I am going to order some PUL to make some pocket diapers....

Do I use breathable PUL?

Also, if I want to make a diaper pail liner, should I use breathable or non breathable PUL?

Also, if I want to make about 5 dipes, how many yards should I buy?

Thank you for your help!

Personally, I like breatheable PUL. It's always worked just fine and I think the breatheability is better for dd's tushie. I guess my feeling is why not, since it works just fine?

For a diaper pail liner, I'd just say buy whatever's cheaper.

As for how much to buy, it depends on your pattern and what size you are making...I make medium/large diapers and figure I can get 4 diapers out of 1-1/4 yds. of 45" fabric (that makes a square). If you're clever you can get more if you arrange them carefully. Maybe a couple of yards just to be safe? (Unless you're making NB's or very small diapers, then you won't need that much.)

Hope this helps!

Thank you so much! My ds is sleeping and I want to get this ordered now. We go on vacation Friday and then it should be here when we get back. Woo-hoo!

Pinky-
I'm sorry another question. How much aplix should I buy? I'd like enough for at least 5 diapers although, more is better than less.

I'm making medium dipes (for now!)

Hmm....I think they usually suggest 1:4 or 1:5 ratio of hook and loop...you won't need much hook at all..less than a foot for five diapers, I might order 1/2 a yard just to be safe. Another 2 yards of loop should be more than enough.

Have fun!
