Imse Vimse what's similar?

Hi, so I have only done cloth diapers as a nanny and the mother and I tested many diapers with her little ones. We found Imse Vimse to be the ones we like best. We did the covers and lined them with Rumparooz 6-r soaker inserts. I was wondering if any of you have used these and if you liked them? Also have any of you found ones similar you love as well? Thank you ladies. I'm 9 weeks pregnant and we are planning to do cloth diapers with our little one.

IV diapers never fit my kids right. It's bummer because they have a wool wrap that is suppose to be great. Also the niki and niji breathable covers have the same fit, which I would have loved to use too.

I like the fit of the Niki breathable a lot. I have a Niji, and don't like the fit on my little one.

Thank you, sounds like it might be best to try several types out with the little one and see what will fit best. I'm thinking of trying to make some of my own as well.

I loved the thirsties duo size 1 wrap especially if expecting a baby 7lbs+. I also liked the RAR newborn covers, which I got for my second as the "in case of small baby". She wasn't small (8lbs) but they still fit her for a good amt of time, though she never used the smallest rise.

Re: Imse Vimse what's similar?

When you say similar to imse vimse, in what way are you looking for them to be similar? So far my favorite non wool covers have been Motherease Airflow. I wish I knew about them from the start. I love that they allow air in since so many other covers seem like wrapping the baby in plastic. I have a lot of other covers I love too, but as my baby has been outgrowing them, the only non wool covers I have been buying now have been Motherease Airflow.

You may also want to try the nikky and niji covers. They are actually breathable through the cover (vrs just at the edges). For instance if you hold a PUL cover up to you mouth and suck in you get no air. In the niji (and presumably the nikky haven't tried it) you actually do get a bit of air. They fit just didn't work for my LO .
