Do you need a cover/wrap with fitted diapers?<br><br>
I was just admiring some angel wraps fitted diapers and thought it would be a shame to have to cover them up.<br><br>
I'm new and confused!<br><br>
Thanks,<br><br>

Hi there!<br>
Fitted diapers don't have a waterproof layer in them, so yes, they are usually worn with a cover. There are some mamas here that use fitted diapers without covers, but they are very good about changing their babies after every pee - before the diaper has a chance to leak. We change every 1 1/2 to 2 hours, not at every pee, so we like waterproofness!<br>
AngelWraps AIOs look the same as AngelWraps fitteds, but they do have a waterproof layer in them, and can be worn on their own. We have 14 or 15 Angelwraps AIOs and love them! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br>

I have fitteds that I have made that my toddler runs around coverless in for up to three hours with no leaks at all, the outside of the dipe isn't even damp.<br><br>
*Most* fitteds need a cover, but there a some out there that don't. Like the BugEBoo hemp fitted I have..that thing can go overnight with no cover! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/jaw.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dropjaw">

I don't use covers but, we change often... If I had to guess we go threw about 20-30 diapers a day....<br><br><br>
If you don't want to change right after your child is wet it would be best to go with a cover over the diaper..<br><br><br>
HTH,<br>

I was just thinking the same thing while I was browsing the Angel Wraps site! They have a HUGE list of fitteds on their "seconds" page, and they are so adorable! If I bought some AW's fitteds, I wouldn't dare cover their cute little patterns. If the Angel Wraps fairies are listening, I think they should make more diaps for <span style="color:#0000FF;">boys</span>- seems like most of their fabric patterns are for <span>girls</span>... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

You know, you can get a custom order fitted diaper for the same price as the diapers that are instock.<br>
I like Angel wraps too.<br><br><br><a href="http://www.angelwraps.com/fabricmenu/index3.htm" target="_blank">Woven cottens</a><br><a href="http://www.angelwraps.com/fabricmenu/index4.htm" target="_blank">Flannels and Knits</a>

I just HAD to order a quick-dry AIO in the flames print- too cute!!! But I STILL think they have more girlie prints than boyish stuff... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug"> JMHO...<br><br>
But, if you can $afford$ it, Angel Wraps are the BEST quality, beautifully made diapers, not to mention CUTE, and Daddy-able because of the velcro. A+++...

AND... I asked Amy if she would use my fabric for my dipes if I wanted, i.e. if I bought a little fabric and sent it to her to make my dipes from and she said yes! She said it wouldn't change the price much as the shell fabric is the cheapest part of it all, but you could go to a fabric store and buy some cool boyish fabrics and have her make your dipes from that! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br>

When we are at home or someplace I can watch I let her go without a cover- becasue I feel the same way- too cute to cover up- but if I am out- we need a cover. But you wouldnt believe how manytimes I have taken her down to her dipe to show it off!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">
