Need CD help!
For DS I've been using pockets. DD was just born 3 weeks ago and I got fitted for her, as well as pockets and AIOs. Here's what I don't understand, covers. Do you need as many covers as you do fitteds? Do you wash the covers every time you wash the fitteds? I thought I needed less covers than diapers, so I'm confused because they seem to be wet too. Thanks!

Congrats on your little one!

No you don't need as many covers as fitteds. What I did was let it air dry between uses and kind of switch back and forth between a couple. If one got poopy on it that went straight to the wash. HTH

PUL covers need to be washed when damp, soiled, smelly, or after 3 or 4 uses or so. I used to hand wash and hang dry my pul covers every day because I only had a few, but I got by that way fine.

I find wool covers to be easier to care for because they only need to be washed when soiled or once a week, and it is naturally antibacterial and stays good smelling for a long time! HTH!

I reuse my cover all day long unless it gets soiled or wet. I know when I had my first son, I had the same number of covers as fitteds since I used them only at night and that night time cover definitely needed changing by morning so it went in the wash. This time round though I use prefolds and covers. I don't worry if it is slightly damp, but if it feels wet then hang it up and grab a new cover.
