Hi there ladies!<br><br>
I'm ordering a custom diaper cover for a friend who is waiting for her first baby and is just told me she plans on cloth diapering. I want to give her the option of a wool or fleece cover but in order for her to make an informed decision I need to spell out the differences between the two. I did a quick search in the diapering resources and archives but didn't find what I was looking for. Anyone have a link I can send or want to have a go at explaining the differences and why you'd want one over the other?<br><br>
Thanks hyenas!<br><br>
Also, do you have any ideas what colour and what kind or applique I should get for a baby boy born in November?

wool=natural fiber, breaths, naturaly anitbacterial, washing needs only when soiled with poo or starts to smell (if used often average about once a week), easy care, pretty, soft, when aired out after use unless ready to be washed doesn't smell like pee<br><br>
fleece=synthetic pollyester man made fiber, breaths, will start to smell of urin after a couple of diapers (even after airing out between uses), easy care, pretty, soft.<br><br><br>
ideas of design for an Autumn baby? FALL LEAVES (safe for boy or girl), pumkins/indian corn ears, corn stalks, acorns, pumpkin pies, apples, trees with changing season leaves, hay ride. I embroidered fall leaves in front of a pumpkin on a toffie colored cover for ds, really pretty, but probably would go for a carmel color (a lighter tan) to see better since I did it 'redwork" style embroidery. If the person is really good, maybe a turkey, pheasent, buck. just some ideas<br><br><br>
oh oh how about carmel apples and candy corns<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yummy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yummy">

I second what Reece said about the differences in the covers... I would also go with something fall themed for the cover....... some leaves or a pumpkin would be cute......

I think for a newborn boy in November I'd choose a slate or ice blue cover with a white snowflake on it, depending on where your friend lives and if they have snow. What a nice thing to do! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">
