fitteds for babies who can't crawl/walk yet...

Do you like fitteds for babies who are immobile? I love the idea of fitteds because they are so cute, and breathe well, but my dd is only 9 weeks,so she can't move around yet. I'd like to go coverless, and going coverless with Fitteds seems like they work well on babies who can crawl and walk,but what about the babies who just kinda sit there? Do you like fitteds for your LO's who are so young? What are the pros to fitteds? Do you just always wear a cover with them on the little ones?? I"d love to go coverless, but I don't want to get everything wet every time she pees...I bought one, and i'm waiting on it to arrive...i'd like to know your opinions!

I go coverless all the time with my ds. He is 7 months old and isn't crawling (lots of rolling and scooting though). We've been going coverless for about 2 months while at home. I just check him a lot to make sure he isn't wet.

We went coverless with DD a lot since we started CDing her when she was just a couple months old. You just have to check often enough to make sure they aren't wet and getting everything and everyone wet too.

Re: fitteds for babies who can't crawl/walk yet...

ditto what the previous posters said. also, i have found that some fitteds are more absorbant than others and can go coverless more safely.

good mamas
cloth diaper mama on hyena cart
little beetle ones

all safe coverless for us.

eta and bumstoppers here on ds or on the whole shebang on hyena cart

Re: fitteds for babies who can't crawl/walk yet...

I wondered the same thing, we didn't start CDing DD until after she was walking. My kids are usually mobile pretty quickly but I was still feeling like maybe I should have some extra pockets or AIOs just in case. Good info to know!

Nadia is 3 months old and we go coverless all the time. Basically we only use covers to bed or on outings.
I like that I know when she is wet.
She isnt a very heavy wetter, and stays dry in Mutts a long time.
