Most covers will probably smell like pee, especially with a 2 year old. I noticed when my daughter turned 2 that her pee now has a different smell to it, so I always have to rinse out her night diapers or the whole house smells from the diaper pail. When I was using grobaby for naps and nights I had no problems with the cover smelling after the nap, but in the morning I HAD to put the cover for washing.

If you want to reuse the cover more often you can try changing the diaper more often so the pee doesn't have a chance to soak into the mesh much.

SoftBums will give you a great trim fit. And they have really good aplix

I have to agree. When my 4 YO wears cloth at night it knocks me over in the morning, and her diapers are brand new, so I KNOW it's just her pee.

I started hand washing the FLIP/Grobaby covers with a little hand soap that has tea tree oil in it and it helps a LOT in between regular washing.

i have been using flip covers and i dont normally have a prob with pee smells. this is just for regular day use. i change every 2 hours which i think is pretty good. i wish toddler pee didnt stink so much! my 5 month old can use these over and over no prob!
