Thanks to Vicki for this Frugal Baby Tip!

I was at my doctor appt the other day, and I asked him if he knew if the hospital lets you use cloth diapers. He said "No, because of all the germs coming in and out of the hosp with the dipes"!

A friend said, just get some cheap flannel (WalMart always has it for a couple of dollars a yard) and cut out some liners to stick in the disposables... at least it will be cloth against baby's skin even though wearing a disposable. You don't even need to sew them, just use one with each diaper change and toss them out with the diapers... that way they can't complain about "germs" leaving the hospital.

    Interesting...the hospital at which I delivered used cloth themselves.

  2. It seems rare to find a hospital that still uses cloth, but maybe they are going back to the comfort of cotton?
