My dd hates to be wet. Someone suggested flannel liners to wick the moisure away from her bum. Does flannel do the same thing or is that just soft? I accidentally bought flannel liners which are non-returnable. Kicking myself for that.

Also do people use flannel liners in summer? Do you think my girl would be too hot? I just want her to be comfy. Thanks!

I might be confused but I think you meant your post to say:

Please correct me if I'm wrong!
First, flannel doesn't wick away like fleece does but it does absorb so it will help a diaper become more absorbant. If you already have fleece topped soakers in a diaper you can put the flannel liner under the soaker to give the diaper an absorbancy boost.

Fleece isn't a natural fabric so it doesn't breathe as well as cottons. If you choose to use them in the summer just keep an eye on your daughter's temp down there and then make the decision. I use fleece occasionally but not all the time.. I think I used it almost exclusively when I first started cloth diapering so Nathan wouldn't have such an adjustment from disposables.

Finally, you can make fleece liners by buying half a yard of microfleece from JoAnn's Fabric Store locally. Then just cut them out to the size you want (usually 3.5 x 10).
1/2 a yard will cost you $5 or less at JoAnn's (if there's a sale on it and often there is it will be less) and you'll have no shipping costs. If you don't have a JoAnn's locally just pm me.

thanks jenn! you're right i can probably make those myself LOL! i'm all mixed up and hopeless i think. i tried to order carefully, checked various websites and still am not happy with my order. i'm currently doing 50/50 sposies and cloth. in my effort to be economical, i bought 3 items i'm not happy with
( but if i want more fleece liners i will check out joanns. we just happen to have one down the street!

here's what i have now:
bumkins AIO, i have lots of these, 2nd hand
one gerber diaper cover
i just bought two fuzzi bunz
i bought two bummis? brand covers that i didn't realize had the laundry tabs
one mother-ease one size fits all (not!) LOL
and a whole bunch of prefolds.

i wanted something to place in the bumkins/prefolds to help wick moisture away from dd's bum. there's too much to choose from out there LOL. i guess she'll always feel wetter sooner in the cloth which hopefully will work to my advtange when potty training. thanks for your time!
