Snappi'd prefolds under wool?

Does anyone do this? I love my wool covers and want to use them more and since I cant afford to buy a bunch of fitteds, i opted to get prefolds. Do they hold up well under wool? Do you find them coming loose or getting a lot of poo in the wool? My boys are almost 7 months old and on solids so it isnt ebf poo anymore. Thanks!

A lot of mama's do this! I used to use a Snappi on my prefolds but now I prefer my Boingo's. We only use wool covers and have mostly flats and prefolds with a few WH fitteds for DH.

We use flats and prefolds either pinned or snappis. All we use is wool. My little one is not a heavy wetter though.

99.9% of the time Poppy wears snappi'd prefolds under wool and has since birth. It is our absolute favorite stash and we will be using the same for our squish due in Feb. We rarely had any poop on her covers. Far less in fact then when we used trifolded prefolds in PUL for our other kids.

Poop gets on the cover more often than if I use a mother ease Sandy, but that is because NOTHING gets past the elastic on a Sandy, lol. But yeah, I use prefolds snappied under wool.

Yes we love prefolds under wool! I will say that once they are really mobile they snappi did not work well for me as the 3rd leg would always come loose. Pinned prefolds and flats get a great fit and no snagging wool.

I am not a fan of pfs under pull up style soakers. I love wool and prefolds in the nb stage, but there was some poo leakage when we used this combo - especially if baby wasnt changed immediately (not a problem most of the time). I will be making some NB/sm fitteds next time around. If you have basic sewing skills you can make Rita's Rump pocket fitteds out of old flannel sheets and stuff them with your pfs.
