I need to buy some new covers, and I'm totally confused! I'm on baby #2, and I am using my prefolds and pins from the first time around (which I love ). So far, I've been using my old covers too, since ds didn't wear smalls very long, and they're still in great shape. I have some Proraps and Bummis (both w/ velcro), and one Motherease snap-on. Now, dd is soon going to need mediums, and the velcro Bummies that ds wore for almost 2 years are in sad shape.

So what do I buy? I want something that is durable, not too pricey, and preferably with plastic snaps. I like the one ME that I have, but have only used it a few times, so not sure about long-term. Thought about trying the Bummis snap-on, but I like the two sets of snaps on the ME so you can adjust it at the waist and legs seperately. What else is out there? Suggestions?

Have you tried the covers at www.weebees.com? I have quite a few and they work really well, and aren't too expensive

I can vouch for the ME Airflow covers long term - these things are super reliable and wear like iron. If you've tried them and like them then stick with them. They'll be more reliable for you than the Bummis. I have some that are REALLY well loved and these things just never leak, even overnight. HTH,

Jenny

My most favoritest cover is side-snapping PUL from www.countrycuttins.com

I wish I'd gotten all my covers from her. They're reasonably priced, well made and cute.
