Cotton Velour?

I've registered for some Thirsties Cotton Velour doublers for overnights for extra absorbancy... I know that Microfiber cannot touch babies' skin, what can you tell me about Cotton Velour?

I also have registered for fleece liners so I will likely use a liner over the doubler so the liner is touching babies' skin anyway.  I was just curious.

Re: Cotton Velour?

  • Are they these ones?

    http://www.amazon.com/Thirsties-Doublers-Cotton-Velour-Meadow/dp/B004R221ZE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1359667096&sr=8-1&keywords=thirsties+doublers

    If so, I would take them off the registry.  I have some and they are not very absorbent at all.  You'd be much better off with a Kawaii or Alva bamboo insert.


  • They are.  Thank you.  I will remove these and look into the others!

    Look into the Joey bunz premium hemp inserts. They are amazing and can be used by themselves.

    Oh... I had some of these on my Amazon registry... they didn't make it over when I moved everything over to myregistry.com.  Thanks!

  • I have some of the Thirsties fab doublers in size small.  They have been perfect to add to my Kissaluvs size 0's for extra absorbency starting when my son was about 4 weeks old.  For the price I paid (got them on a 20% off sale, $4.80 for 3 pack), I'm really happy with them.

  • I really like the hemp and sherpa cotton doublers from Green Mtn. Diapers, they are reasonably priced too :)

    As far as cotton velour, I think it takes a ton of washes before it becomes absorbent enough to use as a diaper material. It feels great, so it would probably make for an awesome washable diaper changing pad!
