These are some great suggestions. The Darling Diaper is an AIO, right? Any suggestions for fitteds/covers? I like to be able to customize the absorbency of my diaper, like the pocket diapers, so I'm thinking about trying to make a pocket fitted with a wrap cover. But the thing about the narrower crotch PLUS the wider behind area sounds good. I just wish my kids had a bottom that would hold a diaper up! You guys are great!

Hey again- From your experience, do the knit or woven soakers hold up better through repeated washings and dryings? The outer layers of my hemp fleece soakers (knit) are just shredded, though I still use them that way, ghastly mess that they are. Should I try making soakers with an absorbent core of hemp or whatever, but with a piece of cotton flannel as the outside layer to take all the wear and tear better? Has anyone ever tried this? What kind of needle would one...
