Re: Gentle covers for trifolding?

I love the grovia shell as it is so trim through the crotch too, and the mesh is softer against their skin, instead of just the pull, especially if you are padfolding

Re: Gentle covers for trifolding?

no red marks on my 16 month old.

I have had some trouble with my 3 month old, but not from the elastic, it was just over all redness, and for her not breathing enough with wetness, and also diapers were not clean enough, we had trouble with the hard well water. But it was not red because of the elastic. See even the legs binding are covered in the mesh. And since it is such a trim close fit, the prefold or flat cannot move, so should be less shifting, perhaps leading to less rubbing that can happen with others.

If this makes sense.
Just an observation. I am in no way a pull cover expert. As for all my years I always used wool, until we moved here and had challenges geting our fitteds clean and went to flats. But knowing my babies are very sensitve to synthetics, I think the grovia the best. I think the mesh inside helps to maybe get a wee bit of air flow into the diaper. Not major, but a bit.

You could probably tri fold in a Loveybums wrap- jersey would be best I would think

I was thinking about this but Im not sure about sizing. I tried these long ago and I remember them running large. I was thinking maybe getting a medium? DD is 18lbs. I figure trifolding is going to take up a lot less room than snappi'ing.

I prefer the Econubum to the Flip. I used to be bugged by the exposed snaps, but then I realized...they don't ever really touch the baby and he doesn't ever have a complaint/problem with them.

I also like econobums better than flips. I think the single row of snaps is more comfy for baby.
I'm surprised but I also like the diaper safari cover too. I oonly have one but it held in the big ebf poop without leaving red marks.
this baby has chubby thighs fwiw.
