When I started cloth diapering, I wasn’t sure where to start or what style would work best. I did my research and read tons and tons of blog posts and reviews. In the end, I picked what I thought would work best for us, which ended up being pockets. Naturally, after a few months of use, I was addicted to them and I had no desire to try anything else, especially diaper covers. Pockets were the easiest option for everyone. I have sewn about half of my stash and just covers just weren’t my thing. Neither were AIO or AI2. That might be due to the fact I hate sewing them LOL. But then I received my first Diaper Covers, four adorable Bummis Super Whisper Wraps.
I fell in love. So easy to use and the best part, no more STUFFING! I don’t mind when I have time, but if I fall behind on laundry, last thing I feel like doing is stuffing diapers. I throw anything in there, from flour sack towels to prefolds to hemp inserts. They work great over my Mother-ease One Size .They were my go to diaper when we went on vacation. I can usually get 2 or 3 uses out of a cover before laundry day, unlike pockets which is a one time use.
My husband still doesn’t like them. He doesn’t trust them to not leak. I haven’t had any leak issues, but he is still a skeptic, and thats ok. I do most of the diaper changes around here anyway. I am going to have to upgrade to covers with snaps though. Hook and loop closures don’t last 5 minutes with Peanut. Thats my only complaint about my current covers. It just means they have to be covered. No showing off the cute fluffy bums,
