Do gDiapers work for fitted covers?

I love the look of gDiapers, but I'm not interested in doing both cloth/disposable for the little one we have baking. I've stocked up on quite a few fitteds and some prefolds for the newborn stage. Is there any reason why the gDiapers would not be an acceptable choice for covers for these?

Thanks!

gDiapers aren't waterproof, only the liners are. So you could trifold a prefold and set it in the liner, but I'm not sure it'd work with fitteds.

They wouldn't work with fitteds because there is only a one inch piece of elastic around the hips, so it wouldn't cover the wings, and only the little rectangular liner is waterproof, like pp said.

you should try flip, they have disposable inserts too but the cover goes all the way around the diaper, unlike gdiapers

I agree with the PP's...definitely wouldn't work over fitteds.

If you can find some wool stacinators around (they are not made any more, but some stores still have them, also on fsot) they are t-shirty and bright colored like gPants, but full coverage for fitteds.
