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.
This is the expert to talk to for all thehelp youneed. She helped me figure out the problem with our first 3! She's amazing! I have never had trouble with wool I want to add.
