I cannot believe that Econobums are my favorite COVER!

I've been CDing for 4 1/2 years...I've spent a small fortune trying out many of the different systems known to diaperswapper junkies, but ever since I tried an econobum diaper cover....on a whim when I was out of town and my sposies were letting me down and I happened to be near a cottonbabies store...I fell in love! I was already a die-hard flats user....but the combination of a padfolded flat (I love GMD small flats and diaper rite small flats the best) and an econobum cover is the BEST I have found. It is SO trim!!

My 14 month old is VERY tall for her age, and weighs about 25lbs...she is on the middle snap setting for the rise, and the second to last snaps on the sides.

I've been using Flip covers for overnights (with an organic flip insert and fleece liner), but my econobum covers are my workhorse covers. They fit nicely under ALL clothing...the elastic and snaps are holding up great, and they wash and dry very nicely and quickly.

Here is a pic of the trimness!!

I thought that they were soooo plain and boring, but I got a good deal on two on Spot's and tried them for the heck of it, and they're now my favorite covers. They're way better than Thirsties and Blueberry, imo.

I agree I have flips and those too. I wish they were velcro. They do have a great fit!

I love my Econobums too...they are actually the only cover I can use at night w/the stay dry insert + organic flip that doesn't gap at the legs.
OP-BTW my dd is barely 20 lbs and 16 months; I use them on the same snap setting as you show. I used that exact setting for the longest time on ds too.

I loved them too. And then I sold them for no good reason. Why do I keep doing that with stuff that works?!

They're my favorite also! I've had them for a year and I paid $5 each!

Me too! They were the only cover I really liked with a trifolded prefold, although I preferred my bsww and dappi nylon pullon (now there's another great deal of a cover) over snappied prefolds. I got my econobums when DS was a little over a year I think and was just outgrowing his gmd reds snappied so perfect timing for trifolding. Can't wait to try them earlier this time around. We also used flips with the organic prefolds at night starting around 20 months, once he outgrew his disana lg wool cover.
