimes that poo falls right off the diaper and life is a breeze. Not all babies have poo that just falls right off, and not all families have a diaper sprayer. It’s significantly easier to dunk and swish a microfleece diaper liner than a whole diaper.
Microfleece Diaper Liners Protect
Paranoid about poo stains on your cloth diapers? No problem. Microfleece diaper liners will keep the poo from actually touching the diaper. Your baby has a wicked rash (thanks to those acidic teething poops) and you’ve got to use some butt paste or something prescription. No problem. Microfleece diaper liners will be a barrier between the diaper and the bum that will keep your diapers safe and keep you from using disposables. And if the liners get too gross for you to cope with, they’re awfully cheap.
Have you used microfleece diaper liners? Why do you love them?
