Quick Tip: Protect your diapers!

28 11 2011

Whenever you need to use ointment for the baby’s butt and you are using cloth diapers, remember that if the ointment has lanolin or petroleum jelly it will ruin the absorption of the diapers. You can buy ointment especially made for cloth diapers, you can buy cloth liners especially made for this, or you can go for the really cheap solution: Get an old T-shirt that you don’t care about anymore and cut liners to fit your diapers. That way the ointment will get trapped in the liner protecting your cloth diaper.
