OK, I just got my Bummis super whisper wrap - when I diaper her, do I need a snappi with the prefold? OR, can I just slip the prefold in? I just don't want to learn this the hard way...<br><br>
Also, what to do with the Bummis whisper pant? It's this huge plastic, elasticized underpant - what do I put under this? Does it work?<br><br>
Finally, what is your favorite thing to put inside the Bummis Whisper Wrap - a prefold or something else?<br><br>
Thanks for answering - I am so excited to begin my new adventure in CD. We start tomorrow (we've been using sposies and the 2 AIOs I own for 14 months now - shame on me). <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">:

How exciting for you! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
You can either lay it in or Snappi it, whatever is easiest for you. If you lay it in, put the front of the prefold under the flap.<br><br>
I use the Whisper pants I have over fitteds, they work but are kind of baggy on my guy. It works for hanging around the house and when the other covers are in the wash.<br><br>
The BSWW didn't work for us, so I don't know what is best to put in them.<br><br>
ETA - aww...take that bag off your head mama! You're CD'ing now right?! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

for the BSWW, I used a prefold and folded it in thirds. For the whisper pants, you could put that over a fitted diaper, or a snappi'd prefold.

I use prefolds most of the time - and when I'm not using my wool, I use my Bummis covers. I prefer to snappi my prefolds rather than just laying them in the cover - I like them to be more secure around her - but that's just my preference. There's no right or wrong way to do it. I'm assuming when you say "just lay it in" you mean trifolding the prefold right? That would work for the wraps, but not the whisper pants - but then you already know that, don't you. For the whisper pants, a fitted would work well, or a snappied prefold.<br><br>
HTH - have fun on your new CD adventure!!

we trifold an IPF & lay it in the bummis, & we have also tried the bikini twist with a UBCPF (it's bigger) & pinned it in. snappis are not our friend!

I just fold it in thirds and lay it in the wrap (slipping the end under the flap in the front). They work great. Even my DH "gets" it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
