Fleece liners will help him to feel dryer. It could just be that fleece covers are not working for you. Have you tried any PUL covers? They may help. A prefold can definitely last more than 2 hours,...

It could be that even a small amount of nursing is enough to keep it away for you. Have you ever taken your basal temperature in the morning? It would help you to see when you do ovulate.

A prefold, doubler and cover works the best for us. At night, DD needs natural fibers against her skin or she'll get red. Even though she can feel the wetness, it never seems to bother her.

DD loves the blocks we got from Plan Toys. They have a few different sets. She also likes her Tree Blocks, they are the ones that still have the bark attached and are in all different shapes.

The Duo wasn't out when DD was a nb, but we used Thirsties XS. Sizing wise, you should be fine with them at the newborn stage. Once the cord fell off, they were my favorite covers to use. Before the...
