Thanks to Eva & Darla for these Frugal Baby Tips!

Eva said: I was making my own from terry towels (since my mother has lots of unused new terry towels I could use so that would cost me nothing). The problem is that since I do not use softener and do not have a dryer, the terry fabric gets really hard and stiff after being washed and I wondered what this stiff cloth would do to Lorenz' butt?

Darla said: A simple way to avoid scratchy terry is to put a layer of flannel on one side. It's not only softer but absorbs faster. Get diaper flannel as it outlasts any other flannel on the planet. It only comes in 27" width, that's how you know it's diaper flannel.
