Spike's got a Bumpy Day and a Nikky, and both covers work well for him. The Bumpy overall seems cut more generously -- wider crotch, higher rise. The best way I know to describe the difference is to...

I use All Free & Clear on Spike's Sugarpeas and the hemp prefolds we have, and we haven't had any problems with build-up or stinky hemp.

Just my two cents . . .

Good luck!

I'm a big fan of Spike-o's Bumpy. Wonderful fit, so trim, soft. Slap a folded CPF in the center, and bam! we're good to go.

We've got an Bumpy swim "Speedo" that I adore. Spike seems to like it...

Duh . . . Why didn't I think of that! We'll have to give Mr. Sun a shot if the stains are still on the CPFs when they come out of the washer.

Thanks!

I'm lazy. I fold it in thirds, lay it in a cover (our LiteWrap seems to work really well) then put it on Spike-o.

My poor Snappi and diaper pins are sitting neglected on a shelf somewhere . . .

I just fold the CPF in thirds either lengthwise (thinner sides over the thicker middle) or widthwise and slap it in the center of the cover. Which fold I use depends on which cover I'm using.

Peppermint-smelling laundry would be nice, wouldn't it?

Maybe it's just my whacked-out brain, but there are times when I get a whiff of the lavender, I think of sausage. Odd, non?

So I have three Snappis and have yet to try them.

Question for you Snappi users: does your kiddo stay dryer with the CPF secured around her or him in some fashion?

I'm curious.

Thanks!

Laura,

I have an unused OS and a used-once and in EC AF you can buy. The cover doesn't work for Spike-o, and the OS looks too much for him.
