What's under that cover?

When using a wool cover, you're also going to have to have something absorbent underneath since the wool cover acts only as a waterproof barrier.  When deciding on what you want to put on underneath, it really comes down to personal preference. I currently use fitted diapers, which look just like AIOs without the waterproof layer on the outside.

Here are the ones I currently own:
3 Kissaluvs Organic Cotton/Hemp Fitted Diaper
Front snapped to it's smallest setting. There are no rise snaps on these.
The inside has a snap-in doubler that you can fold in the middle to add even more layers of absorbency (for girls).

2 Ecoposh One-Size Fitted Pocket Diaper in Love
Snapped to the smallest setting with both inserts included to the left.


You can see the pocket in which makes this fitted unusual and really a great nighttime diapering option!
Here is the largest setting of the Ecoposh up next to a Rumparooz on it's largest setting. They are both made by the same company but the Ecoposh really is bigger.

1 Sustainablebabyish Snapless-Multi Fitted Diaper in Mocha 
This fitted comes without snaps, but they do sell them with snaps so don't worry. I use a Snappi instead of a pin.

The diaper also comes with two inserts which you can layer in to add extra absorbency depending on how heavy a wetter you have/age.


All three of these diapers are ostensibly one-sized and will fit till potty training. There are tons of fitteds to choose from out there and they even come sized for a snugger, trimmer fit.

Another option, if you don't want to go the fitted route is to get some prefolds and use them with a Snappi under your wool cover.

Whatever you decide, just make sure the fit is right so that the cover doesn't get dirty. When you take these off baby, just throw them into your drybag or wet pail and wash with all the rest of your diapers. However don't do this with your wool cover.  Also, when you take the cover off, turn it inside out to air dry.
