favorite inexpensive cover

I'm looking around for covers for my newest LO. I have BGs, a few Flips, and some other random covers. I tend to pad fold flats or origami fold and secure with a pin. I'm hoping to get one-size covers so they fit longer and require less $$ out of pocket. So what covers do you recommend and why? What should I avoid completely?

Re: favorite inexpensive cover

I have 4 wonderwraps. I think i got them on clearance for like 8 each? They have been my primary covers and have lasted since he was about 4 mths old (22 mths now) It now has some wear issues (stitching coming undone alittle) but they still work wonderfully and I can fix it - I'm just too lazy. No wicking even with a super soaker. I have washed AND dried them so many times over and they still work great!

I've also used prowraps covers and they are inexpensive but sized and run small to me.

hth!

Re: favorite inexpensive cover

The nicest inexpensive one size covers I've tried are the Imagine one size covers. I've only been using them a few months, so I don't know about durability, but they seem super durable. They are also bulletproof - I use them at night with no leaks (I just sold my wool cover because I prefer these). I hear the new Diaper Safari covers are getting a lot of love right now too, and those seem like they would be great for padfolding.

What about econobums? They are almost the same as flip except no flaps & just a single row of snaps. A really nice, inexpensive cover.

Re: favorite inexpensive cover

I was considering econobums, but I'm concerned about how they hold up.

I'm not a fan of Econobums. I think they feel cheap, but lots of people like them.

My favorite inexpensive cover is Diaper Safari. They are usually always running some kind of sale on them. They are out of stock right now but said they will have more in 6-8 weeks.

They are a great cover!! I think what makes them cheaper is the white PUL and one row of snaps. I loved the fit of them when DD was tiny, around 10 lbs or so. The one row of snaps fit better on her tummy, vs the 2 rows of snaps on Flips and other covers.

I have the thirsties duo covers. They are not the cheapest, but we love how they work.

Flip covers are about $7 when they go on sale or seconds
