Re: What to use for EC- particularly 'diapers'

Tetro Fitted Diapers are MADE for this! They are cotton flannel, so while they aren't super absorbent like stay-dry microfleece or anything, they are absorbent enough to hold 1-2 pees, and they are super trim under a cover!

They are perfect for what you're looking for, check them out here at the website, and here's a video so you can see them in EC action!

Re: What to use for EC- particularly 'diapers'

I saw those when I first started doing my EC research! They look super nice! But I have to say...I don't use anything special. We use prefolds w/snappis and covers and my kiddo wears onesies, too. He's about every 45 min. to an hour with a few extra depending upon when he ate, if he was just upset (crying can really turn him into a super soaker!), etc. He gives a little fuss to let me know and I rush him upstairs (yup, up the stairs!) and I have yet to be peed on or miss when given a cue from him. Now, I do have my fair share of misses but that's usually because I've missed his cue for me!

Re: What to use for EC- particularly 'diapers'

I just posted a longer reply on your other thread question... the one where you introduced yourself. Hope it helps and hope EC works out for you did you decide what you're going to try out? btw, I'm expecting my 3rd in a month and a half... sounds like we're due about the same time.

Re: What to use for EC- particularly 'diapers'

I am planning on using flats, no cover or wool until the newbie can fit into MEOS fitteds. I switched to them with my toddler when he was old enough to take his diaper off (he was less than a yr) and he could unsnap to go potty.

I was given a lambskin for the bed bc I will have the baby go coverless at night as well.

Re: What to use for EC- particularly 'diapers'

My favorite for newborns and non mobile babies are prefolds or flats, with or without covers. I like wool wraps or other velcro wraps best.

My favorite for mobile babies is motherease sandies or ecapants. Sandies smalls fit forever. My baby was 9 pounds at birth. She is now 11 months old and is STILL wearing the same sandies she wore as a newborn. Dappi pullons are super cheap and fit well over sandies. But so do most wraps.


Ecapants are "the" EC pants. The design is ingenious for EC. I use those for outings alot so that I dont have to take off the diaper and find a place to lay baby down to put back on. www.ecaware.com They are expensive, but if you use cheap flats and prefolds in the begining, the money you save can go for ecapants in the mobile stage.

But If I couldnt afford fitteds I would just continue on with the prefolds or flats. They get the job done just fine! You can still use the smalls when they outgrow them pinned. B/c then you can trifold them into covers. Since your ECing, you dont need to size up for absorbancy.

Once my babies are about 1 year old and walking we switch to cheap gerber trainers and the ecapants.
