Genius! I'm glad you said that.

Just unzip, change, and zip back up!
Wow, those are expensive if you don't make it yourself... are these also sold by WAHMs for less? Sounds good but pricey. I wonder how many I'd need.

Seriously, how cute it that! I guess since baby isn't wetting a lot at that point it was just enough to get the job done? How long were you able to do that?

I use only wool covers and you only need 3-4. More is always nice. Making your own if you know how to sew is really easy. I wish I had known about recycled wool and the wool sleep sacks. I also wish I had just started with only flats. It would have save us the trouble of buying different sized prefolds. I also wish I had known about diaperswappers before.
