Disana rawsilk liners are said to help heal diaper rash. In addition to silk's natural anti-inflammatory properties, silk absorbs up to 30% of it's weight in in fluid without feeling damp so it does have somewhat of a stay-dry effect too. (Again please note that this item is not going to boost absorbency of your baby's diaper - doublers are for that purpose.) Silk doesn't like heat, so if you wash them with your diapers, they will not last all the way through to potty learning. They are silk, after all. When you wash your hands after a diaper change, also hand wash the silk liner then. Keep a bar of Kiss My Face Olive Oil soap or a similar product at your sink for this purpose and you can wash your hands and the liner at the same time. Silk releases soil easily so they do wash up quite easily. They aren't intended for full-time diaper use, but to be used instead of creams for times of rash for silk's reported natural healing properties. These are significantly softer than other brands I've tried. Made in Germany. 100% raw silk.
Washing instructions: Wash by hand promptly in a mild soap or gentle wool wash product in warm water. Gently rub out soils (like spot cleaning a wool diaper cover). To dry, gently press flat between two towels to get excess moisture out then lay flat to dry. Do not put in washer or dryer.
Does take a bit to dry after they pee, so sometimes my baby is content with it and goes back to sleep and other times she is not. I don't personally believe that diaper rash is caused by wetness, at least not in my experience, so that is not why I purchased this. I purchased this to help my baby sleep longer & be more comfortable on errands when I may not be able to change her immediately. Also, babies tend to pee when they wake, so it makes sense that the liner might be soaking wet in the morning. I do think though, that if your baby goes #2 in it, it could cause a diaper rash the next time you use it if cold washing according to their instructions. I know that it will not last as long hot washing, but I'd rather know that it was clean for my baby. I just hand wash with hot water when she goes #2. She is also sensitive to diaper rash but for me what helps is using soap & frequent changes. I keep a little glass spray bottle of water with about a tsp of Dr. Bronner's Baby Mild.
the liner is supposed to help with rash. i had high hopes and used it overnight within a disposable diaper. our baby's entire area, however, turned red/pink. the liners would be soaking with pee when i changed him and so the wetness would just be sitting on his skin at night. very disappointed. these were not cheap. what did help me was the trukid eczema cream. paired with diaper cream, it healed the skin, and in addition to changing to a different diaper brand (bambo), has healed a very, very bad, stubborn rash.
My little one wets right through the nappy with liner. I am really disappointed.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of this product. We are sorry that it was not clear to you that this item is not intended to boost absorbency (doublers do this) but is simply a liner. Liners are used for keeping baby's skin away from the wet diaper. It is a moisture barrier not an absorbency booster. The silk liners are popular as barriers between irritated skin and wet diaper. If looking to boost absorbency please choose "doublers". Always feel free to contact us with any product concerns or questions directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for shopping with us!
We had to stop cloth at night once my son reached toddlerhood as he started waking up with bad rashes. Thanks to these silk liners we have been able to resume cloth. Hopefully the sensation of wetness will help him to stay dry through the night, and he has already had a few dry nights since we switched back.
We don't use them a lot, but really helps when redness occurs. I primarily use them at night and all redness is gone by morning :)
