Do you need to prep stay dry liners? Help a newbie with Flips and Totsbot

Ok I'm a newbie so I know you need to prep cotton with lots of washes but what about stay dry material? I washed my Flip stay dry liners about 3 times and it could not hold runny infant EBF poop which leaked onto the cover. Is that normal? If so how shoud I use them? I also have the new daytime inserts so would I sandwich the stay dry liner into that insert? Or lay on top? Are those stay dry inserts only good for pee?

I also have TotsBots easy fits. Do they need multiple washings too?

Thank you!

Tots bots minky ones just need one wash. I haven't used flip stay dry but the new day time inserts are all cotton so they need at least 3-4 washes & dries to prep. As far as layering the stay dry with the cotton, I am not helpful. I would say with the stay dry leaking poop onto the cover would be normal. The inserts bunch in flip covers no matter what inserts & EBF poop is really liquid & explosive HTH!

With newborns you just have to expect that poo will get on the cover unless you are using prefolds attached to baby or fitteds. Eventually as your child ages use can reuse more.

Thank you! DD is almost 5 months old so is the stay dry liner more for after she's eating solids? Or do I sandwich in the new daytime inserts to hold pee better?

I guess I'm not understanding what you mean by stay dry liner? Is it the stay dry flip inserts that I linked to? That would be what absorbs the waste. The stay dry top is so when baby wets it doesn't feel as moist on baby skin. Stay dry has nothing to do with what gets on the cover.

With the flip system you can reuse the covers once whenever the poop doesn't get one them. This is possible with any inserts or prefolds ect.

You can use multiple inserts if you think your child needs more absorbency. Is there any leaking onto baby clothes?

Basically anything made of synthetics just needs one wash for manufacturing residue since it has no oils.
