wool mama doesn't know how to use fleece.

I love my wool, but I thought I'd try some fleece too.

I have these cute fleece pants and now I'm not sure what to do.
Can I use the fleece pants as covers?
Do I wash them every time or can I just let them dry like wool and resuse them?

Any input would be great!

Thanks!

as long as they are 100% poly you can use them as a cover, they do need to be washed after a day's use though..

We them as a cover all day and just change the diaper. Is this ok?

Yup. We use a lot of fleece and I love it. Also, wash them with some fabric softener and they become much more waterproof. A Mama gave me that tip the other day and it was a lifesaver!

yes, 100% polyester fleece will work. try to use a thicker fleece if you can. i have tried alot of fleece and was very dissapointed by it. i finally found some that can last my ds all day! you can use fleece pants as a cover and pants in one. it makes diaper changing so much easier! and if they get wet, you can let them air dry out and reuse them. when its time to wash just thow them in with your dc's clothes. love it!
