only GMD will hold up for us. All others- including sbish snappless- are back up back ups.

This is all great to know- I just need to change more frequently than with wool- wasn't sure about the damp inside part.

my new plan

I didn't realize! They're so thick and chunky (the pants) I'll just make sure we change even more often. I thought microfleece was what we wanted- like a Lollidoo cover-- what do I want?

Microfleece is water repellant, it's the backing on my mama cloth.

But yes, better fleece works better and absorbency beneath is key.
great info as always!!
a happy mama with
