Cool Help me find the perfect fitted

Ok, here's the deal; I'm expecting my 2nd & need to round out my CD stash. We used CD 100% with DD. I'm an huge prefold fan & will use them again the majority of the time. However, I had some minor issues (different at different ages) that I would like to help solve with fitteds.

#1 The breast feed runny poops. No matter how I folded/wraped/tucked the PF, it often leaked onto the cover which created a lack of covers & more washing. I want to use fitteds during the day only, and they need to be cheap. I'm pretty sure I'm gona go with Kissaluvs, but would love to hear any other suggestions.

#2. Extremely squirmy older baby. After trying every type of diaper they make, I ended up just tri-folding a PF and laying it in the cover, or doing the normal PF wrap just w/o the snapi (as long as the cover was on snug, this worked ok most of the time.) I really want M/L - L/XL sized fitteds with no fasteners, no snaps, velcro, or anything. Something designed to be used w/ a snapi would be great. And again, price matters, so maybe a WHAM that would give a discount for no snaps?

Re: Help me find the perfect fitted

hey mama, i make fitteds, using bamboo and/or hemp. i sell them with soakers ($25) and with out ($18).. if you purchase just the shell you can use a prefold in them or a soaker from another diaper (or make your own if you are handy!). they come with out snaps and are great at containing EBF poop! i'm running a photo contest now so if you submit a photo you could win a free diaper.

alternatively, GMD workhorse fitteds are great and inexpensive, but they are cotton so they aren't as absorbent as bamboo.

Re: Help me find the perfect fitted

I would go with Bugga Bugga Boutique basic economic fitted. They are super cute and at $13 each for a OS, a great deal.

If you search FSOT, you may find some good deals on BSRB snapless fitteds too - they hold up great for overnight and toddlers.

Re: Help me find the perfect fitted

For both of these cases I would go with Tinkle Traps or GMD workhorse prefitteds. As easy to clean as a prefold, but with elastic to keep stuff in. Get the closureless ones so you can customize the fit. I LOVE Tinkle Traps and just started using Workhorse and I love them. They weren't out when my littles were newborn but this next time I'm getting them.

Thanks! The Bugga Basics in flannel is exactly what I'm looking for & what a steal at $7-$11.

Sorry, but what does BSRB stand for?

Re: Help me find the perfect fitted

We love GMD workhorse fitteds. We use them with a snappi. It's the diaper I usually reach for first (well, that and my BG Elementals).
