Re: Your favorite covers over flats?

I use Flips and Econobum covers over a origami folded flat. I do not use a snappi or pins, just let the cover keep it in place. Kimber is wearing a flat under a econobum cover right now with no pul touching the skin.

Re: Your favorite covers over flats?

I almost forgot I started this thread. Thanks for the responses!

I'm thinking the Imse Vimse and Nikky cotton are my top choices. I want something as soft and natural as possible. I only use flats during the day, and I like the breathability of the cotton. I don't mind changing often.

Weehuggers were great at first, but didn't work for us in the long run. I didn't like the aplix mittens. They were too scratchy and curled up horribly. The bamboo flaps retained moisture and gave DS rashes on his lower abdomen. The rise is also too low for my guy.

About a month? If you want, I'll take a pic when DS wakes up.

It didn't matter too much for us because DS outgrew the rise on the size 1 when he was only 11-12 lbs.

Instead of dealing with Blueberry customer service (ick), I'm just gifting them to my girlfriend who's due next month. The materials themselves are good quality, and the covers should make it through another LO.

Did you line dry them or put them in the dryer? I really love weehuggers and I hope the velcro doesn't curl They are by far the best fitting cover I have!! I'm really worried now!

I wouldn't worry too much. It was mostly on one particular cover, and I purchased mine right when they came out. I think there might have been a few issues with the early covers.

The fit on your LO is wonderful.
