For anyone who does this, I'd like to know how it works. Do you use them for a day and then wash them or do you use them repeatedly like wool longies before washing?

If they are dry when I change the fitted then I leave them on, if they are wet on the inside then I change them.

I have a pair of Divine Bonny Pants from <a href="http://hyenacart.com/DivaDesigns/" target="_blank">Fishsticks</a> and I really like them. I have heard you can use old navy performance fleece pants but I haven't tried it yet.

I was just about to start a thread on this. I want someone to convince my dd to be willing to wear fleece pants! I bought a pair for her and she wore them once, then wouldn't wear them again. I thought maybe she didn't like the color so I bought a different color and she wore them once, and now she won't wear them either. She wears cotton-blend sweatpants without complaint but I really wanted to get out of putting a diaper cover on her. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:

Have you tried recycled wool longies? Maybe she doesn't like the texture?

It's possible, and I've thought about wool, but besides the expense, I don't care for hand washing and lanolizing. I would do it anyway if she were rash-prone or if I decided to become an all-natural purist, but she's not and I'm not.

Oh, and P.S. I just used regular 100% polyester fleece pants from Old Navy and they worked like a dream the 2 times she allowed me to put them on her.

We use the Old Navy ones, and they work great for us. She has two pair, and I change if they get wet. She wears them with fitteds so her pants don't really get wet unless she has a super pee (she is going through a growth spurt).<br><br>
These are the ones we use, and, bonus, they are on sale!<br><a href="http://www.oldnavy.com/browse/product.do?cid=37231&pid=507130&scid=507130012" target="_blank">http://www.oldnavy.com/browse/produc...scid=507130012</a>

Yep, that's what I've got, some Old Navy fleece pants. I also have a pair of some unknown brand that work just as well. I think any fleece will work. I've asked for more for holiday gifts.<br><br>
I have been switching the two pair I have for a day since they are the same color. My question is, should I only use them for a day and then throw them in the laundry or I can use them repeatedly for a week before washing like I would wool?

I would just do the sniff test to figure out when they need to be washed.

I rotate mine out with other covers. Since we have had spring like weather most of this winter, we have only had about 5 cool days. I would wash as often as you wash pul/other fleece covers. I try to do mine every laundry day if that helps.

I used to rotate 2 pair throughout the day, letting one pair air out between diaper changes. then I'd wash them when they got too stinky.

I've used the Old Navy, Carters and the LL Bean fleece pjs. The Old Navy worked excellent, the Carters not as well and the LL Bean are my favorite. Juliacat, did you try a different brand of fleece? I have found the Old Navy to have tighter elastic in the waist and maybe she's uncomfortable with that.

The sniff test it is. Otherwise, just wash on wash day with the regular clothes. TY everyone.<br><br>
I didn't know LL Bean made fleece pjs. I didn't know anyone made fleece pjs. I'll have to check those out.<br><br>
Ya know, I don't really like to wear fleece, myself. I find it sort of suffocating. I much prefer knit cotton. I got a robe for my ds at Old Navy. I didn't pay attention when I bought it that it was fleece. I was sure he'd put it on once after a shower and refuse to wear it again because of the way fleece sticks to wet skin. He really likes it, though. Go figure.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug">

LL Bean's fleece pj's are a hot ticket item. Even on Ebay they typically go for a lot, though this week I've seen quite a few for lower than usual prices. They wear beautifully; the two pair that I have are on their third child at least (I bought them used) and still look like new. Some other brands like Lands End also make fleece pjs, but for leak protection nothing beats the LL Bean ones.

Suposedly anything fleece pants that are 100% poly should work. We love the Old Navy ones because they are nice and thick but I just found some on sale at Gymboree this week that we will be trying. Just make sure they are 100% polyester and not a blend.
