Do you use different kinds of covers for different situations? Please share <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

No - I personally hate having to match diapers to covers to pants, kwim? I like having pieces that work well in any situation so I don't have to think about it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
Although - having said that, if I were going on a long car trip I might use a PUL cover to prevent compression wicking. Otherwise I just use wool all the time.

I used to be a one cover kind of gal. I used Alexis Featherlites exclusively and loved them... they worked perfectly and fit over any dipe. Then I switched to wool. I have some covers that only fit over certain dipes... but it's a good excuse to buy more wool. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

Using a more waterproof diaper cover for a long term/compression situation is a good idea.<br><br>
I have a variety of covers, but they all fit over all the types of fitted I have.<br><br>
I guess I do match a dipe and cover to the fit of the clothes dd will be wearing. That can be a pain, but I have whittled down our collection to FB for those occasions that call for a trim dipe, and bodinks fitteds as our "spares" I like Rikki covers for a good fit over many wahm dipes. Bumpy cotton covers are very soft, but mine started wicking as they aged.
