I tried this, only I stuffed them into my pockets and even though it does work and absorbs well, my ds is soooo sensitive that he developed red patches and what looked like large sores within 18hrs of doing this. I was changing him every hour and a half and this took place! It took 3 days of slathering Desitin and Pampers Sensitive sposies (the only sposies ds can tolerate and only short-term) and extra air-time after baths to clear it up. DS never cried or grumbled but I felt sooooo guilty and rotten. I'll never do it again.

Have you tried T-shirt fitteds with a cover? Kawaii PUL covers are pretty cheap and I have a good friend who LOVES them. Fleece covers are pretty cheap to come by and if you can sew, you could recycle wool sweaters from any local thrift store or salvation army store.

OR: Have you tried Pampers Sensitive sposies? Not my favorite option but they are the ONLY sposies my son can tolerate. If they work for you, you can easily return any unopened packages of the other sposies you still have to your closest Walmart without a receipt. They will issue store credit in the form of a gc that you can use for the Pampers Sensitive. I had to do this with all the Huggies we rcv'd at my baby shower bc I didn't have gift receipts.

Another idea would be to sell the diapers on CL, then use that money for some flour sack towels at Sams or Target. They are about $1 each. And some Econobum covers from cottonbabies. They have seconds sales frequently and you can get a cover for $4 or $5.
