Reusable Fleece Diaper Liner

 Reusable Diaper Liners

Most reusable cloth diaper liners are made from fleece. You can buy them online or make them yourself for only a couple of dollars. They will wick the moisture away from your baby, helping him or her to feel dry.

I use these with almost every diaper, especially with my COTTON PREFOLDS. These will help prevent diaper rash and stains. You can also use regular diaper creams that aren’t safe for cloth diapers with a liner.

A lot of times you will be able to just spray the liner instead of the entire cloth diaper. These can be thrown in with your diapers for washing. You can also find fleece liners with cute prints on Etsy for around 5-20 bucks.

How many you need will depend on how often you plan on using them. I have one for every diaper but you may only want to use them for overnight and nap time. I would suggest starting with a 6-10 pack and then getting more if you decide you like them.

Disposable Diaper Liners

Many cloth diaper companies make disposable liners but most of them do the same basic job. These are a great option for when you are traveling or you have an idea of when your baby is going to “go.”

Disposable liners are the consistency of a dryer sheet. They can come in a roll of around 100-200 sheets. You simply tear one out and lay it over your diaper. The liner will catch the poo and you can plop it in the toilet or trash.

Some reviewers say they have been known to clog up their septic systems so be mindful of that. Personally, I’d drop the poo in the toilet and dispose of the liner (just to be safe).

If your baby is suffering from a stubborn diaper rash, you can use a non-cloth diaper friendly rash cream; The liner will act as a barrier, protecting the diaper.  You can also re-use the liner once or twice as long as the baby has only peed.

I wouldn’t suggest using disposable diaper liners until your baby starts on solids. My babies were both almost 100% breastfed and their poo ran straight through the disposable diaper liners.

Wait until your baby’s poo is solid enough for the liner to catch it. Also, If you choose to use the liners, you’ll have the extra step of prepping your cloth diapers with them. I still think it’s definitely worth it If your baby is going to daycare or visiting family.

You don’t have to put them in every diaper, you can use them strictly for traveling, babysitters, etc. These types of liners don’t wick the moisture away from the baby’s bum so I wouldn’t suggest using them with every diaper. If you know roughly the time of day your baby will be going, these are very convenient to use!
