I'm looking at the cotton and the breathable poly versions for daytime use over fitteds. What do you think of them and where's the best place to get them? Oh, do they fit toddlers with chunky thighs?<br><br>
This is not going to be super helpful, so think of it as a bump...<br>
I've never used Nikkis, but I hear they are really trim, so I personally would not be inclined to buy them for use over fitteds. I hope someone else here can tell you for sure how they would fit over fitteds, though. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">
I have used them before, and I find that they did run trim/small. I would not use them with fitteds unless you size up. The inner liner does a good job of holding the diaper in place. I did have a problem with some of the velcro/aplix/touchtape turning back and so it wouldn't co-operate. I got mine used though, so maybe they were at the end of their time. HTH!
I have cotton ones. They work just fine. The best place to get them is <a href="http://www.babybunz.com/index.html." target="_blank">http://www.babybunz.com/index.html.</a> There are a couple of downsides to them. One is if you have a super soaker the cover gets a bit damp if the diaper is soaked, not a good over night cover, but a great daytime cover. Also they run a little big. They are a very trim cover.
I had the breathable poly ones and some cotton Nikkys with my first. These are very trim and run small- dd was in the 12 month size at 6 months and was not a large baby. They worked as wraps but not over fitteds. Didn't like the cotton ones- but I got these used and they were in pretty bad shape by then.
The cotton Nikkys and Nijis are so breathable, so trim. I LOVED them until I found wool <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> Yes they do run small. Fit better over prefolds, but if you size up they are fine over fitteds. The nice thing is they really are waterproof - I don't know how but they are! They are the only thing I will use other than wool. And if we are going out and I don't want a diaper butt I use one with a cpf and voila.
