I also had a question about g diapers. When he pees, is it ok to swap those lining things if the cover doesn't get wet, or should I change the cover everytime? Also, would the cover go in the pail with the other diapers, or would it be washed separately?

I ordered a cheaper (7.80) pocket diaper... The usual kind. lol. Microfleece inner part and pul outer part... The washing instructions say not to use hot water? I don't think I would ever not wash a diaper in hot water, but have you all ever heard of this before? All of my other pul is wash hot, dry on low/hang dry...

Fitteds and covers FTW!



:P
They're not pretty but GMD Workhorse fitteds are great. For overnight something like Squishy fitteds are awesome with the extra soaker. Oh I liked thirsties fitteds too.

Some worry about the PUL, but from what I remember you'd have to use the sanitize cycle to even get close to too hot for ruining it. I only run one of my cycles in hot and things are fine.

I agree. That's the same thing I do. Just maybe a couple more rinses cuz I'm a nut about rinsing.

Of course you do :wink: haha



Her name is Adrianna.



Here's a converted bleached prefold with fabric on the outside to make a very pretty fitted. I don't think I have a pic of her in a regular in bleached one with no fancy fabric. But it just looks like a fitted made out of prefolds haha. Here Scarlytt in it at her tiny little 6lbs.

Here's a similar diaper with a fleece cover and a bamboo trifold (same size as the other one) on her at her 11 1/2 lb self. Still fits :)

Here's some nb fleece longies she made me. They've fit from birth to now too. They were just a tad long at her 6lb self but they weren't too bad.

I can't find the post but this is for whoever asked about cloth with a newb. My baby is 6 weeks and I LOVE kissaluvs fitteds sz 0 with a thirsties cover. Bummis covers too but I found after about 10 lbs they didn't fit. Squshy butt covers rock (my fave) but they're on the expensive side

The hot water isn't hot enough to sanitize or kill any germs. I've always washed in warm or cold.

They used to sell several different brands online. Sears does too.
