Re: Starting to feel like a mama cloth hoarder

Once upon a time I did a trade for 5 panty liners to use for backup to my Diva. Then I made one for myself for fun one night with a fleece backing. I used store-bought pads for post partum with my 2nd kid and I had ITCH like you wouldn't believe. So for this new baby, I made 17 pads completely out of re-purposed PUL covers with shot elastic, PUL scraps from othe projects, 3 old t-shirts and a super-soft minky crib bumper I found at a garage sale for $1. I love them, though I'm not sure I'd use a polyester topper again. It's stay dry and soft, but if I don't get around to changing in a timely fashion they get a bit of odor.

I, too, like to not have to worry about washing midway through. They probably ARE washed midway, but I don' thave to hover over the washer with my legs crossed waiting.
