Liners and Nappy Pads

What are nappy liners

Liners are thin one-way shields to be placed on top of a cloth nappy to prevent wetness from touching the baby’s delicate skin (and thereby preventing diaper rash).  There are two kinds of liners: disposable and cloth.  Either of these could be placed on the cloth nappy.  Disposable nappy liners are of course more expensive.

What are disposable nappy pads

Disposable nappy pads, recently introduced under the Huggies brand name, are an intermediate step between disposable diapers and cloth nappies.  They work like women’s sanitary pads, in that, you are supposed to insert one nappy pad in the child’s nappy (be it cotton or plastic), and then change the nappy pad after a couple of hours.  The advantages are three-fold: (a) the mother gets relief from washing a huge load of laundry, (b) it is more convenient because nappy pads hold more urine and so do not need to be changed as often as cloth nappies; and (c) the cost of nappy pads is roughly ¼ of the disposable diapers.

What are cloth nappy pads

As the child gets older (3+ months), she passes much more urine than she used to as a newborn child. Cloth nappies alone may not be sufficient, especially if you do not plan to change her for some time (during sleep times).  Instead of letting her remain soaked in urine, you can add a cloth nappy pad inside her cotton nappy.  This will help in retaining a lot more urine.  Placing a nappy liner on this cloth nappy pad will further ensure that the child does not feel any wetness.

Do I need to buy cloth nappy pads from the market

A nappy pad is essentially 4*10 inches in size.  You can either purchase readymade cloth nappy pads from the market, or you can also create makeshift nappy pads from the baby diapering items you have at home.  If you already possess nappy squares, you can fold them into rectangles and use them as nappy pads.  This arrangement works out well because as the child gets older, you can use some of the same nappy items she has outgrown.
