The best diaper and cover I made so far absorbency wise are two layers of fleece RRP with a doubler of 2 layers of terry and half a prefold folded in thirds. The cover was two layers of fleece. This worked the best by far but was so bulky, the poor girl couldn't sit up without rolling backwards. Anything else or any other combination just leaks (soaks through) in a couple hours- except a prefold bikini twist with a prefold insert and Gerber plastic pants. But she hates the plastic pants because she hates sitting still for me to pull them on her and I think they irritate the eczema on her thighs. Not to mention she now has a little diaper rash which I thought was supposed to be remedied by going to cloth.
So from those of you that have soaking babies and have made your own, is there anything I can do to make a diaper without PUL? If not, I guess several yards is a month's worth of disposables so its worth it anyway - I just wanted to cover my bases. Thanks in advance!
