Is it true that you can use fleece pants over a fitted or a pf and it will work like a cover? It seems like I heard that a while ago. If this is true I will have to get a whole stash of them. It would be so convenient this winter.

It's always worked well for me. I make them myself. I wouldn't trust them for a 3 hour car ride, but they've been fine for naps and everything else. I've heard the pants from Old Navy work well and they're not too expensive. It's definitely very convenient for winter and I feel like it's nice and breathable too.

I think they would work since I use a fleece cover during the day. I wouldn't use them if the child was sitting for a long time. Wetness is attracted to the pressure spot with fleece. I made that mistake with AIO fleece diapers overnight once. Only one spot was wet the next morning. Right at my son's tailbone!

You can always try wool pant soakers. There are many on the market and patterns too if you can knit!

What a great idea!!!

That would save money too on covers I'd think

But what about poopy leaks???

Would this work as a cover over all in ones at night too?
