- why ?
- cloth diapers
- diaper inserts
- change mats
The joy you get from using cloth diapers and saving thousands of dollars is slightly lessened when you have to scrub poop off a cloth insert before throwing it in the washer.
Thank goodness you have the services of 2 unemployable aerospace engineers who readily spend time trying to solve your poop related quandaries.
With our amazing Bamboo Stay-Dry Liners cleaning poop will actually become enjoyable. I understand the gravity of that statement- cleaning poop and enjoyable haven’t been used in the same sentence before in recorded human history, but allow me to justify it:
Bamboo Goodness: Our re-usable nappy liners are made of 50% Bamboo Viscose and 50% Wicking Polyester Mesh.
Received these as a promotional freebie and was really excited to try it out on our newborn. It did make the diaper drier when our little one just had a wet one, but when it came to the poopie diapers, the poo got everywhere, on the diaper, on the regular bamboo diaper and leaked out onto the onesie - that was the real disappointment. I think it’s because they don’t stay in place. Unknown on 20th Jan 2019
I have recently added the bamboo stay dry liners to our diaper collection and are very happy with them. I use them with the charcoal inserts to help spread out the absorption. I also use them on top of the bamboo inserts to help keep my daughter feeling dry. They have worked great for us! Meghan on 15th Jan 2019
I have recently started using these and although they are not perfect, they are a helpful product. I wasn't expecting much from these since they looked so minimal, but I was overall pleasantly surprised at their functionality and usefulness.
- They keep my baby drier feeling when I use the bamboo inserts. I change him after 3 hours and the liner is basically dry, while the inserts are pretty soaked.
- 75% of my baby's poop (exclusively on formula) plops right off. I'm also able to use a wet wipe on most of the other poops to get the liner clean enough to put in the washer.
- Wish they stayed in place a little better. My baby isn't overly 'wiggly' and these still move around a bit, so I can't imagine that these would be the best solution for the real squirmers out there. Maybe the liners could be made a little longer with re-enforced holes punched out on either end so they can fit into the snaps between the large and small inserts, or the shell and the small insert?

we bought more because we started running out during our wash days.
I really like these as they cut down on the cleaning process. When the baby poop is still liquid, its similar to cleaning the diaper but easier to rinse. As the poop gets more solid, it slides off quite easily (if wet , need to shake out in water, if poop dries, it plops off).
plus it adds some bonus absorbency! Unknown on 5th Dec 2018
These are about the same as the stay dry power as the charcoal liner, which make them a great addition to bamboo liners. They are also good with catching and releasing poop, although there will still be a little bit of residue, usually some hot running water will help get rid of them.
I accidentally found out that they are great at saving those ruined charcoal diaper inserts. I used diaper cream (oops) which made the inserts repel and these guys helped a lot and allowed me to continue using those inserts until they’ve gone through enough washing to remove all of the cream.
They however do not stay in place very well, either on charcoal or bamboo, that’s the only complaint I have about them. Carol on 23rd Nov 2018
we were given a pack of these for free from lil helper with a previous order (thank you, you sly minx!) and were keeping them for when our baby started solids. The transition when he started solids surprised me, it was all of a sudden much harder to wash the diapers! so we started these inserts.
First off, the transition solids dont last long so we are back to easy washing of the diapers, phew!
But I am glad we tried these liners, if I had known how useful they were I would have started them from day one. The waste plops quite easily off the liner (just give a few shakes in whatever water you use to rinse your diapers, we use the toilet), and it decreases the amount overall in the diaper (since often it pools in multiple places while still quite liquid). Also it adds some absorbency overall to the diaper.
We bought a few more sets, 4 sets (pack of 5) seem to get us through our two day cycle of laundry.

My little guy is a heavy wetter. I have noticed that these liners seem to wick the moisture down the inserts so that there is less chance for compression leaks at the front of the diaper. I also love that its much easier to rinse poop off of these. I do find that they tend to move into the center of the diaper so not sure they will be good for ensuring all poop remains off the edges, but it could just be my baby's huge infant poops right now!

