Stacinator Fleece Cover

Does anyone have one of these? The brand is stacinator and its a fleece cover for night. I just bought it from a friend and I'm wondering what would be best to use under it. Right now I use Kawaii GNHW and even double stuffing with two 4 layer bamboo blend inserts, ds has leaks sometimes.

Also, she said she heard you should dry this in the dryer with a dryer sheet to repel wetness. Is that true? I have no problem drying it in the dryer because I normally dryer dry my bamboo inserts. I never use a dryer sheet even with regular clothes laundry. I heard it can cause buildup in your dryer. What do y'all think?

For fleece you don't need to do anything special to dry it. Fleece breathes a lot and the warmth sometimes creates a wet feeling on sheets or clothes...but it's not necessarily leaking. Could it be that?

Re: Stacinator Fleece Cover

Dryer sheets will do no good for your regular diapers because you want them to absorb or wick moisture to the absorbent part. Not to repell it.
With fleece you want it to repel moisture, so dryer sheets are fine.

It sounds like your LO needs a fitted diaper for overnight. I have a Stacinator fleece cover that I got off FSOT long time ago. It didn't work for us unless it was paired with a good abosorbent fitted and fleece longies on top.

I have a Stacinator that looks exactly like yours. I put it over any fitted.

I think that is what I'll try for nighttime. Do you put regular pjs on top. Do they stay dry?

But is it ok if I just dry it without a dryer sheet? I really don't want to use dryer sheets at all. I think you are right about using a fitted - thanks.

For nighttime I put it over a nighttime diaper -- a pocket fitted stuffed with an XL Babykicks toddler size hemp PF and a cotton doubler. With that bulletproof combo, yes I put cotton jammies over it and yes they do stay dry (might feel a bit damp in front, but not wet).

Re: Stacinator Fleece Cover

i used stacinator fleece on my older daughter 7 years ago. LOL i used them over a premium prefold with a regular prefold trifolded inside. that was soooooo rediculously bulky but it worked.
i never dried mine with fabric softener.

You are welcome.
I think you should be fine without dryer sheets. I never used them.

Re: Stacinator Fleece Cover

I have three of them I used with DD as a newborn and am planning to use again with this newbie. They are great for newbies since they are so soft and don't bother the cord. I used them over fitteds and prefolds. Washing I just wash them with the rest of my diapers and dry in the dryer too. I've heard the dryer sheet thing before, it is supposed to make fleece more water repellent but I have never done it or seen the need to do it either. Hope that helps, they are a great cover!
