1) What is the best insert for wicking moisture away from baby's bottom? We're using GroVia AI2s and I love them but I'd like to put some sort of insert between Miles and the cotton GroVia insert because I don't like that moisture sitting up against his skin all day long. Suggestions on fibers and, if possible, brands?
2)I've switched over to cloth wipes now, too, because I don't care for disposable wipes any more than I do the diapers. I have a system in place for the wipes at home but I'd like to have a spritz bottle with some solution in it along with some dry wipes for when we're on the go. Can anyone recommend a good natural spritz that's out on the market, or am I better off making my own? I'm not opposed to making my own but was just curious if they are any really good pre-made ones out there.
I just use water for the wipes personally and for a liner, i use fleece and its great, its cheap, you can just cut up a old fleece blanket or pick up some fleece cheap and make your own (no sewing required)
Grovia makes staydry boosters and inserts too if you want ones that fit perfectly. Or any fleece liner will work. But if it is not irritating your LO, I wouldn't worry about it. We have been marketed to by disposable diaper companies that baby can't feel wet ever, but for most babies it is really no problem, and can even help with potty learning.
I have used California Baby diaper wash spray, it is nice. I usually just use plain water in a spray bottle though, always have and still do for pees. Her poops are so yucky now though that I prefer to take her to the sink and wash her bottom with soap and lots of water.
a lot of people use microfleece liners as a staydry layer. and there are some boosters etc that you can get that have a staydry layer on the top - I'm just not familiar with which brands do produce them (I live in New Zealand).
We just use plain water too.
We don't have a problem with Natalie when she's wet either. She just cries to let us know she needs a change. I do use microfleece when we go out and most of her pockets are made from microfleece. It's more so the poop sprays off easier than it is to keep her dry. For us, being wet doesn't cause a rash, it's poop that does.
