Tell me about econobum covers

I need some more covers, I trifold and snappi. Grovia are my favorite but looking for a few inexpensive covers until I can get some more grovias. How do econobum hold up? Do you snappi or trifold with them? Likes, dislikes? Thanks!!!

They are my favorite for a snappi flat or pf. Not a fan of them trifolding though but I do not trifold much. For trifolding diaper safari or diaper rite are better IMO

I like them for trifolding, I don't feel like they come down far enough on the hip for snappied prefolds without a lot of tucking. But they are stretchy and they fit my ds really well.

I love them. Wish they would fit Itsy for a little longer. Snappied flat + Econobum = sposie trim.

I love them...have several different covers, but reach for Econobums the most. I use them over a pinned prefold or flat and they are super trim. I have even left DD in one at night and it held up for about 8 hrs.

Flips are my favorite for trifolding. Econobums are great for snapi'd dipes, but not my favorite for trifolding. This is because they lack that extra bit of PUL at the front and back to keep the trifolded/padfolded dipe contained. They also run a little small, but that was fine for us because DD is in the 10 percentile. I will say that they are super soft.

They've been great for us so far! Very trim, soft. I don't trifold in them, though -- I think stiffer covers or covers with a flap or two to tuck into are better for that.

Re: Tell me about econobum covers

They are AWFUL! I would never never never recommend them... I had 4 new ones that I used maybe once a week and they started leaking after 6 months... my son couldn't wear pul much (after 2 changes in it he would break out) so at the time so I used wool and fleece mostly

I did normal washes and mostly hung them to dry... get something else... anything else...
