Re: Not getting this fleece diaper cover thing...

I often put a doubler in the front, folded in half, if DS is only going to wear a PF.

You definitely have to increase the absorbency of the diapers, b/c fleece and wool can start to wick wetness though the fabric once a diaper is wet on the outside. Some mamas may not want to do this in order to use fleece or wool covers, but we have to do it b/c my DS gets rashy in a PUL cover and getting wet all the time is definitely not an option.
I agree! I would try adding more absorbency first. If that doesn't work, I would try different covers. Not all fleece is created equally. Some types are more water resistent than others.
