Has anyone used Basic Connection Pull on diaper covers?

I am thinking of getting a few of these for play diaper covers. How do they hold up, do they leak, are they poofy (size up, down, or go with the weight) Reviews anyone? Her thirsties are wearing out so fast because of all my washing, so I am wanting to get her a couple cheap diaper covers just for playing. We have a large sandbox so she gets dirty even through her clothes out there! Or any other suggestions for a cheap play worthy cover?

My LO hates using the dappi covers I got him, he is 27 months. He hates the poofiness of it, but it is bulletproof! BUT I got some of the basic connections covers for baby girl (due any time) and they are soft and pretty. I will probably be going with your way of thinking next summer when she is out trying to hang with her big brothers.

I've never tried them...but if it's just play, can you let her go coverless? My kids get sand and stuff all over their fitteds and prefolds and it washes right out.

We bought one awhile ago and there was leaking and compression wicking and after only a few uses the thread started to come undone and ended up w/ a hole. I LOVE our dappis and as pretty as the BC are I still wont buy anymore.

Re: Has anyone used Basic Connection Pull on diaper covers?

I bought one used from here a couple months back. I use it occasionally and haven't had any leaking with it. I prefer the nylon dappis because they are so much softer... although the basic connection ones had a higher rise. I probably use it one time for every 2-3 times I use my other covers.

I agree with the pp's. Nice color, but the dappis are much better made. And I get compression leaking with them as well.

If you really want color, I'd get the dappis and koolaid dye them. Skip the BC's.
