Best covers for tri-folded prefolds

I am wondering what the best covers for prefolds are. I would lay in a tri folded one. I have ordered some flips a d a WAHM made cover with gussets similar to flips. Are there any other options that would work well without pinning or snappies?

Re: Best covers for tri-folded prefolds

I love my Bummis super whisper wraps. I also like the econobum but I am not a snap person so much. I like that the econobum stretches and can pull tight to hold the trifold.

I like:
Swaddlebees Capri
Diaper Rite OS cover (similar if not the same as the Diaper Safari OS cover)
Thirsties Duo in snaps (velcro isn't strong enough to hold the diaper in place IME)
Flips/Econobums

I love the way my weehugger covers hold in the prefolds.

I think just about any cover would work I'm a fan of the thristies duo and bummis brand.

Re: Best covers for tri-folded prefolds

I agree that most snug-fitting covers (not pull-ons) work just fine.

My favorites are Flips, but I've had good luck with Blueberries, Bummis Super Brite and Thirsties Duos.

Just be prepared that, in the EBF stage, you will need to change covers often, because that watery poo just gets all over them! That said, I never had a blowout with this system the way I used to with sposies. If the dirty covers start to drive you nuts, try a few fitteds. They are more $$, but contain everything.

My dd is 19 months. No ebf here. She is on solids and goat milk. We are in that peanut butter stage. Yuck!
