I have made some for DS. They are an hourglass shape insert that i've sewn into a normal pair of undies. I got the idea off someone on TNN actually. Mine have a backing layer of PUL, an absorbant layer of microfibre and a top layer of flannelette. They are great. They catch all the wee, yes pants still get wet, but i don't get puddles on the floor
. You could put whatever you have got in for the absorbant layer too.
thats what im thinking of doing as well - nice thin contoured shape. Think it was shortly that makes her training undies. i was going to buy some but i have so much nappy fabric and cottn lycra here that i really should make them!
yeah i want her to feel them as undies rather than nappies. the two layers of cotton velour seems to go well so far (wipe folded in half), its not too thick but absorbant enough to grab most of the wee before it hits the floor, but it soaks the undies as well so she knows right away and comes runnign to me yelling bum bum
i might do a couple of undies with pul lined as well for outings etc. so they are thin but not going to soak her clothes if she wets
