"Stay Dry" Liners?

Reading about Bummi's fleece stay dry liner--can I just cut up some fleece of my own to do this? Would flannel work as well to wick away moisture?

You can definitely cut up some of your own fleece - typically they are 5" x 12" but you can make them whatever size you need.

Most manufacturers sell them because they are a great use for scrap pieces...we like nothing to go to waste with cloth.

Absolutely! I cut up one of those cheapy fleece baby blankets from the dollar store and they worked GREAT for us. They made poopy diapers much more manageable also.

Do they help the baby feel dry? I have the Bummis ones and they're not really helping much

Flannel would not work at all to wick moisture away. Flannel will hold onto the moisture and really doesn't feel very nice when wet, IMO.

You can definitely cut up a fleece blanket to make liners. But make sure it hasn't been washed with any fabric softener first, because that will coat the fleece and make it repel moisture.

To echo frogy, do they really help the baby feel drier?

My cuddle dry microfleece ones I make for my kids work great-ds CAN'T STTN w/o one laid in his fitted. I don't think suedecloth works as well personally and would assume you'd need to strip them (I'm assuming suedecloth). I have to strip suedecloth often w/Dawn because skin oils build up and new suedecloth often needs to be stripped IME

Eta ignore my suedecloth reference-couldn't see op at first. Even still try a dawn stripping

So strip the fleece first and then cut and use as liners? Picked some up at JoAnn Fabric today and I want to get started.
