I use them, they are much smaller than the OS. I have a few of the snap ones, but mostly Velcro, the spacing on the snaps is just about the same add the OS, and I don't think there's enough or enough different settings for a growing newborn. Other than that my only complaint is that the widths of the crotch are inconsistent. I have someI can stuff easily, then I have others that I can hardly stuff at all, even the inserts vary in width.

Your covers probably don't have an issue. They might, but the smell is probably from buildup on your prefolds. Stripping those is easy. What I would do is a hot wash with a small squirt of blue dawn (don't use the green) and then boil them until there are no suds or smells.
I have never seen RLR at a store. Maybe a local crunchy mom/baby shop if you have one. We have a few here and I think one carries it. I got mine online and forgot to use it last time I stripped lol.

You can usually tell by the names haha. They're typically family owned, small shops with tons of awesome stuff in em. Two I can think of around here are Granola Babies and Belly Sprout...you can kinda tell they're natural/crunchy stores.
I got a small bottle of blue dawn for like a buck at Walmart. And I've stripped like 3/4 times since we started CDing so the bottle is more than half full. The cocalo inserts are thinner than the prefolds, they rinse cleaner because they are trifolded.

Woot Woot!! I ordered my rental today. Found out I can switch our truck insurance and pay less than HALF a month for the exact same coverage, so we don't have to give up diapers!!!




And if any new mama is looking for a rental Jen at earthycrunchymom.com is the sweetest and most helpful person who doesn't mind your million newbie questions lol
