What in your diaper stash is bulletproof?

I've tried wool/pf/fitteds, pockets and pf/pul covers. The only thing I've found to work the best are pf/pul covers. The wool would always feel damp after 1.5-2 hrs and the pockets leak occasionally.

What works the best for you? Do you have something that's leak proof? If so, what specifically?

Blueberry pockets with bamboo inserts

I'm happy with all our other stuff, but wouldn't call it "bulletproof"

Re: What in your diaper stash is bulletproof?

Over night we use bamboo PF's with a hemp insert, or Bitti Boo bamboo fitted with an extra mini booster always topped with wool... The bamboo pf's are stretchy so they hug the legs and contain poo better than cotton at night. If your wool was wet, then there probably wasn't enough absorbency in the diaper. Anything with bamboo or hemp might help - good luck!

Thirsties hemp prefolds in a Flip cover, will hold a ton. And are pretty trim as well for day use.

My fitteds/prefolds/flats and wool combo are all bullet proof too. I use the prefolds and flats under single layer interlock or a few knit pieces during the day. I use the fitteds under double layer interlock at night. Sometimes the inside is a bit damp after morning and night time but never the outside.

Pf, a hemp doubler with a fleece cover works best for my toddler.

After over 2 years of CDing I do not think anything is Bulletproof if it is saturated. But with that being said sized old style FB's and Dream-eze have worked great for us.
