Breathable covers for fitteds and prefolds

I usually use my proraps/pfs and FB, but I think that DD is getting a heat rash from being in the PUL overnight.

I do have 1 mai mai wool cover and a stacinator fleece cover that I would consider breathable. I would mainly be using them overnight, so they need to hold up to a heavy wetter.

I'm sure that wool and fleece are great, but are there any other options out there?

Re: Breathable covers for fitteds and prefolds

If you don't want to go with wool or fleece I'd say try a MotherEase Airflow. They allow air in around the side snaps. I've never had one leak even when the dipe was soaked.

I use fleece pockets or fitteds covered with wool at night. Works great. I use MEAF a lot during the day, including naps, and I don't notice him bum feeling dank like it does sometimes in pockets. I don't do Proraps, but I'm sure they hold the heat in too.

Perhaps a layer of fleece to keep her bum a bit dryer and a ME airflow cover

Well, I'm not much help. I only use wool and fleece over my pfds and fitteds. No rashes or hot heiney here Wool and fleece wraps are my favorites. A pull on wool cover works best for us at night/ex: Aristocrat or Disana organic pull on wool cover.
