You end up covering up the cute prints/colors anyway. Then once I put a cover on it is pretty bulky for my active 20 month old. The thing that gets me is the bulk of the 2 closures. 2 sets of snaps on a hip cannot feel good. Or aplix and know what I mean. Am I alone? Or the only one brave enough to say it :LOL
I use fitteds but they are boring white ones. They are much bulkier than prefolds but easier to put on a squirming baby.

Pull up covers and ME OS are both very trim and you don't get that double layer thing going on.

You ladies are KILLIN me! I'm in the process of switching my stash of pockets to fitteds/covers because of a gross, nasty, mildew thing in the lining of the pockets when I waited three days to do the wash- just started back to work part time, and because of not using them during the day and my total exhaustion, just didn't wash. I just thought/think the seperate dipe and cover combo will be healthier for our situation right now. (I wash every two days now, still- I'm not up for that again)

I need to like my fitteds... I must like the fitteds!! I have avoided CPFs and snappis because when I tried it briefly, it didn't go well... the babe twists and turns and in general, goes nutso during changes and I can't get the prefold on so it stays in place. I am working on a Bummi SWW too, so maybe that will help.

I didn't know others avoided snappis with wool. I learn so much from you all!
