econobums, diaper rite or ?

im looking to try a new cover with pad folded flats. im thinking about trying an econobum, but im not sure i should since flips dont fit my ds right (hes in between sizes m and l). i really want a cover with snaps though. so then i was thinking of the diaper rite covers. not sure if those will be the same size as the flips though. and other than that i was thinking maybe a bsww. i have one already and it fits ok. what do you think? (im looking to just add something to my order at diaper junction and cant spend more than $14 on a cover)

Re: econobums, diaper rite or ?

I have a couple of different covers and I love my Econobum. My LO has a tiny tush and small thighs so I was worried that it wouldn't fit her well with my prefolds but it's one of my favorite covers!

I love my diaper rites. Pretty much the only cover we use. I just don't like the exposed snaps on the econobums.

I've had issues with Econobums wearing out, so I'd go for BSWW or Super Snaps. You can tuck pafflded flats under the flap and they last forever!

i love the econobum pfs but i didnt like the cover. It doesnt fit the same as the flip though, my ds is betw m and l rise snaps on the flip and is on the l rise in the econobum. Do they sell thirsties duo? You should try that one if they do. Bsww is for chunkers or if you want loads of coverage imo, awesome for fitteds, too much for anything padfolded. I know nothing about diaper rite covers

Re: econobums, diaper rite or ?

i liked econobums when i used to have some my only issue with them is esp for older babies is the wing droop! only 1 row of snaps! i LOVE diaper rite bamboo pockets, love the fit so so much. I am a flip girl but i am realllllly contemplating trying a diaper rite cover, i like how the inside looks with the nice flaps. I am just afraid if i try one that i will want more and my goal is to have somewhat of a simple stash!

I find that the Econobum fits my son perfectly with a padfolded flat, where the flip is awkward (due to his being between sizes).
