I haven't had any complaints either I find that as long as the soaker layer is adequate, and you aren't going too long between changes, this shouldn't be an issue.

If you use PUL, do you make that layer to lay directly under the soaker part, right?

Surprisingly, after re-reading 3 times, I understood perfectly Thanks for explaining, that is an interesting pad construction.

So it roughly looks like this [)(] Now scoot the two moons closer together so that they overlap and your paper is essentially divided into thirds. "sew" the straight edges of the moons onto the full sheets of paper. You are now looking at the back of your pad. To use, turn over and fold the outer thirsds in, this makes 9 layers of absorbancy. HTH and doesn't just confuse you more!

Re: Everything you need to know about mama cloth

Gotta sub to this so I can keep up better.... but i have a question! I saw it asked WAY back at the beginning, but no one ever answered:

I am new to making MC and I see that fleece is used a lot... but then I go to 'shop' for fleece and it's sort of all listed by weight? When weight would be good/best for MC? Does it even matter? Is a really light fleece going to repel water (almost) as well as a heavy one? This part confuses me

Also, when it comes to terry, I mean, bathtowels? Or is there a certain kind of terry that is better? Honestly I tried a bathtowel once to make an insert for DS's dipe and it was USEless for absorbency...Am I missin something?! Will terry come down to a weight thing too!?! lol

I get OBV, and OCV, and all the other references and LOVE some of the patterns thrown out on here! Just havin a hard time with the fleece weight bit.

THank you so much mamas!!!

Re: Everything you need to know about mama cloth

well i made a few night time pads as well as some panty liners and all i have to say is i'm glad no one else can see them. serging around all those tight corners is not easy. and my bottom flannel layer is sliding around on my pul layer when i serg it and it comes out bunchy and puckery on the bottom....grrr.... maybe i'll try t+t the next ones, but its sooooo time consuming! thanks for listening to me vent mamas!
