Can they be washed in with the cd's or is there any danger of that causing the cd's to repell?
Alright, so I gave this a try...the Pampers wipes that I used just to wipe babies bottom (pee not poop) I threw in the wash...and they came out a mess. They were like when you throw a kleenex tissue in the wash. Oh well.

I use Imse Vimse and Bummis BioSoft. The Imse Vimse work well and are great because you can wash and reuse them a few times if they haven't been pooped on. The Bummis are great because they are sooooo soft. I'm torn because the Imse Vimse do get softer as you wash them. Another mama suggested washing them once before ever using them so they are softer when you use them on your LO. I haven't tried that yet but may. The Bummis definitely do NOT stand up to washing. Learned that one the hard way and spent time pulling bits of them out of velcro. But they do work for catching poo and are very soft from the get go.

Generally you don't throw a fleece liner away, they go right in the wash with the diapers. It is a lot easier to get poop off a reusable liner than off a diaper - just shake over the toilet and swish or spray what's left!. I am currently using Motherease stay-dry liners - they are a lot wider and longer than most of the fleece liners I've seen/used, and they tend to stay in place a lot better. I gave up on flushable liners long ago as they always tended to bunch up, making it kind of redundant if you're using them for ease of clean up purposes.

i do i tried a couple brands and settled on the tiny tush...they're definitely flushable & breakdown in the toilet so i don't stress about actually flushing them and they're twice as big as they need to be so i cut them in half and get double from the roll!

I used flushable liners during the peanut butter poop phase, now I only use them when DS is sick and has yucky poop. Otherwise I use fleece liners and just dump (poop rolls right off of them).
