I think I have to give up on fitteds. I'd like more fitteds for variety and because of the breastmilk poop explosions, but they're impossible to find. In order to build a good stash of nice fitteds, you have to either stalk and check your email for notices constantly, and slowly build up the stash, or find a WAHM who is open for custom orders.<br><br>
Well, hardly anyone is open. Those very few who are open don't have what I'm looking for (trim diaper, side snaps preferred but at this point I would take front snaps too, and a good fabric selection, most fabrics I'm seeing are boring, and hidden snaps which is hard to find).<br><br>
And I can't stalk anymore. I have things in my life that need attending too. I want to go back to school in the fall and I'll be homeschooling my 9 yr old. I have to start limiting my computer time soon, I don't want to devote so much time to diapers anymore.<br><br>
So I'm thinking of just throwing in the towel and getting a couple dozen prefolds and leaving it at that. My only fear is that I will be scrubbing poop off of wool covers a lot. I may end up with prefolds and Bumpy covers, which is boring, but I need easy now.<br><br>
I wish I could get a dozen or two nice fitteds and be done with it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying">

What about SugarPeas? They're retailed at several places, and Natural Babies has some in-stock right now: <a href="http://store.naturalbabies.com/products/results2.asp?Cat=SugarPeas" target="_blank">http://store.naturalbabies.com/produ...?Cat=SugarPeas</a><br><br>
I'm a prefold gal, so I can't give you a review, but I know a lot of people love their SPs.<br><br>
There's Kissaluvs too. Those are pretty easily available.<br><br>
Good luck mama! Remember, cd'ing is fun! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/partytime.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="partytime">

SPs do not have hidden snaps but IMO are a great workhorse diaper. For a long time, they were the bulk of our stash.

Well, I have had just about every WAHM diaper made and have sold most all of them recently as I just find myself reaching for prefolds most of the time. I thought I may regeret it but I haven't at all. My new passion is wool and so now I obsess about that. I'm almost ready to sell the last of my fitteds. . my Fluffymail but can't bring myself to do it just yet. . .

I know what you mean. IMHO, diapering is nowhere near as fun as it was two or three years ago -- when you could pick and choose at your leisure. I HATE the whole "race to see who can get it first" mentality. That's why I'm ordering a dozen or two Mudpies when she opens (along with my backup prefolds and Bumpys -- just like you!) and calling it quite.<br><br>
Oh, and i may order elbees if my # ever comes up. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"><br><br>

I too am in love with prefolds again! Thanks to the jellyroll fold! I uploaded these pics to show you of Nathan in a Cotton Pickin Creations premium prefold: <a href="http://www.PictureTrail.com/gid4568851" target="_blank">http://www.PictureTrail.com/gid4568851</a> done in the jelly roll fold. So far we've only had a teeny bit of poop escape once and every time I put it on him I'm better and faster than I was before!<br><br>
We also will be unable to stalk in a while and I've been preparing for it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

You know, this post stikes me as cosmic. I am in the process of doing just this. I will be selling off most of my dipes and going prefold-a-rama. They work so good and I love them. They take up less room and did I mention I love them? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

Luke's drawers and Bizzy Bee hive diapers are nice and both have hidden snaps. <a href="http://www.naturalbabies.com" target="_blank">www.naturalbabies.com</a>

I'm thinking of doing the same thing! I pretty much use prefolds anyway, but the stray fitteds I have seem to stress me out. I want to get rid of everything but FBs for dh, and prefolds for me....

I can't say that I have. I am a fitteds mama all the way. Prefolds just don't hold the same absorbancy that fitted do for us. Don't flame me. I do have my prefolds and I do like them for in the house, but for trips out, I can't be without my fitteds.

I would love the link for that jelly roll fold as well. It looks great! I have yet to even try a snappi yet. I just use a pf and bumkins cover, but look forward to venturing into new folds very soon!
