I've been using nothing but prefolds and Nikky covers for quite a while and am just now venturing into the world of WAHMs, AIOs, etc. So I bought a bunch of stuff on the TP and made the mistake of getting all excited and opening everything at once and now ... I don't know what I have, exactly!

So here are the dumb questions: How do you tell the diff between fitteds and AIOs when they all have cute outer fabric? Are WIOs just wool AIOs? Do some AIOs lose their pee-proofness after a while? If so, can they somehow be re-peeproofed or must they now be used like fitteds, with separate covers? I have not yet acquired wool covers, but I want to, and I need to separate out the dipes that are ready to be used and the ones I have to save for covers ... I think I need a CD tutor to come to my house and walk me through everything, step by step!

This is all in the service of making CDing easier (!) so my DP and daycare lady will use them, since I seem to be the only adult I know IRL who can fold a prefold ... except for my one CDing friend and her DH, but they only use prefolds and can't help me with the dumb questions.

I guess I could just put them on the baby and notice which ones stay dry on the outside and which don't (guess what happened during his nap today!), but I'd rather not have to go through all of them with fingers crossed.

Thanks, mamas! If anyone knows the name of that spray and where to find it, please post! I'll see if I can tell the difference now, and save myself and DP some frustration ... BTW all the dipes I got are cute cute and fit nicely, so I'm pretty happy and looking for more ... gotta go lurk on TP some more.
