I have one Glad Rags overnight/postpartum pad, and was considering buying more for when the baby gets here. But they're pretty pricey... So I have been looking at other kinds of reusable pads... considering making my own... and toying with the idea of using a diaper liner/doubler!<br><br>
Has anyone done this? How well did it work? The dimensions on some I've seen are 4X14 so I'd think the size would be good... I might need to sew an extra strip and snap on to hold them in place but aside from that I think they just might work out.<br><br>
(And no, I am not planning on sharing these with the baby... I know they'd get all icky and stained so I'd make sure to have my own stash!)

I haven't done this personaly (yet). But I was thinking about that too. I think it is a good idea. And yes a lot cheaper. I read somewhere that the preemie size CPF work really well. I am interested to see what other mama's say. (This might end up getting moved to Healthy Home and Body)

Heck yeah, lol. Premie pf's worked great too for around the house and I had a few regular post partum pads for when I went out and didn't want it to be so bulky. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Totally. I use all DS's old newborn doublers for my own pads. I have no problem sharing with him <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Great idea!<br><br>
I would think that if you want something to hold the pad on, you could sew the doubler to a snap-on pantyliner with a straight stitch that'd be easier to remove later. I gotta try that!
