Which covers fit over Sandy's?
 
I like the MEAF a lot because it seems he does better with more air circulation. Are there other options out there? My favorite flips and econobums just don't work and I don't have enough wool to use just that. My ideal would be: more breathable, pull on, trim, inexpensive and fit well over large sandys. I can sacrifice trim and pull on but the others are a must.
Thank you!

I should add that the only reason I'm looking for other options is because he has woken with red marks the past two nights. However, I think I could be snapping the sandys to tight around the thighs so I will loosen those tonight and see what happens!

We use a disana wool cover and love it. You can get them in a co-op for $21 new or about that same price used on FSOT. I got used because it was pre-felted, night-proven and lanolized. Since I was a newbie to wool, it was easier for me to take the plunge with a pre-loved wool soaker. :)

Definitely loosen the sandies. :) We've never gotten red marks on my chubby baby's thighs but they fit good and snug.

How about the Stacinator So Simple cover? We sometimes use one at night over a Sandy's stuffed with a trifolded prefold - that diaper is huge and the Stacinator easily fits over with room to spare. An added bonus are the fleece leg and waist bands - no red marks!!

I second Stacinator, any roomy fleece soaker would do, also. Fleece longies would be another great option.

I also think that fleece soakers/fleece longies will be a good fit and breathable as well. Fleece/wool soakers tend to be more full cut for better coverage :)

Thanks for the suggestions! I should have clarified though, I'm primarily looking for a daytime cover to go under clothes. I have three disana soakers (love!) for night time. I also have made several pairs of fleece longies but find that people mistake them for pajama pants AND they get compression leaks all the time and I usually end up with a big pee spot when babywearing...so I'm not feeling the fleece love these days. I am working on my first longies but it's taking forever so I need something in the meantime!
Maybe the solution is as simple as loosening the sandy's ! That would be nice :)

Did you add the extra layer of fleece through the wet-zone in your fleece longies? That should take care of compression leaks as long as the diaper isn't super soaked (and if it is then maybe try adding a doubler).

As far as the "pj pants look" I think if you stick with solid colors, especially darker/neutral colors, they will look more like pants and less like cute jammies :giggle:

I've read many posts about the coverage/easy-on/breathability of Bummis super whisper pants that are made of nylon and scrunch down under clothing...maybe try those?

Gen-Y Simplicity or Classic! I think the Universals are better for trifolding than bulky fitteds.
