Cottonbabies Insert Sock

Post by aussiemum » Wed Jun 06, 2007 9:23 pm

I just saw this interesting product on cottonbabies.com. You can place your microfibre, prefold etc inside the suedecloth sock to have the stay-dry layer and then pop it in a cover. Has anyone tried one? I've never seen one before.

I made something similar when I first discovered TNN. They've got an envelope opening along their length. I still use them if all the others are in the wash. They're not very cute but work fine and are good for holding lots of inserts together in the cover.

so it's like a pocket without the pocket?
I honestly wouldn't be bothered if I was just using a cover - they are supposed to be easy. The reason I use a pocket is to keep everything contained within a stay dry liner...

It's not like a pocket nappy - it's like a nappy liner that encloses the inserts so it doesn't slide around and holds them all together. They are very simple and cheap to make. They make using a prefold and cover system much easier.

I've been thinking about doing this with some microfleece I have, but thought it might be a bit stretchy and difficult to stuff. Is sudecloth firmer than microfleece? I haven't seen any irl.

A microfleece or suede cloth envelope would mean that I could use some of my microfibre inserts in my fitted nappies kwim?

Baby Harmony do a similar thing with Microfibre and you can stuff all your layers into the envelope and then stuff your pocket.

I made a whole load of these out of microfleece when I was using prefolds and wraps on J (back in the dark ages :wink: )
You can make up a whole load and pre stuff them. Quite handy - but not a new idea :D

I think it would be quite a cool idea to keep a few inserts neat in the sock as my toddler flings himself around as I'm trying to change him!
