No flames here, but I do agree that the poor kiddo would probably be hot and miserable with a sposie/cover combo. Maybe you could get them some Flips with disposable inserts, just to try?? Then it's still disposable for them, but she can have her cute covers, too.

Is it a girl or boy? If it's a girl I'm sure you could find cotton covers, Rufflebutts is one that comes to mind. If it's a boy I bet you could find something on Etsy or have something made if you can't. It would probably be best not to put plastic over plastic.

Re: Cover over a sposie?

There are cute ones for sposies in the new pottery barn kis catalogue. They have matching hats

Re: Cover over a sposie?

I put a SoftBums Echo cover over disposables while we were vacationing without laundry facilities for a few days. For us, disposables = disgusting blow-outs so it was nice to have something to protect his clothes from poop explosions.

That said, my son TRULY hated them. He is normally a SUPER happy baby and by the third day he SCREAMED with HORROR every time I tried to put a disposable on him.

(Also, I agree with the others' flames, but I know we're preaching to the choir so I won't bother!)

Re: Cover over a sposie?

For cuteness and normal use, especially in hot weather, I wouldn't recommend it. For functionality and dire circumstances, I do it. If I have to put DS in a sposie, I nearly always cover it with an Econobum or a Tweedlebug, our normal covers. I can't stand the leaks if he poops and the covers take care of that. I also can't stand the look when a sposie goes all saggy and to the side, not necessarily full of pee but just lumpy and lopsided. A cover keeps things in place. *shrug*

Re: Cover over a sposie?

I agree it'd be hot, but c'mon, people! What's with the judgement!? I honestly hate tthe attitude I'm seeing on this thread. She's never tried cloth - is it at all possible the mom didn't REALIZE that a cover on a sposie would be hot? Oh, you're right, probably not. She just more concerned about putting chemical ridden sposies on her poor little babies bum. Quick, someone call CPS!

I agree with PP, that for temperature control and comfort that fleece or wool soakers would be my suggestion. In fact, ever nice thing about combining sposies with soakers us you have more available fabrics. I used acrylic yarn to knit a diaper cover for my niece. Now it can be just washed in the washer and dryer with everything else.

Any typos are probably a combination of my phone and poor proofreading!

OP, if she just wants cute covers, I would go with fleece. Easy to wash and maintain, and more breathable than a PUL cover.

OP uses cloth, obviously. She knows sposies are full of chemicals, but her friend doesn't. So why are we bashing the OP

Maybe a wool cover? Or show her the flips disposable inserts?
