making "piddle pads"

692 Views 0 Replies 1 Participant Last post by  pmcleod
I would like to make some organic "piddle pads" for our coming baby, but am not quite sure how to approach this. I have seen them sold online as (a) wool (very expensive!); (b) plastic (not an option!); or (c) fleece/terrycloth. I'd like to use them as mattress protectors as well as changing pads, etc.

I have some nice, natural wool batting - but I'm not sure how to create a washable pad from this? Would a couple of layers of felted wool - like what is used in diaper covers - be a better idea? If so, what are the best mailorder sources?

If I went with hemp/cotton fleece, terrycloth, etc., it would be very easy for me to find organic mailorder sources for these fabrics ... but how many layers would you suggest?

Thanks in adviance!
