Ok, I have officially decided to CD my son, and a new baby arriving in the spring. I don't have the cash for the initial investment, so after much research, I'm going to try making my own. I know the style and fabrics I want to use, but here's where I'm lost....the poop. Cale has squishy poop since we started him on whole milk. How do I deal with this? Do I buy disposable liners? Where would I get them from? Can I make liners, and which fabrics would I use? Do I even need a liner? Will the poop really come out of the diaper if they aren't washed immediately? How should I get the bulk off without using a liner? A sprayer? Scraping? I just feel completely clueless on this part.

Sorry for the question overload! I feel completely confident about everything except dealing with the poop. Any help, ideas, or advice would be extremely helpful and very appreciated!
New siggy coming soon!

hi and welcome!!! kaylynn always ad squishy poop too and i never use liners. the poop really does come off. i don't wash my dipes but every 3 days and she poops everyday so there is at least one or two dipes that have been sitting there for 3 days and everything comes clean. what i do is shake off what i can and then if i see a big glob(gross i know, sorry) of poop that i can get with toilet paper, i do that.....otherwise, it just goes into the pail till wash day. you can also get the sprayers but what i do works fine. my mom also cd'ers my little sister and she has a big metal spoon designated as the "poop spoon" and she uses that to get any extras off. personally, i would waste money on liners....i don't think they are necessary....but some mama's on here like them. hth some!

Im really new, so I may not be much help. From all the research Ive done, it seems that everyone has their own preference. So it may just be a trial and error thing. From my limited experience, I just dump off what will come off, and than use a little toilet paper and than it just goes with the other dipes till wash day. All the poop comes off in the cold rinse, for me. HTH!

I use flushable liners. I wash them if they are wet (don't dry in the dryer) until they fall apart. If they are messy, I flush them. I think you can also use fleece as a liner, but I'm not sure. I'll let one of the mommas who knows more about that answer.

I love the flushable liners too. I also wash them if they are only peed on. I use Imse Vimse liners (google it for lots of stores). I have also used the toilet paper or spatula to scrape it off, but prefer the liners. For babes that are not eating solids you do nothing with the poop. It all washes off, amazingly so! You can use cut up pieces of fleece to line too, that way if they get really yucky you can toss them and its not expensive.
Are you planning on making fitteds? Using a pattern?

Hey Kim

I think I answered this in the PR, but I'm not 100% sure. I just bought a yard of fleece and cut it into rectangles to use as liners. It's nice and soft and generally everything comes off. They also keep him really dry since the pee just passes right through it. I do have a couple that are stained but I figure it's going inside his diaper so it's no big deal!

I use the ImseVimse flushable liners. They're fantastic!

Thanks for the responses ladies! I think that if I decide that I need liners, I will just make some. Once I get some more dipes made and really start to use cloth I think I will be able to make a better decision. Thanks again!

Ditto what mommy2Kaylee bug said.

If I think more will come off, I flush what just fell off and sometimes I swish in the "cleaner" toilet water to get more off. I used to wash only 2-3 days too - I have to wash more often now cause AJ is growing out of his mediums.

PM to see if I am available to make a siggy - decisions will be made on a case by case basis.
