Re: Fitted love? Yes or no?

I started off w/pockets, then moved to aios, and now adore fitteds. I'd use them all the time, but for daycare aio is easier.

Haha, that is my current progression too. What's your favorite fitted?

I used some fitteds over the summer when my little man was running around in just a dipe all day. I never used a cover with them until recently, and I always wondered why spend so much money on an adorable diaper that you have to cover? Fitteds like Sandys and Workhorse make way more sense to me, and I prefer snapless under a cover to reduce bulk. But they are easy to put on, contain messes well, and give you a lot of mileage for your cover. I am stocking up on workhorses for my new baby in the small sizes to cover her EBF stage and taking it from there. For my son I use prefolds or contours under covers and pockets or AIOs when we are out and about. I definitely get crushes on fitteds because they tend to be so freaking cute, but I talk myself down because I just prefer other styles for functionality.

Re: Fitted love? Yes or no?

We don't discriminate in this household. Ok I guess we don't do prefolds that much, but we have AIOs, pockets, ai2, fitteds and wool. We love them all!

I tried fitteds and did not like them. I found that b/c they are heavy they got droopy when wet and because they were damp on the outside after 1 or 2 pees and I had to change them every 45 minutes to an hour. I was really sad b/c I had a gorgeous stash of them, they are beautiful!

I'm leaning this way too. I really like my WHs & contours!! Fitteds are so cute, but I just can't justify spending so much more on stuff I'm going to cover up. I know they are a bit trimmer, but I still have been more pleased w/an unsnapped WH than the Kiwi Pies & BSRB I have. Just preference I guess

Re: Fitted love? Yes or no?

We are just getting into the fitteds here. I made some RRP pocket fitteds and stuff with yellow organic GMD prefolds. We use those mostly coverless at home during the day. I also turned some Brown GMD seconds prefolds into fitteds that I embelished on the outside. We can use those coverless also at home. I just ventured into the world of custom fitteds/WAHM fitteds and can't wait. The first one we have coming will be a hybrid with a hidden layer of windpro so it will be functional coverless. When we do use covers, they are fleece now.

Like at 2 in the morning when ds2 still isn't sleeping and I am falling asleep with the knitting needles still in my hands and a stitch hanging on the needle not finished.
We use sbish fitteds and wool pants... My DH loves them because its 'pull ups'
