I started using cloth diapers in Jan and am in the process of making some cloth wipes for my ds this week. I have some extra flannel and was wondering how everyone else did their mama cloth.<br><br>
What is your mama cloth system like?<br><br>
I had a small amount of microfleece, enough to maybe make three liners, how many liners do you recommend? I have several yards of wool I could use if wool would work for a liner, but I have no idea what to do with it. I've never sewn with wool before and it was in a lot of fabric that was given to me. Have any of you used wool for your liners before? Did you like it? Do I need to do anything special to the wool?<br>
Also, how many pads do you ladies have. Since I just gave birth I expect af to be completely different from before I got pregnant so I want to be prepared for the worse case scenario. I have never used cloth before so I don't know how absorbant they will be either.<br>
I was thinking for the pads I would do four layers of flannel with a layer of terry. I also thought I might stitch the terry to the top two layers of flannel with a row of stitches down the center to help draw the liquid to the center. Do you think that would work? Is it even necesary?<br>
Am I over thinking this?

i have a very simple mamacloth system - just flannel, no liners for the moment. i bought two yard of good flannel at a fabric store and cut strips the same length as a long pad and i just fold. i haven't used liners at all but i plan to get some pul cut about the same size as a pad and just slide into the bottom most part of my folded pad. i have i think 8 pads, but i handwash the used ones every day, i almost never run out.<br><br>
oh, and my af wasn't any different pp. (yeah, already got it.. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">)
