FBs are the first and only cloth diapers I've tried. I am so tired of my FBs. I don't like the way they fit. There's extra material in the crotch area that makes it a saggy butt fit. Ha Ha. Plus they ride low in the front and I don't like that.<br><br>
So with that said, I am looking into replacing all my FBs/JBs combos with wool covers using CPFs. It would be nice to find one where I didn't have to use a Snappi and could just lay in the CPF inside the cover. I really like the idea that I would only have to wash the wool covers once a week or so. And using CPFs would be so cheap and seem like they will perform well from what I've read. Oh and I want a really trim fit too.<br><br>
So I need to know your fave wool cover. I think I would prefer snaps although I've never used velcro, so I don't know? I don't think I want a pull-on cover because it seems like these they would outgrow very fast. It seems that if it had snaps or velcro then you could use them longer.<br><br>
I forgot to add that colors would be nice, as the plain ol' white FBs are not so "pretty" for a lil' girl, kwim? It'd be fun to have colors to choose from.<br><br>
Give me your best suggestions!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Thank You!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

If you don't want to snappi and you only want to wash covers once a week, you're going to have to buy a lot of covers! I snappi at home, but daycare just lays a trifolded CPF in the cover; when the diaper is just trifolded, we usually get some poop on the cover (even at this age - 20 months!). I find that a snappied CPF catches dd's poop about 80% of the time. Nonetheless, I have five wool covers, and I have to wash them all every couple of days.<br><br>
As far as wool cover types, we have Bumpy, Sugarbums, and Tuesday Bear. Our Tuesday Bear cover is definitely the cutest, but they all work great with trifolded or snappied diapers. Sugarbums is a very economical and trim wool cover that has a snap closure, if that's what you're looking for.

I think the wool wraps from patchwork pixie work PERFECTLY over my snappied prefolds. The covers are cut perfectly so that its big enough to cover the prefolds completely.

I JUST got my first Bumpy Wool Wrap (by Imse Vimse) and I am thrilled with it! I only use CPFs with no snappi or pins- I just fold them in thirds and lay them in the cover- and the Bumpy (which dd is wearing right this minute) works great that way. The size large has velcro at the waist and poppers at the legs- which is not as complicated as it sounds. Supposedly it can be machine washed on the wool cycle but I haven't had to wash it yet so I can't say for sure. But I am already thinking about replacing all my Proraps with Bumpy wool. They only come in cream color AFAIK, but they'd be pretty easy to dye with kool-aid, I think...

Well, I can't snappi because my dd is a squirmer <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">: But I have wonderful results trifolding a CPF and laying it in Fuzbombs or Tuesday Bear covers <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

I love our Sugar Peas wool covers. I can snappi a cpf or a can fold it in thirds and lay it in. I like that it works either way for me. There is only one thing I would change about them and that is the bulk. They are definately not the trimmest wool cover. That said I wouldn't trade them for anything else.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/oops.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="oops">T I like your dd's name Tinkerbelle Mama, very good choice <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

Why thanks Emily!! Pretty middle name isn't it? We thought about using it for a first name but Chloe Anneliese just sounded so right. We went back and forth on the spelling but finally chose this spelling and I'm glad we did. Do you pronounce it with an a as in apple or a as in all? We pronounce it with an a as in all. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Anneliese Margaret is named after my grandmothers. My grandma's name is german and pronounced with an a like in all. Sounds like Anna Leeza. We americanized it and pronounce it with an a like apple and like Ann Eh Lease. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
