Does anyone use all fitteds but not with wool?

Thinking of going back to fitteds but I don't want wool again. We had our wool fun but I'm not interested in using it again apart from as clothes. Anyone use fitteds and PUL covers? How do you find the bulk? That's my concern since all our fitteds were bulky but it didn't matter because wool was going over them.

I use some homemade fitteds and pf's with fleece covers and with pul. I prefer them with fleece, but have found my fitteds to be trimmer than a pf under our pul. My bummis aren't the best fitting for my son, and I think that creates some of our bulk issue.

I constantly used fitteds coverless @ home & BSRBs are pretty trim under PUL but I still preferred AIOs under clothes.

I use GMD workhorse with Thirsties covers and Sbish Snapless with Grovia and find both to be trim.

I have and currently use fitteds w/PUL covers. Some are bulkier than others. You just have to find the right combo. I dont' use wool as a cover.

For DD (12lbs 2.5 monts) I have the following combos in order of blukiness. I use Thirsts dou 1 or flip covers

The first three easily fit under all her cloths are not any bulkier than some of her pockets.
Wallypop small fitted
Tinkle traps made from infant prefolds
Yellow workhorse

Goodmamma OS--pretty bulky but i dont mind them under fleece pants


When DS2 was in diapers I loved the combo of workhorse and pul covers. They were super trim on him. He wore browns. I had no trouble with them under regular jeans.

We mainly use fitteds or pocket fitteds under fleece. PUL is really thin, though, so I don't think the bulk would be too much of an issue. There are always great WAHM pants, too, like Kumfy Kozies! Her pattern is cut generously in the booty and the rise!

I don't use all fitteds, but I have a few that I use once in a while and use fleece longies over them. I've only had one cover that would ft over my fitteds - Flips, but DD has a sensitivity to their leg elastic casing.

We pretty much only use fitteds at home (feeling more of the AI2 love with the need for pants, but it rashes her up easily), I've taken to putting a Thirsties wrap over them for going out lately. It's not too bulky, besides the fitteds being bulkier than AI2s in and of themselves

We have used and loved MEOS and Sandy's under the MEAF covers! They are absolutely bulletproof. If you're looking for less bulk ME has a new fitted diaper that you might like better.
HTH!
