Re: SUPER gentle cover recs

Nikkys and Imse Vimse are by far the most gentle covers I've tried (out of a TON!) They both run large, but just size down. If you get the correct size for your child, they are very trim for trifolding. And when I mean size down, size DOWN. DS was too small for an XL nikky and almost to small for a L at 2 years old and nearly 30lbs, if that helps you. The large IV did ok but the XL nikky was way to big, even over bulky fitteds, he really needed a large.

Re: SUPER gentle cover recs

Bummis also makes a sized fleece cover, but I haven't actually tried it. I have tried the SWW, though, and it was always pretty great for us. No exposed PUL on the inside, and we never got red marks on the legs. We did with the Super Brite, though. I think maybe because of the gusset and exposed PUL.

I have looked for the Bummis fleece cover many times over several months but it's never in stock, it looks really nice so that's a shame.

I appreciate all the suggestions, and about sizing down on the Imse Vimse. I think I'm going to give them and the Wild Child fleece ones a try, I need something right away and they're both in stock. Thanks again!

Wallypop fleece covers work great for trifolding! And Sweet Peas are one of the few PUL covers that didn't leave red marks on my DD and they're cheap. Super gentle elastic! I hope you find something that works for you

Ahh yes the Sweet Peas...I knew there was some name like that! I get mixed up between SUgar Pea and Sweet Pea. So the PUL on them is softer than regular PUL covers? Because they are very affordable. I like the look of the Wallypop's too. I'll have to mull it all over, but I feel like I've got a bunch of great suggestions. Thanks!
