Re: HOW do you go coverless???

My baby boy is 6 months. I just stick him in a pinned prefold. Sometimes my shirt gets wet, but I guess I just don't care.

Re: HOW do you go coverless???

When she was very small, I just wrap her in a fleece or wool blanket or a larger prefold. Now that she is mobile, I just feel her as she runs by and change her quickly. We don't do it all day, more like a couple hours every day if it's not too cold.

Re: HOW do you go coverless???

I didn't let my kids go coverless until they were walking fulltime, that way I didn't have to worry about the diaper rubbing up against the floor. I also will only use a thick, absorbent fitted, such as a Goodmama, while being coverless.

Re: HOW do you go coverless???

I wasnt able to "enjoy" letting DD go coverless until she started walking. Before then, I would be holding her and when she peed i would get wet : (

I just touch the outside of the diaper often to check for wetness. Or I can tell with bamboo fitteds because when they get wet, they sort of harden.

Haha well it looks like I've just got an excuse to get her some wool shorties because she's definitely a super soaker and that just wouldn't go well.

Both my girls go coverless at home, I just check diapers often and as soon as they start to feel damp I change them

I must have a super soaker. When she wets, it's immediatly through her fitted. I usually end up with a wet pantleg or a wet couch from compression... I guess baby pee doesn't gross me out? The laminate flooring doesn't really mind either.

Re: HOW do you go coverless???

My DD let's me know the second she'd wet. I tend to use my really cute (and super absorbant) fitteds when i plan to go coverless, so it is a rare occasion when the outside of the fitted will feel wet before i know she needs to be changed. DS on the other hand would pee straight through whatever was on him (forceful pee-er) so we couldn't do coverless with him.
