Hi all-

A few days ago I asked about breathable PUL covers and someone recommended diaperaps. I ordered 2 of the cotton/poly blend ones that say on the description "allows air to circulate." And i think someone here said they were "breathable PUL." They came today and they're nice covers. But the PUL doesnt seem any more breathable than any other PUL. In fact, they seem very similar to Pro-raps but with a cute pattern. They're cute and all, but I am not sure what makes them breathable.

What am I missing?

They have microscopic (sp?) holes in the PUL. My DD sweat like crazy in proraps, but alway had a nice cool bottom in diaperaps. The only reason we still don't use them is I have decided against velcro. But I really loved our diaperaps. Infact even though I know I would use wool for any future babies, I am having a hard time even thinking about letting go of my diaperaps. I have some REALLY cute ones.

when we first started cd'ing years ago using a diaper service we used diaperaps because thats what the service offered and I had no idea of the other options out there really.
Honestly I really do like diaperaps with trifolded prefolds. In fact they are probably my favorite cover for trifolded prefolds.
what was said about the microscopic holes is true. And we as well had horrible luck with proraps...in fact I *hate* them. I'll take a diaperap over a prorap any day.

I too do not get Proraps... I could never get a good fit with our prorap... But, our Diaperaps always gave a nice snug fit
