I was feeling all crafty the other day and also frustrated with the diaper rash I couldn’t get rid of on my son’s bum. I decided I needed to break out the “big guns” diaper cream (which is NOT safe for cloth diapers) and the flushable liners I had been using kept letting the cream get onto the diaper. It was rather exasperating as I had to specially clean each diaper that had gotten creamed. I decided to go ahead and get some fabric to make some reusable diaper liners what would be large enough and thick enough to keep the cream off my dipes.
I bought some micro-fleece fabric, and used a rotary cutter to cut it so it was large enough that it fully covered the inside of the diaper. From what I’ve learned, micro-fleece is one of the better fabrics to use for diaper liners as it’s thin yet wicks really well. The new liners have worked really well so far at keeping the cream off my diapers, and they’ve been great at keeping the wetness off Angelo’s skin. I love it when I can find something that I wont have to buy more of in the near future too since they’re reusable.
**Do make sure you bring a coupon along if you decide to make some as micro-fleece is not as cheap as other types of fleece. I think it was somewhere in the range of $14/yard regular price.**
