    Default MCN liner options

    Hi,

    I've just purchased some My Little Ripple MCNs and I really want to use reusable liners rather than flushable.

    I have old style terry towelling nappies from my first child and I am wondering if I cut them to size if they would be able to be repurposed as reusable liners? Would terry towelling be alright against skin and as a liner? I'm wondering if I will compromise the engineering of the nappy being absorbent itself (especially as MLR are pocket MCNs)?

    Do any other mums have suggestions on low cost/ repurposed items for MCN liners?

    Thanks!

    I cut up some polar fleece I had and it makes awesome liners. The solid waste comes off really easily and the liquid passes straight through to the mcn's booster.

    I wouldn't think terry would be a good choice as it will hold moisture against their skin and is not the easiest to get poo out of. I researched reusable liners before I made mine and the consensus seemed to be to use microfleece (not to be confused with microfibre) or polarfleece - neither of these need hemming either.

    Thanks stretched! Really helpful advice! Off to find cheap polar/ micro fleece. I am guessing it comes in different weighting? Because when I think of polar fleece I think of a jumper... And that would be really thick in my mind?!

    I used what I had on hand which was intended to make a dressing gown, so a bit thick. About the same as the baby polar fleece onesies you get in bigW etc. But I don't notice it adding to the bulk at all. I think because if anything it gets thinner when wet.
