I didn't read all the replies.
I really like prefolds with a snappi and proraps (for the gussets). I have less blowouts with that than with a disposable. And no problems with wet leaks until they get REALLY wet -- like overnight or the cover wasn't properly covering the diaper. I'm not sure I'm brave enough to try wool on a newborn where it would get pooped on a lot. If you really want wool, would an already felted cover made from a recycled sweater be easier to wash? I've only used a couple of fitteds. They're nice, but so much more expensive and at some point you'll need to replace the elastic.
Thanks , that makes sense in a way i couldnt think of without doing it myself. I.am thinking of recycled wool sweaters vs pul but cant figure it out yet but i hear the wool isnt as good as the big brands:eyesroll
