Going to be a couple weeks before I can really test this, but I've made some tie on fleece covers (inspired by http://dirtydiaperlaundry.com/1-00-diy-no-sew-fleece-cloth-diaper-cover-video/)

My theory is that the front can be pulled out to allow for potty unities without undoing the whole cover. And that for single newborn pees, it may be possible to just switch out a pad folded flat or prefold.

My initial tests had compression leaking happening super fast with the fleece I already own, and I have a sewing machine, so I'm doing two layers. I've also run a line of elastic along each leg for a closer fit since I had elastic.

Also made some split-crotch pants. Since this is a winter baby, I made them with feet. Footed pants pattern from http://www.sewmuchado.com/2014/05/free-footed-baby-pants-pattern.html and then altered the waist of the pattern using the pictures and instructions from http://doityourselfec.blogspot.com/2008/01/three-seam-split-crotch-pants.html Since the actual download for those is now a broken link, I just went off the pictures. Extended the waistline of the pants by 1.5 inches in front and back, then over lapped them so that the center fronts were lined up.

Used the footed pants instructions for sewing the legs then used the split pants instructions for sewing the waist.
