I have some questions about what is available in a pull-on cover.<br><br>
I have looked at bummis whisper pants (love the price!), but some reviews I read said they are not so good for skinny babies. DS is 17 months and very slim with skinny legs.<br><br>
I am wanting something to pull up and down - he likes this better. Plus, we are going to do some potty learning, and I would want them to put over his training pants when we went in the car later to protect the car seat.<br><br>
What are good options for a pull on cover that is lightweight and thin, that will fit a skinny babe?<br><br>
Thanks.

I like dappi more than bummis, but haven't really tried any others. They both fit fine on my toddler and she's not chunky by any means.

Dappi nylon covers from <a href="http://www.little-lions.com" target="_blank">www.little-lions.com</a> , only $4.50 for 2 of them, shipping only $1. So for $5.50 you have two covers. These look bulky, but squish down to nothing and they are leakproof. Plus NO red lines at all! I dry mine in the dryer and they have held up great. I use them on my skinny newborn (newborn) and my 2.5 year old ds (large) and they work perfectly. And for the price they can't be beat. For me it is wool or dappi nylon covers.

Cloth eez hands down they are nylon thin breathable simple pull on off but also have side snaps which in the case of a messy diaper can be a Godsend. We used these over prefolds fitted trainers. They were super when she PT.

I use the Gerber ones, and my 17 mo. old wears the smallest size, 0-3 mos. I use them over prefolds and alone as swim diapers.

Bumkins makes some cute pull ons. I also have a Blue Penguin POSO (pull on, snap off). These are available plain at Green Mountain and a couple of prints other places.

Another vote for Dappis <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Wool or Dappis here...<br>
Dappis are cheap and easy, and I've never had a leak. We still use medium on our 32lb 3 year old at night. We could use a size up, but oh well.

I didn't even think of wool even though I think it is great. It isn't the cheapest though you can often find it used on the tp or ebay.

If you are looking for wool, I have had great luck with Luxe Baby and Dunk N Fluff. Not the least inexpensive, but if you only need a couple, its not too terrible.

I vote wool too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> There are usually great deals on the tp, and knit wool shorts or pants can double as clothing(my fav). <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I did used to use the dappi pull-ons when my older two were in dipes though, and they were alright.

Thanks for all the suggestions!<br><br>
We do do wool alot (trying to satisfy my knitting addiction, LOL!) I just wanted something to be waterproof with compression when he has accidents in the car, and perhaps not a thick thick diaper under it.<br><br>
I hadn't thought of dappis, great idea, and even cheaper than bummis. There is a girl here who started a cloth diaper store only about 35 miles from us, and she carries those, so I can even get them without shipping.<br><br>
Thanks again!
