So I am thinking of switching..

to all PF's, fitteds and maybe even pre-fitteds and covers. Does anyone else do just those? We have been doing a combo of those with pockets for several months now, and while I love the convienience of a pocket, I hate how they feel all fake (like I am not really CDing or something, I know it is silly!) plus I seem to have a lot more leaks with pockets than I ever do with a PF/fitted and a cover. Would having fitteds in sya, a babysitter situation or church nursery situation be a problem, you think? I mean to me they are easy peasy, but pockets don't have the seperate cover to "confuddle" the sitter, kwim? Also those of you who use pf/fitted exclusively do you find that your overnight diapers leave a little rash on dc's lower tummy in the am? Sometimes I find this when I use a PW for overnight use. Thanks ladies!!

I love my prefolds and covers. Wiggle Worm Bottoms are my favorites as far as covers go. I have ONE pocket and its a dark color, so staining isn't really an issue, but this is just the easier way to go. Plus you can tye die all your prefolds and when you do finally get done diapering, you can use them for rags and stuff. I have some that I keep in the car for when I forget to roll up the windows. They're just the right size to cover the wet part of the seat...And for babysitters and such, just tell them to trifold and lay it in the cover, that's what I do anyway.

Re: So I am thinking of switching..

I just use prefolds, fitted and wool. I made some pockets and sold them because I didn't like them. I also have sold all but 2 of my PUL covers that I made.

LOVE my stash just like it is

No rashes after nights (and we use PW's too) maybe your cover is rubbing?
