Fancy Cloth Baby Review and Giveaway

July 14th, 2011

Charlotte has sensitive skin. All my kids do. For overnight diaper use, we like to use a stay dry fabric next to her skin to make sure no rashes arise. During the Flats Challenge back in May, I started to think about using flats as our main diapering stash. The thing I really appreciate about flats and prefolds is their simplicity. Yes, there are a myriad of different folds but I really love the simplicity of a 2 part diapering system. (That sounds like an oxymoron). Yes, you can have simplicity in a two part diapering system. You can use one cover until it is soiled (this cuts down on laundry), just change out the insert. Anyways, the thing that prefolds and flats are missing is the stay dry element. Fancy Cloth Baby has a solution! Christine has created a stay dry liner with a pocket that can be stuffed with a prefold, flat or another insert and laid into a cover. Genius! More on these liners in the review.

Christine's shop also carries numerous other cloth diapering supplies. Her line-up includes Hemp/cotton contoured prefolds, Fleece pocket wraps, Newborn AI2's and these great reusable deodorizing discs that you can put essential oil on to prevent diaper pail stink. She also has a blog with some useful cloth diapering info on it.


The Review:

Christine sent me a stay dry liner to review. She has created a liner that is used as a stay dry layer for prefolds, flats or any other inserts. The liner is made from suede cloth which is similar to microfleece but thinner, does not pill, and stays looking new longer. It wicks away moisture, and resists staining. This liner is One Size. It adjusts by folding down the back part of the liner to fit your baby. Liners are very handy to have around if baby gets a rash and needs diaper cream. Some diaper creams are not safe to use with cloth diapers because of the moisture barrier ingredients that they have in them. These ingredients, if they get on cloth diapers, can cause repelling issues.

(L to R) Liner unsnapped, Liner with flat, Stuffed Liner in cover.

Ease of Use: Easy! All the needs to be done is stuff the flat, prefold, or insert into the pocket flap of the liner and snap the closure. This snap holds the insert and prevents bunching and shifting. You could even prepare this before hand and have them ready to lay in the cover.

Performance: I was very happy with these liners. We mainly used them at nighttime and naps with great results. Charlotte's skin was always dry when she woke up and rash free. The liner adds no bulk at all and keeps the insert in place. I'm really surprised that they are not stains on this liner. We've been using it for about 8 weeks or so and no stains (believe me, we've had messes while wearing it too).

Care: I washed this with my normal cloth diapers. Christine reccommends warm washing. The liner has held up really well and there is no pilling.

Material: Suede cloth (100% polyester)

Cost: $3.95. You can save be buying them in a 12 pack ($24.00). Click here to purchase.

Overall Opinion: These liners are the perfect option for parents wanting to use prefolds or flats. They provide a stay dry barrier that protects delicate skin. They have the added benefit of helping inserts stay put in covers. I love the fact that I can size these to fit any baby and any cover. The liners are a more economical nighttime option for parents who use prefolds or flats than a pricey pocket or AIO diaper.


FancyCloth Hemp Doubler Pouch

Do you need a nighttime boost for you prefolds or flats? Christine makes a liner made out of hemp to add that much needed nighttime absorbency.
