So I CD'd my DS and very much plan to do it again. However, I kind of failed with my fitteds + covers during the newborn period. I ended up having great success with OS BG pockets and used them till we toilet trained. I am pretty sure I'll be fine during the newborn period this time, since I now know which covers work and don't with the fitteds I have. The main problem I had was just not having enough of the right ones, and so having the smaller covers leak (mostly wicking up the top, but also through the legs - and I changed often).
However, another thing I never could seem to do was reuse the covers that did fit between washings. It just always seemed icky to me. I'm not talking about poop getting on it of course. Even when left out to air-dry the cover smelled like urine. Was I doing something wrong? Is it really possible to "reuse" the covers a few times before washing them? I did search through the archives but did not find someone with a similar issue. Advice? Experiences? Recommendations? All very much appreciated!
