Question Spam me: Fave PUL covers, very durable

Right now I have Thirsties duo wraps in size 2, a Thirsites sized cover, and Sweet Peas OS covers in my stash. I have others that I use in systems like Econobum and ACs. I've increased my fitteds and would like a couple more covers.

I want something that lasts through hot washing with Tide or Biokleen Premium and machine drying (on low). Double gussets are great, so is one size. Oh and good coverage is a must. Noah is 15 months old and about 23lbs.

I have to be able to buy with debit card, not Paypal, so Etsy and HC are out.

ETA: I was looking at the coveralls by the Swaddlebeees/BB company. Thoughts?

Re: Spam me: Fave PUL covers, very durable

I LOVE blueberry coveralls and swaddlebees capris. They both work fantastically for my chunky 1 year old. Both have double gussets, great coverage, definitely fuller than more streamlined, trim covers like Flip. They're now my go-to covers when I want fuller coverage. I've had them in my stash for a few months now and they look just as good as they did the day I got them. I wash with all free and clear and hang them to dry. They feel very sturdy and I can see them easily fitting him until he's potty trained. HTH

I always hear about how indestructable bummis are but I have only ever had old ones w bad velcro so I cant speak to that.

Another coverall rave here. I have two in snaps that I bought as seconds and they are in great shape. Look brand new still and I love their coverage for over snappied pfs and flats. Ive had them about 3 years. I always hang dry my covers but use tide and occasional bleach in my washing routine.

Thanks ladies! I guess I'll stick with the coverall and see what happens.

Re: Spam me: Fave PUL covers, very durable

I've only used Bummis covers, I like the Super Brites the best for daily use and the velcro is awesome now, in fact on 2 of my SWW the PUL is going and the velcro is still going strong. The only Bummis cover I didn't like was the Super Lite, we had one and while the fit was nice, it leaked at the seams. Might work for a not so heavy wetter though!

Re: Spam me: Fave PUL covers, very durable

Why not toss non-poopy covers in with baby's clothing laundry instead of diapers? Then hang dry :-)

I do sometimes hang them dry but normally it's machine dry. I want something that will work with our lifestyle, not something I have to work around, you know?

I don't really like H&L, I would prefer snaps.

Covers are a snap to wash in the bathroom sink - swish around, give a good rub around the legs and tummy and hang to dry on the towel rack/shower rod.
Mother-ease Air Flow, Bummis Original and Bummis Whisper Pants are my fave. Mother Air flows are PUL and the Bummis are nylon though.
