I've liked different ones for different ages. The BSWW seems to do pretty well across the board...but I've heard the thirsties covers are even better.

I used Bummis SWW and Bumkins and liked the Bummis better. The Bumkins are thinner and seemed to leak faster, though neither generally truly leaked. Just I would change dd and the Bumkins would feel really wet when the Bummis just felt damp.<br><br>

I like bummis - the cow print ones worked really well for DS. They don't work so well for DD.<br><br>
My favorites are Imse Vimse Bumpy's and Biobottoms. It all depends on the shape of your child, IME. Bumpy's worked great for DS and the Biobottoms are working great for DD.<br><br>
I hate, hate, hate prowraps. Yuck!

Love, love, love our thirsties for trifolded pf! The gussets do a great job of holding the pf in place. My little one is 12+ pounds, and we still use the xs cover for trifolded. We use the small cover for everything else. I like bummis for when they are older, but I never trifold with my bummis.

I also love the Imse Vimse covers, so soft and the fit for my ds is perfect.<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

I purchased one thirsties cover and it didn't really fit well, I think it definitely depends on your baby. I also found them to be too plastic feeling (similar to proraps).<br>
I like the soft ones like WWB, IV, and Nicky, but to be honest I always grab for the Bummis SWW because they are amazing!

I've only tried Bummis and Proraps<br><br>
I like the Bummis Snaps (seemed to fit DS better than the velcro ones)<br><br>
I don't like proraps... they don't fit ds very well.

I bought some from a WAHM at <a href="http://www.redearthoriginals.com" target="_blank">www.redearthoriginals.com</a>. They are so cute and she has sooooo many cute fabrics. They worked OK for the most part, but now I think they are too small and it is time to get more b/c they are leaking now.<br><br>
I also use ME. The covers NEVER leak with the ME-OS, but the prefolds seem to slide around in there a bit. And I've never really like the snappi, though I have tried them.<br><br>
I think I'll try BSWW next. Seems to be consistently popular!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

Imse Vimse organic cotton cover works best for us for trifolding. It's nice and trim and snug. No leaks.<br><br>
I want to add that thirsties are great covers, but they really don't do well for tri-folding. The gussets are too deep.

We have been using thirsties cover almost exclusively for our trifolded prefolds, and I have loved them.

Only tried the bumkins of listed choices, I think it's so-so. I like it best when it fits really tight, but a prefold would always seem to wiggle around more it it (they are way cute though)<br><br>
Imse-vimse organic cotton wraps have completely impressed me, once I got one I dunno why I waited so long. And it's great for trifolding prefolds in.<br><br>
(ok, forgot I have a thirsties cover, but have never used it for a trifolded prefold).