These are okay liners. They are long enough and wide enough to cover the diaper to help clean up messes. I'm not sure which side is supposed to be stay dry because both have a wet feeling immediately after (we usually use a micro fleece liner that appear to have a better "stay dry" affect).
Good size, good for helping to rid diapers of poop, but not the best stay dry affect compared to other liners. Unknown on 24th Jul 2018
Disposable liners are obviously going to be easier, so that's a given. These spray pretty easily, but I wouldn't say that the peanut butter poop slides off as promised lol. I also think the charcoal inserts do a better job of staying dry than these do, but I'm not sliding my hand all over it to be sure. They are definitely worth having around. Our toddler has a bowel movement at LEAST once a day. So we have been much happier using disposable liners until she goes once, and then using these liners for the remainder of the day if she's had dairy recently (makes her go 3+ times). I do find them useful, and we continue to use them regularly, but I don't understand why they hold onto smell. When I've had smell issues, these were amongst the worse for smell, but there are no multi layers to trap urine or whatnot. It just seems to invite some microscopic bond that I haven't figured out yet. I'm curious to know if anyone has experienced this. I'm also starting to wonder if my little one has been becoming dehydrated if our cloth diapering (with approved wash routine and regular Borax use) is prone to smell? Unknown on 29th Jun 2018
I love the stay dry liner. They keep baby's bum dryer, and I notice that since I started using them, diaper rashes are non-existent...until I have to use disposables, but a couple days using these and the rash disappears. Unknown on 10th Apr 2018
Poop washes off the liners easily and they are easy to clean. I haven't had any trouble with them sliding out of place like mentioned in some of the other reviews. New Mom on 4th Apr 2018
THESE LIGHT-WEIGHT STAY DRY LINERS EVENLY DISTRIBUTES WETNESS ENSURING MORE ABSORPTION AND LESS LEAKAGE. THE POOP EASILY COMES OFF AND WASHES EASILY. I REALLY LIKE THE STAY-DRY MATERIAL THAT JUST WICKS AWAY THE MOISTURE, MAKING MY BABY NOT FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE IN HIS WET DIAPERS.
IT'S LIGHTWEIGHT AND EASY TO PACK IN MY DIAPER BAG. I ALSO LIKE THE LENGTH OF THE LINERS, THEY ARE JUST LONG ENOUGH TO COVER THE CHARCOAL LINERS AND PROVIDE EXTRA PROTECTION FROM THOSE WET ONES. AND IT'S MADE OF NATURAL PRODUCTS, SO IT WON'T CAUSE ANY RASHES ON MY BABY'S SKIN!
I WILL PUT IT TO THE TEST WHEN MY BABY GETS OLDER AND HAS THOSE REALLY POO-POO DIAPERS, BUT FOR NOW, THEY DO WORK AND I LOVE THEM! Natalie on 21st Mar 2018
Nothing wrong with them just rather use disposable liners Colbi Torgunrud on 21st Feb 2018
These are amazingly good quality and easy to wash. I do however wish they were wider. Have a tendency to fold inwards. But still amazingly soft. :) Stephanie M on 13th Dec 2017
I was so excited when I read about the bamboo stay dry liners after using disposable liners for 2 years with my little guy. I really wanted to love these - but find that the liners really don't stay in place for my toddler (2.5 years), also the dark colours make it hard to check to see if there is a poop in his diaper at times. I find that the mushy messy poops do not slide off the liners.
I will see how they work for my youngest who is just starting solids now. Nicole on 8th Jun 2017
Nothing wrong with product quality. I simple prefer to use a disposable liner. Unknown on 11th May 2017
These are handy little things. Ordered extra to be able to use in all of my cloth diapers. They will be so great when baby is having solid bm's just do a little shake. Unknown on 22nd Feb 2017
Not something I felt worked as well as I'd hoped. It does help poop removal in the sense that they rinse so easily. But for a moving baby they seem to be more work. The liner doesn't stay in place well within the diaper and u end up with poop on the sides of it anyways. I wish it was maybe designed like a fitted sheet on a mattress so that it could stay secured over the absorbable liners. Maybe something to consider for future production . Melinda Sheppard on 5th Feb 2017
Better then disposable! Keeps baby dry and easy to clean. Unknown on 11th Dec 2016
I love to use these liners especially with the bamboo inserts. The charcoal inserts already have the stay dry effect so adding the bamboo liners on the bamboo inserts helps with 1-stains and 2- to keep baby a little more dry.
I'm sure I will appreciate these as well once baby starts eating solids and has solid poop.
Thanks lil helper! Lyssa Fortin on 25th Nov 2016
