Now we have DS2 who is 2 months. We've used cloth since day one including a varied stash of FB AIO, Charlie Banana one size, BG 4.0, fitted WAHM cotton things, a Thirsties fitted, prefolds then a Thirsties duo cover, a couple Thirsties pro wraps, a couple soft bums covers and one sprout change cover.
I had thought that I'd go with all prefolds this time, since they're the cheapest, but so far I'm not living them and I'm missing the pocket diapers when they're in the laundry.
Moving forward i need to modify this stash and i have questions about how to do this.
This new LO seems to be very sensitive to feeling wet, so the prefolds need to be changed super often, creating the need for even more of them than usual. Is there any way to modify a prefolds system so that babies don't fell so wet? I'm imagining the use of micro fleece here, but have no idea how. Also, I'm really unhappy with the Thirsties covers. The Velcro doesn't hold well and the snaps on the duo come undone with the slightest tug. These are brand new so that's not the issue. The sprout change cover is cool except that only the leg holes adjust, not the waist. Weird! I like the soft bums covers because they're lined with micro fleece which seems to help keep liners in place, so I'm able to use those old BG liners.
Here are my questions:
1) can i make prefolds more comfy for my dry-loving baby?
2) any clever/cheap ways to use my old BG Inserts, keeping in mind that baby wants to fell as dry a possible?
3) what are some good, affordable cover brands?
4) have any of you gone from pocket diapers to mostly prefolds and not missed them?
