Question: I see moms talk about using disposable liners and I wonder what they are? How do they work and why should I give them a try?
The Geek's Answer: Thanks for asking! The term "liner" can be confusing, especially since so many diapers have "lining" which is usually a stay dry fabric like microfleece or suedecloth. But a Disposable Liner is something different all together.
Disposable and/or Biodegradable Flushable Liners consist are dry-weave for comfort, they are soft and much resemble a piece of tissue paper only stronger like a fabric. They allow moisture to pass through into the diaper's absorbent core and they "catch" the solid waste keeping the diaper and it's built in lining from getting really soiled. They make diaper laundry much easier and shaking the poo into the toilet is as easy as grabbing the liner and pulling it off, the poo and all, and throwing into the toilet. Flush...and tada! That's all there is to it.
Since they are 100% Biodegradable you don't have to worry about throwing them in the garbage, they can be safely flushed away with the waste, just like toilet paper.
How do you use it? Each sheet is approximately 9" x 14" and comes in a roll. You simply tear off a sheet and lay it in the diaper before fastening the diaper on the baby. There are 100 sheets per roll and for smaller babies you can even cut each sheet in half and get twice the amount of sheets per roll!
